A former Michigan Wolverines quarterback received some tough news on Saturday afternoon.

Jake Rudock's time with the Miami Dolphins has reportedly come to an end.

After signing with the team for the 2019 season, the Dolphins decided to part ways with the former Michigan quarterback.

NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport broke the news.

Rudock was the No. 191 overall player in the 2016 draft after spending a grad transfer year at Michigan, starting for Jim Harbaugh's first Wolverines team.

He was drafted in the sixth round by the Detroit Lions after a strong pro day, and cracked the active roster in November.

After three seasons with the Lions, Rudock signed with the Dolphins and new head coach Brian Flores.

It looks like Miami is confident in Ryan Fitzpatrick and Josh Rosen to lead the team this year. Flores named the veteran Fitzpatrick as the team's starter earlier this week.
