Dolphins' Jake Rudock: Links with Dolphins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miami will sign Rudock to the 53-man roster Thursday, Barry Jackson reports.

Rudock will serve as the Dolphins' emergency backup quarterback due to Ryan Fitzpatrick having tested positive for COVID-19. He's expected to slot in as the No. 2 option behind Tua Tagovailoa during Sunday's game against the Bills. Rudock hasn't played since 2017, when he took a handful of snaps across three games with the Lions.

Jake Rudock: Could be option in Chicago
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bears hosted Rudock for a workout Wednesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

The Bears are in search of quarterback depth because Mitchell Trubisky is dealing with a shoulder injury. Rudock hasn't played a game since 2017 when he played just a handful of offensive snaps. Tyler Bray is the favorite to be Nick Foles' backup, but Rudock could be a practice squad option. Kyle Sloter joined Rudock for Wednesday's workout.

Jake Rudock: Let go from practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Dolphins cut Rudlock from the practice squad Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Rudock signed with the practice squad Saturday and lasted just a few days with the team. Since entering the league as a sixth-round pick in 2016, Rudock has suited up in three games but only played a handful of snaps.

Jake Rudock: Back in South Beach
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rudock was added to Miami's practice squad Saturday, per the NFL's official transaction wire.

Rudock was let go by the Dolphins this offseason after spending all of 2019 on the team's practice squad. The Michigan product will look to earn a spot on the 53-man roster in Miami or elsewhere around the league.

Jake Rudock: Let go by Miami
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rudock was cut by the Dolphins on Saturday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

After spending all of 2019 on the Dolphins' practice squad, Rudock will be let go by the team ahead of training camp. The 27-year-old will now search for another backup quarterback job ahead of the 2020 season.

Dolphins' Jake Rudock: Staying in Miami
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rudock signed a reserve/future contract with the Dolphins on Monday.

Rudock spent the entire 2019 season on Miami's practice squad after posting a solid preseason with the team. He stands to compete for a similar role in 2020.

Jake Rudock: Moves to practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Dolphins signed Rudock to their practice squad Thursday, Cameron Wolfe of reports.

Rudock was waived by Miami after a solid preseason, and he now has a chance to make an impact on the practice squad. The 2016 sixth-round pick's knowledge of the Dolphins' offense makes him a candidate to stick with the team's practice squad for the foreseeable future.

Jake Rudock: Cut by Dolphins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rudock was waived by the Dolphins on Saturday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Rudock's only chance to make the 53-man roster was going to be if the team opted to go with three quarterbacks. Instead Miami is just going to roll with Ryan Fitzpatrick and Josh Rosen. Given Rudock's knowledge of the offense, he figures to be a prime candidate to join the Dolphins' practice squad.

Dolphins' Jake Rudock: Goes distance in preseason finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rudock completed 22 of 29 passes for 229 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's preseason win over the Saints.

Miami's No. 3 quarterback played the whole game and looked good, leading the offense to points in three of his four first-half drives. Rudock was rarely active during his three seasons with the Lions, suiting up for only three games in 2017, and that's unlikely to change for the 2016 sixth-round pick with Ryan Fitzpatrick and Josh Rosen ahead of him on the Dolphins' depth chart.

Dolphins' Jake Rudock: Inks with Miami
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rudock signed a reserve/future contract with the Dolphins on Saturday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Rudock has spent his first two seasons in Detroit, but mainly on its practice squad. He did suit up three times this past season, and completed three passes on five attempts of 24 yards and an interception. He will now look to make an impression in Miami to the and earn a spot on the Dolphins 53-man roster.

Jake Rudock: Waived by Detroit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rudock was waived by Detroit on Saturday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

To nobody's surprise, Rudock was unable to supplant Matt Cassel as the No. 2 quarterback behind Matt Stafford in Detroit. The Lions are hoping Rudock will clear waivers and become a member of the practice squad, but there's no guarantee another team won't take a shot at the Michigan product.

Lions' Jake Rudock: Falls to third on depth chart
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rudock -- who worked as the No. 2 quarterback during OTAs -- has fallen behind Matt Cassel on the depth chart, Kyle Meinke of reports.

It's possible the Lions were just allowing Cassel to get acclimated with the offense during OTAs, boosting Rudock to the No. 2 spot during that session. Either way, it now appears, as expected, that Rudock is third in line for snaps behind Cassel and starter Matt Stafford as mandatory minicamp opens. The third spot on the depth chart wouldn't rule out Rudolph from a 53-man spot, but that would require the Lions holding on to three signal-callers.

