It’s Magic: Dolphins QB Ryan Fitzpatrick Dons Surprising New Look

Ryan Fitzpatrick lost the Miami Dolphins’ starting quarterback job, but his attempt to stay fashionable marches on.

Fitzpatrick showed up to Wednesday’s practice with a trimmed beard and short shorts — a major change from what we’re accustomed to seeing.

Usually, Fitzpatrick resembles someone who would star on “Duck Dynasty,” with a long and often uneven beard flowing from beneath his face mask.

Known in NFL circles as “Fitzmagic,” the 37-year old QB made no secret about his disappointment in being demoted behind rookie Tua Tagovailoa after leading the Dolphins to a 3-3 start. The team is now 4-3.

But seven interceptions in six games led Dolphins coach Brian Flores to make a change and give Tagovailoa a chance.

Apparently, Fitzpatrick decided his status behind center wasn’t the only thing that should be different.
