With Michael Bennett opting to sign in Seattle, Abraham, a 13-year veteran, is visiting the Dolphins, the Sun-Sentinel’s Chris Perkins reports. Read More
The Redskins quarterback speaks with the media about his thoughts as he gets set to return to South Florida to face the Dolphins, the that team he played with for the first two years of his career. Get Beck’s insight on what he was able to learn from Chad Pennington during the Dolphins tremendous 2008 AFC East winning season.
With the lockout now mostly in the rearview mirror, it’s time to start looking ahead and while there has been a ton of conversation about the players the Fins may go after in free agency, we’ve spent a little less time discussing the guys that could be leaving Miami.
The NFL released the official list of free agents this evening, and the Dolphins have 11 total free agents in three different categories.
Chris Boyle (Facebook): Once the lockout ends will the Dolphins go after a quarterback?
Jesse Agler: Absolutely. They pretty much have to just from a roster standpoint. Right now, Chad Henne is under contract. That’s it. There’s a chance (depending on what the new CBA says) that Tyler Thigpen will be back after he was tendered, but I would guess that the new rules will make him a free agent when they new league year starts.
As we continue our look-back at the 2010 Dolphins season, we introduce a new feature: the positional breakdown. With all of the talking about Chad Henne and Chad Pennington and Tyler Thigpen that we’ve done, we figured it made sense to start under center. Our own QB, John Congemi, shares his thoughts on the most important position on the field…

Chad Henne: When you fall short of the playoffs in the NFL, it is disappointing to the players, fans, and the entire organization.
After practice today, Dolphins coach Tony Sparano met with the media to continue to discuss Sunday’s game at the Jets. There were several questions about the team’s much publicized Friday night Broadway outing, which Sparano seems to be looking forward to. He explained that the decision had been made quite some time ago to take the team up a day early and that when owner Steve Ross heard about those plans, he offered to take the team to the show.
Pennington said that he has not given up on whether or not he will return to playing, and puts it at about 50/50 on whether or not he will attempt a comeback. He also said that once he makes his decision, he will stick with it, and vowed not to waffle back and forth.
Yesterday afternoon in Oakland, quarterback Chad Henne returned to the starting lineup after a couple of very up-and-down weeks with the Dolphins. Not only did he collect his third 300-yard passing game of the 2010 season, but Henne looked about as good as he has all year long. Fellow Wolverine Jim Mandich was certainly impressed by what Henne was able to do and shares his thoughts on Henne’s big day in the Black Hole…

Just think about the rollercoaster that Chad Henne has been for the last couple of weeks: he was benched for Chad Pennington, only to be inserted into the Tennessee game after only two plays.
