CAMP PREVIEW: QUARTERBACKS
Dolphin Digest|August 2020
ON THE ROSTER

Ryan Fitzpatrick — The Dolphins MVP in 2019, Fitzpatrick is back for a 15th NFL season and second one with Miami.

Josh Rosen — The 2018 first-round pick of the Arizona Cardinals will head into his second Dolphins training camp with his career very much at a crossroads.

TOP 8 Worst encore seasons

There have been plenty of tough acts to follow in the history of the 49ers franchise with a team that has five Super Bowl championships, seven Super Bowl visits, 16 trips to the NFC Championship game, and 27 playoff appearances. That kind of success has seen the 49ers enter many seasons over the years looking to take the next step to greatness or simply maintain it. That makes them fall and crash even worse when San Francisco failed to achieve those goals coming off triumphant seasons. The 2020 49ers know all about it, which lands them a place on this list of the worst encore seasons in franchise history.
