Streveler helped the Blue Bombers win the Gray Cup in 2019, then quickly transitioned to the NFL, where he backed Cardinals QB Kyler Murray. He also had a stint with the Baltimore Ravens last season, where he spent time on the team’s practice squad.
Now he lands in Miami with Mike McDaniel and should, if nothing else, give the offensive-minded head coach a versatile weapon to use in a variety of ways.
Streveler played in 7 games in his two major league seasons, completing 17/25 passes for 141 yards, one touchdown and one interception. He also had some big runs that showed off his explosive speed.
Here’s every drop I can think of from Chris Streveler’s NFL career.
FWIW, Streveler was one of Madden22’s fastest quarterbacks — which means he’s a real cheese — and his 4.51 pro day backs it up.
So while I don’t think Streveler will be pushing for the starting job anytime soon (or ever), I think he can be a valuable asset.
And after hitting the table for Jacoby Brissett an offseason ago (I NEVER SAID TO DROP TUA FOR NO REASON), I have to say that Miami might have been much better off in 2021 with Streveler holding the press- Tagovailoa papers.
TLDR: Chris Streveler may be the team’s quarterback in 2022, but his real value will come as a gimmicky player in Mike McDaniel’s heavy(?) offense. His 4.51 speed makes him an asset in the running game, and his medium arm will keep defenses on his toes.
I don’t know about you, but I’m very plot to see what Streveler can do and what kind of tricks mad scientist Mike McDaniel has up his sleeves. After all, it was his outside-the-box thinking that landed him the Dolphins job in the first place.
What do you think of Chris Streveler? Do you think he will make it to the Miami Dolphins’ 53-man roster? Could it potentially be used in the Wildcat? Maybe a change in position to wide receiver? Let us know in the comments section below!
