Originally posted by ESPNOne day after his release from New York, he found what looks to be a starting job with the Miami Dolphins. Pennington, 32, agreed Friday night to a two-year, $11.5 million contract that pretty well locks him into starting, according to a source. Contacted by six teams on Thursday, Pennington wasted no time reuniting with the person who brought him into the NFL as a first-round pick of the Jets, Bill Parcells.
Parcells pushed hard over the past 48 hours to get a deal with Pennington done. Pennington was scheduled to make $6 million with the Jets but was released when New York acquired Brett Favre from the Green Bay. The Packers get a fourth-round choice that could be upgraded to a No. 1 depending on Favre's play.

Beck's still a project player, but he's not this staff's project. Henne's a long term project and a risk if you try to sneak him onto the practice squad, so that's not likely. The obvious answer would seem to be McCown, but if you get rid of him, you lose the only thing resembling a veteran back-up on the roster.

The Patriots should still win pretty handily, but there should be a lot of nervous Buffalo fans. They've been kind of the "it" team to predict for a turn-around, but their four AFC East games just became a lot more interesting.
Holy fuck shit motherfucker shit. Read comics. Fuck shit shit fuck shit I sold out when I did my job. Fuck fuck fuck shit fuck. Sorry had to do it....

All I know is that the Jets opener at the Dolphins just got a ton more interesting, with Pennington playing his first game away from his former team- against his former team. As if it wasn't going to be interesting enough already with Farve's first start post-Packer.
Well, this should just about gift wrap the AFC East for the Patriots. Pennington's gonna last about 3 games before he gets hurt, Favre's gonna gunsling his way to an interception record, and I haven't heard anything, good or bad about the Bills this year. So yeah, I'm talking out of my ass. PROVE ME WRONG, CHAD.

Really? Because from everything I hear his trading up into the first round to get a guy most people regarded as a third-round-at-best prospect might be part of his undoing if things don't go well. - StingArmy
