QB Kevin OConnell - Free Agent
|6-5, 225||Born: 5-25-1985||College: San Diego State||Drafted: Round 3, pick|
2008 Week 3 vs MIA (3 / 4 / 25 / 0 / 0 pass, 0 / 0 / 0 rush)
Rookie backup QB Kevin O'Connell filled in for Matt Cassel late in the game. Although his body of work was small and it came at a time when the Dolphins defense was much more concerned with the victory celebration, O'Connell completed 75% of his passes and looked decisive. His yards per attempt clocked in at 6.3 and while it wasn't enough to cause a QB controversy, the rookie showed he could prove to be a worthy option should Cassel continue to struggle.
2008 Week 16 vs ARI (1 / 2 / -2 / 0 / 0 pass, 3 / -6 / 0 rush)
OConnell came in at the 14:51 mark of the fourth period. He threw only twice and was relegated to handing off to Morris and Jordan to finish the game.