Lions' Jake Rudock: Tendered by Lions
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rudock, an exclusive-rights free agent, has received a contract tender from the Lions, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Rudock wasn't going anywhere as the Lions like what they have in their 2016 sixth-rounder and seemingly have faith in him as the team's backup quarterback. Barring any sort of unforeseen addition to the depth chart, he'll likely enter the 2018 season in that very role.

Lions' Jake Rudock: Attempts five passes in 2017
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rudock completed three of five pass attempts for 24 yards and one interception in one appearance for the Lions in 2017.

Rudock's only playing time of the season came in Week 13 against the Ravens after starting quarterback Matthew Stafford exited with a hand injury. He fared much better in the preseason when he completed 66.1 percent of his passes for 380 yards, three scores and one interception on 56 attempts. Although Rudock will now be an exclusive-rights free agent at the end of the league year, the Lions like what they have in the 2016 sixth-rounder, rendering him a near certainty to be retained by Detroit this offseason.

Lions' Jake Rudock: Likely to stick in backup role Week 14
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rudock is expected to remain Matthew Stafford's (hand) backup Sunday against the Buccaneers with the latter expected to make his 108th consecutive start, a source informed Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

Rudock saw more reps with the first-team offense than usual this week while Stafford was rendered a limited participant for all three of Detroit's practices, but barring a setback in the hours leading up to Sunday's 1 p.m. EST kickoff, Stafford looks set to direct the offense as the 6-6 Lions fight to stay in the thick of the NFC playoff race. A 2016 sixth-round pick out of Michigan, Rudock saw his most extensive NFL action to date in relief of a hurting Stafford in the Week 13 loss to the Ravens, completing three of five passes for 24 yards and an interception.

Lions' Jake Rudock: Makes brief appearance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rudock completed three of five passes for 24 yards and an interception during Sunday's 44-20 loss to the Ravens.

Stafford bruised his throwing hand in the fourth quarter and was forced to leave a game for the first time since 2015, which allowed Rudock to log a handful of offensive snaps for the first time in his young career. The second-year Michigan product wasn't terrible, but his pick-six was particularly demoralizing to a Lions team that was already down 37-20. Stafford is a tough player who's known for playing through injuries, so it's not certain Rudock will be forced to start this week against the Buccaneers. If that proves to be the case, though, Rudock would be a tough fantasy play despite the incredibly appealing matchup against Tampa Bay.

Lions' Jake Rudock: Drawing trade interest
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rudock is drawing trade interest from other teams, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

This news comes on the heels of Rudock's impressive performance against the Patriots during last Friday's exhibition, in which the second-year QB completed 10 of 13 passes for 113 yards and one touchdown to earn a 128.0 QBR, which bested all three of the quarterbacks that entered the game before he did -- Tom Brady, Matthew Stafford and Jimmy Garappolo. Granted, Rudock was playing against second-string defenders, but there's no doubting that he has the look of an up-and-coming talent. However, the Lions would probably need a really sweet offer to give Rudock up, as they'd be in trouble if something happened to Stafford and current third-stringer Brad Kaaya was forced to take over.

Lions' Jake Rudock: Efficient in third preseason contest
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rudock completed 10 of 13 passes for 113 yards and one touchdown during Friday's preseason game against the Patriots. He also rushed one time for 16 yards.

Once again, Rudock showed he can capably take the reigns of the Lions offense and is firmly entering the season as the undisputed backup to Matthew Stafford. Since Stafford isn't expected to play in the preseason finale Thursday in Buffalo, Rudock could make for an interesting DFS option against an inexperienced group of Bills corners.

Lions' Jake Rudock: Throws for 84 yards Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rudock completed eight of 10 passes for 84 yards and one interception in Saturday's preseason victory over the Jets. He added 11 yards rushing on one attempt.

Though his numbers weren't all that impressive Saturday, Rudock showed touch on his passes and appears to be settling in as the clear backup to Matthew Stafford ahead of the regular season. Unless sixth-round rookie Brad Kaaya does something to make the team reconsider, which is highly unlikely, that shouldn't change.

Lions' Jake Rudock: Clearly established as No. 2 QB
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rudock appears to have clearly established himself as the No. 2 quarterback heading into training camp, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

The drafting of former University of Miami quarterback Brad Kaaya in this year's draft initially seemed to put Rudock's hold on the No. 2 job in question, but it doesn't sound as if Kaaya has been able to pick up the playbook quick enough to serve as legitimate competition. Meanwhile, Rudock has a year of experience in OC Jim Bob Cooter's offense and has shown marked improvement from 2016 during offseason practices. Things could always change prior to Week 1, but Rudock seems unlikely to lose his role unless Kaaya puts on a show during the preseason.
