Brady Quinn Signs With Miami Dolphins

Brady-Quinn-Action-Water-670x350
It was seven years ago. NFL Draft day. Remember this…?

I know I do. I can honestly say that I didn’t expect the Dolphins to draft Brady Quinn, but I definitely didn’t expect them to draft Ted Ginn Jr. (and his whole family).

But plenty of fans who were so desperate for a new quarterback for the Miami Dolphins, sat in horror and shock as the administration at that time passed over what was considered the best qb left on the board and decided to draft a speedy receiver who was scared to take a hit.

You saw the reaction there from Quinn. He knew the Dolphins needed a qb. The whole world knew it, and for whatever reason they went with the guy who catches the ball instead of getting a guy who could throw it to the guy who would catch the ball.

Regardless, here we are seven years later and Brady and the Phins have come full circle, as reported by Profootballtalk.com…

Quarterback Brady Quinn, who recently took at job handling college and pro football for FOX Sports, may not be available when football season begins. According to Jeff Darlington of NFL Network, Quinn has signed with the Dolphins.
It appeared he’d slide out of the NFL permanently. But the Dolphins have needs at a minimum for a camp arm. After working out Quinn, John Skelton, and Rex Grossman, the Dolphins opted to sign Quinn.

Quinn has until August 30th to make this Dolphins team again…for the first time.

Miami Dolphins officially make announcement this morning

Rex Grossman Among Quarterbacks To Work Out For Dolphins Today

The Miami Dolphins will be hosting several out of work qb’s today for workouts.

The revelation first came from super agent Drew Rosenhaus on Sunday night during a television appearance. He mentioned that his client, Rex Grossman, would be one of a few quarterbacks working out for the team.

"i'ma-make-it-rain!"

“i’ma-make-it-rain!”


Matt Moore and Pat Devlin both missed action due to injury on Friday when the Dolphins played the Falcons. Both players took part in practice on Sunday.

Devlin’s hamstring issue and the missing of a week of practice have left him vulnerable. Matt Moore and his contract (owed $4 million this year if on the roster) may leave him a little bit expendable as well.

It may seem like the Dolphins are trying to get insurance behind Ryan Tannehill, but at a lower rate.

Stay tuned…

Is Tolerance A One Way Street?

Tolerance.
By definition, it means “the ability or willingness to tolerate something, in particular the existence of opinions or behavior that one does not necessarily agree with.”
The last part of the definition is very telling “…behavior that one does not necessarily agree with”. Read the rest of this entry »

NFL legend Dan Marino adds name to list of former players filing suit for concussions

There have been 4,800 names of former NFL players that have submitted their names as plaintiffs in a concussion lawsuit against the NFL.

One more name added to the list probably trumps all the others.

Dan Marino.

The Hall of Fame quarterback added his name filed suit in a Philadelphia court, alleging that the NFL “concealed information about football-related brain injuries.”

The trend of former players suing the NFL for damages has been kind of disturbing to me. Not from the standpoint of guys who may be broke or downtrodden trying to get money, but from the standpoint of these guys not knowing or acting as if they don’t know what they signed up for in playing this sport.

It’s one thing if the NFL withheld information from these players in regards to how the hits they were getting week in and week out were affecting their bodies. The trend of suing this former employer for not informing players of “damages” seems to be getting old, and rather quickly.

Don’t be surprised if pretty soon, draft picks will have to sign waivers right after signing their contracts.
