Brady Quinn Working Out for the Miami Dolphins (Updated)

Seven years later, Brady Quinn could be a Miami Dolphin! And it's basically because the Dolphins are hurting at quarterback right now (still).

Starting QB Ryan Tannehill had a decent performance during the Dolphins' first preseason game over the weekend. But his backups, Matt Moore and Pat Devlin, are both nicked up with injuries, possibly paving the way for free agent QB Brady Quinn to become a Dolphin.

Because, Dolphins.

Update: According to NFL Network's Jeff Darlington, Quinn has signed with the Dolphins.

According to WSVN's Sports Xtra, the Dolphins have scheduled a workout with Quinn.

They've also scheduled a workout with veteran QB Rex Grossman, which is equally hilarious and sad.

But at this point, the Fins are being forced to rummage through the bargain bin for a quality backup for Tannehill.

Neither Moore nor Devlin saw any playing time on Friday night's matchup against the Atlanta Falcons. Moore is dealing with a sore throwing shoulder, while Devlin is still healing from a hamstring injury.

Seth Labato served as Tannehill's backup this week.

This could all very well mean Quinn, a highly touted prospect in 2007, could be a Miami Dolphin after the team surprisingly passed him over in that year's draft for kick returner Ted Ginn Jr.

In hindsight, neither pick would have served the Dolphins well, because both players have gone on to have mediocre careers. Quinn, though, was at one point expected to be the new face of the franchise after a solid career at Notre Dame.

Then the 2007 draft day came, and Quinn began to fall. The Dolphins had the 16th 9th pick, and it would seem the football fates had made a marriage with Quinn a thing.

With the Dolphins sorely needing a QB after Dan Marino's retirement, pretty much everyone was expecting NFL commissioner Roger Goodell to walk up to the podium and announce Quinn as the Dolphins' pick.

And then this happened:

Womp. Womp.

The Ginn pick would eventually be controversial for other reasons -- not least of which because he was pretty middle-of-the-road for a guy selected in the first round, not to mention that he was a kick returner and that he ran passing routes like he was being chased by a bee.

But Quinn's career fizzled too, and he became all but forgotten after being drafted by the Cleveland Browns (haha... Cleveland).

Now, the long-awaited get-together could finally happen!

Unless Rex Grossman beats him out, in which case Quinn should just call it quits altogether.

Start working at home with Google! It's by-far the best job I've had. Last Wednesday I got a brand new BMW since getting a check for $6474 this - 4 weeks past. I began this 8-months ago and immediately was bringing home at least $77 per hour. I work through this link, go to tech tab for work detail

Dave just ruined my embargo. I was not going to watch NFL this season. I didn't watch the first week. I don't even know who the Dolphins selected in the NFL draft, i dont even know if mike wallace is still on the team, and i heard the dolphins got Knowshon Moreno (whooptie doo) .... but now that Brady Quinn is on Miami .... i've been grinning and cracking up laughing non stop for a straight hour. I'm gonna have to watch preseason week 2. I hope Quinn gets 3 quarters of action. Now, i just need Tim Tebow to get on a team, and i'll be back in the NFL full time. Jared Lorenzen also needs to be on a preseason team. A note of warning ... in October, i will be posting my "Pink Conspiracy" video probably every week.
