DAVIE–Adam Gase finally, finally, revealed the answer to a mystery I’ve been chasing since the beginning of the season: Who is the Dolphins’ emergency quarterback?

This has actually been relevant at times, such as when back-up Matt Moore was in question for the season opener or now that Ryan Tannehill is out long-term with a sprained knee. When Tannehill went down Sunday against Arizona, Moore was the only active quarterback on the roster. So what would Gase have done if Moore went down?

Turns out he had two options: Tight end MarQueis Gray and wide receiver Jarvis Landry.

“MarQueis has played quarterback before, and Jarvis knows our offense well enough to where he can go in there and do some stuff,” Gase said. “We have options with those guys as far as finishing a game. It’s not ideal, for sure. We’d have to be really smart with what we have for those guys.”

As a quarterback at the University of Minnesota, Gray threw for 2,053 yards and had 14 touchdowns against 11 interceptions in his career. Landry has thrown two passes in his NFL career, completing one last season for nine yards.
