Add one more Eagle to the list of players trying to find a home in the NFL. Quarterback Chase Rettig had a try out today with the Miami Dolphins.
Rettig, who started with Boston College for three and a half seasons, finished his career with 8,248 yards, 52 touchdowns and 39 interceptions. He was given the starting role by Frank Spaziani after then starter Dave Shinskie struggled to open the 2010 season. He was an up and down quarterback, giving you inspiring games like Syracuse in 2013, and difficult games to watch like Florida State in 2012.
In 2014 Rettig was brought in by the Green Bay Packers on a non drafted rookie free agent deal. He struggled during the preseason however and was cut by the Packers on August 24, 2014. Earlier this year Rettig was rumored to be a Graduate Assistant on the Boston College staff.
Miami currently has a crowded situation at the quarterback position with Ryan Tannehill starting, and Matt Moore and Josh Freeman battling for the backup job. Rettig certainly will have his work cut out for him if he wants to make the team. But still, this is a great opportunity and we wish Chase the best.
