Dolphins rookie quarterback Max Silva is living the dream. He’s not just in the NFL, which is a huge accomplishment in itself. He’s playing for his favorite team, which also happens to be located in his hometown.
“This is my job, but it also is pretty crazy,” said Max, the North Broward Prep alum who is the No. 2 quarterback behind starter Jacoby Brissett.
“I don’t think there’s a lot of guys around the world that can say they play for their favorite team.”
Silva , the Fith-round pick from Miami , was a long shot in camp – the Dolphins haven’t kept three quarterbacks on the roster in years – but he didn’t lower his expectations.
“I wanted to make this team,” he said. “That was my goal when I first got drafted was to make this team.”
Things could be more intense for Max at this time next year, depending on how Brissett fares a Actually, things could be more intense Sunday at Seattle, where the Seahawks’ pass rush and the Dolphins’ pass protection could be a dangerous combination.
