For undisclosed draft pick(s).

I actually thought this might have made sense for Sage and the Vikings, although I'm not sure if going back to Miami would have been better than staying in Minny anyway. Doesn't matter now.

I like Thigpen. Makes sense if Henne fails...or they just plug him in. He did well last year for a struggling team.

I like him too, but with a 0-3 record, and four of their next five games being against the Jets (twice), the Pats, and the Saints, I'm not sure it's gonna matter much in the overall scheme of things.

Probably not but Thigpen was in that situation last season with the Chiefs and made the most of it.

Good move by the Dolphins. Thigpen might be their future for a while. You never know. Dude is young and Pennington will be 34 at the start of next season.

3 surgeries on the same shoulder in as many years? Pennington's done.

Parcells makes moves quickly. If this was the Texans we'd study the QB sitation, sign a scrub and tell us the kids are going to show us what they can do....slowly and over a long period of time.

Good point. Plus, Thigpen wasn't too bad last year. They might be able to do something with him.

The move make sense with the Fins running a spread offense often and Thigpen is that kind of QB

wow, great move. love it. only watched Thigpen play once last year (against Miami) and he looked quite good. did a damn good job at almost keeping Miami out of the playoffs. he can play in the Wildcat, he can spread the ball around....love it.
