Luke Falk is now a Miami Dolphin.

The Dolphins claimed the former Washington State quarterback off the waiver wire, adding a fourth quarterback to the team’s 53-man roster.

Falk was a 2018 sixth-round pick of the Tennessee Titans, which happen to be Miami’s opponent for the Sept. 9 season-opener.

Falk led Washington State to a 28-15 record, completing 68.3 percent of his passes in a spread offense. He passed for 14,481 yards and threw 119 touchdowns during his collegiate career.

Falk completed 13 of 24 passes for 114 yards no interceptions and was sacked four times during the Titans final preseason game.

The Titans didn’t keep Falk on his 53-man roster because they have Marcus Mariota as the team’s starter and veteran Blaine Gabbert as his backup.

The Dolphins have Ryan Tannehill as the team’s starter, and kept Brock Osweiler and David Fales as his primary backup.

How long Miami keeps four quarterbacks on the 53-man roster will probably depend on how Falk performs, and how quickly he learns the offense.
