Miami Dolphins new quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick showed up for voluntary workouts a little heavier than we’re used to seeing him.  But he’s got a good excuse for gaining a ton of weight.

On Monday, while talking to the media, Fitzpatrick explained how he gained so much weight in the off-season.  It wasn’t to take the punishment he’s likely to endure this season in Miami, it was too much birthday cake.

Fitzmagic is going to be fueled by birthday cake this season.  In other words, it’s going to be a long season for the Dolphins.
