The Miami Dolphins claimed quarterback Bryce Petty on waivers, one day after he was cut loose by the New York Jets.

The 26-year-old Petty becomes the Dolphins’ fourth quarterback, behind starter Ryan Tannehill, free-agent acquisition Brock Osweiler and last season’s third-stringer, David Fales.

There was speculation that Miami might select a quarterback with the 11th pick in the NFL Draft, but the Dolphins went for defensive back Minkah Fitzpatrick instead.

Petty was a fourth-round pick of the Jets in 2015 and started seven career games for the Jets in the last two seasons, posting a 1-6 record. He completed only 53.1 percent of his passes for 1,353 yards, with four touchdowns to 10 interceptions.
