On Wednesday's 2 Pros and a Cup of Joe, Jonas Knox, Brady Quinn and LaVar Arrington react to the Dolphins being punished for tampering with Tom Brady during his last season in New England as well as with former Saints head coach Sean Payton. Dolphins owner Stephen Ross was fined $1.5M, suspended 6 games and will forfeit the teams' 2023 first and 2024 third round picks, but that can actually be seen as a good thing for their current QB, Tua Tagovailoa.

Jonas Knox: "Aggressive approach by Miami there, huh?"
Brady Quinn: "I'll just say this, it's good for Tua because now you've got less ammunition if you are the Miami Dolphins of going to replace him at quarterback next year in the draft. They don't have a first round pick. They don't have a third round pick in a future draft that they could use to move up and get a guy that they want. So at least in the immediate term, it's almost great for Tua. It obviously doesn't help Stephen Ross, but the rest of it is kind of history now because none of that came to fruition."
LaVar Arrington: "That was the first thing I thought. Let's see, $1.5 million fine, six game suspension and you lose a first round draft pick, but you would have had Tom Brady and Sean Payton. Like it's probably worth it. I'm gonna take my shot."
