Source: Dolphins want to work out JaMarcus Russell, others

The Dolphins are exploring other quarterback options now because Chad Pennington is expected to be out for the remainder of the season, and one of the names prominent on Miami's list of replacements is former first overall selection JaMarcus Russell, a team source said Sunday night.

No workout has been set up yet. But Russell is on Miami's list and the team is expected to reach out to him in the next 24 hours. Russell recently had a tryout with the Redskins. He weighed in excess of 260 pounds when he worked out with the Redskins two week ago despite the fact he is being mentored by former NBA player and coach John Lucas.

The Dolphins have other QBs also on the list and will go through those names as well. The team, obviously, can also look at quarterbacks currently on other team's practice squads.

Other QBs that will be under consideration are Patrick Ramsey, Todd Bouman, Sean Canfield, and Brian St. Pierre. This is obviously not a complete list as the Dolphins aren't calling reporters and sharing their intentions.

Ramsey, it must be remembered is represented by Jimmy Sexton. Sexton represents Bill Parcells and Tony Sparano. Hmmm.

ESPN is reporting former Broncos QB Tom Brandstater will be among the players Miami will try out.

No, Pat White is not an option. Yet.

PAT WHITE .ANY ONE ??

Makes sense. The options are few and far between. If he doesn't pan out at QB maybe we could move him to OL.

Please tell me you are kidding.

Not a JM fan...lets get a QB who wants to play football...not just have a strong arm

NO! He is terrible. How about Jeff Garcia?

Like a Jeff Garcia

Gotta go for Russell.

I hear he can throw the ball 60 yards from his knees...

While drinking Nyquil.

God no...if this is the case, Ireland is indeed the second coming of Rick Spielman and we are screwed for the next decade.

Losman, Russell,,,,F#C$ THAT!!!!! Have marshall become the third string QB if were that desperate!!!!!

Armando is just messin with ya.Right Armando.......ARMANDO.

Pat White??? You must be crazy,aLoco.

Did Rex Grossman just get cut recently?

I think I'd go with Kosar or Marino before DuhMarcus!!!!

ROFLMAO!!! JAMARCUS RUSSELL???? We loose a defensive lineman? Old man Marino would be better than Russell.

Dear Mr. Salguero

Please tell me your joking....please

Jamarcus Russel. You guys thought Benching Henne was desperate. I know it's just a workout, but C'mon. Jeff Garcia would be a guy that we should take a serious look at. A prove proffesional that could fill in if we needed, This is a big problemo, if the Henne rumors are true

Jamarcus Russell?!! Sounds like the only real significant injury has come from the front office. Surely they must of had some sort of head injury to suggest J.Russell.

Dear Mr. Salguero

Now would be a good time to sell gold and buy Nyquil

NOW IT'S OFFICIAL ;;


THIEGPEN IS THE ATARTER FOR THURSDAY

HENNE UNDER TREATMENT THE WHOLE WEEK ,

CHAD.P GOD SPEED ...

whats wrong with thigpen?! the most exciting this anemic offense has looked in the last several games has been when he was qb'ing

Jeff Garcia injured his ankle today. Plus hes got a contract in the UFL. These are dark times for Miami Dolphins Football my friends, we were only good QB play from being a solid contender, but now total uncertainty . What should we do in the upcoming off season? STAY STRONG, WE'LL GET THROUGH IT! This Franchise needs a spark at center. Too much inconsistency in the most important spot in your roster. It seems that since Dan Marino retired, we have not been able to get it right.

lmao lmao lmao really?? you gotta be kidding me i cant even say his name without lmao

Did someone say shoulder injury history.
You could of had me at hello.
Oh well, there is always Daunte Culpepper,err, I mean Jamrcus Russell.

Jamarcus Russel = NFL'S ROSSANNE ARNOLD!!!!

Just say NO to Drugs!!!!!

season's over folks

sorry

we need to draft a qb in the 1st round

NOW WE CAN ASK THIS QUESTION ......WAS THE SIGNING OF CHAD.P A MALE PRACTICE ON THE PART OF THE TUNA REGIME ?

The boys are spanking my Giants

i'd like to refresh everyones memory of last years steeler game. henne was out with eye inj. and pat white got knocked out in the 4Q. thigpen comes in 4thQ with score 27-10 pitt. he throws 2 td passes to get it to27-24; then he is driving again throwing a pass to ginn at the 2 yd line. ryan clark shoulda drew a flag because he's lying on ginns back before the ball arrives. ginn argues but clark is awarded an INT to stop the drive. pitt goes on long drive to run out the clock. thig throws last sec desparation pass that was int. damn good comeback for a guy with no practice reps. with 1st team ever. spark.

thigpen is better than russell!!!! i hope they have other prospects in mind....not sure about russell....who can advise?

Once again the jinx of being the only undefeated team in the NFL history as well as the jinx of having enjoyed the play from arguably the best QB in NFL history has struck again. We only needed good QB play. All the pieces are there, Solid O-Line, experienced running backs, talented wide receivers, solid, talented and young defense, and experience all around. Damn. Really hurts.

thigpen CAN do it.

Maybe Henning can get Kurt Warner to unretire......

I don't believe Miami is trying to get a 3 string QB here guy. (if that is what you are thinking) Everything I am reading shows Henne will likely be done for the season also... We need a Backup AND a 3rd string QB if Henne is done...

Greg, look up Thigpen's stats from last year. He had one touchdown and two picks.

Thigpen is better than Russell.

How can u not see before this game that Thigpen was possibly the best one of the three. If ur one of the ones who thought he was the 3rd best, All i gotta say is....CMON MAAN!!!!!

anyone they bring in will be behind Tyler Thigpen

we all like penne but he should have never been resigned unless we plan to stay with the "dink and dunk". as an observer of camp practices a casual fan could tell his arm was totally "gone". shot! he couldnt throw a ball even 15 yds with any zip at all. it was sad. sparano/ireland are sleeping when it comes to personell. really.

am i the only one that sees they're trying out russel to be a backup to thigpen? Hello are you guys idiots? Quit freaking out, ireland is not that stupid.

This is what WalterFootball shows as available Free agent QBs... mind you there are other guys... But these are your guys with experience...

Brett Ratliff, QB, Browns. Age: 25.
Josh McCown, QB, Panthers. Age: 31.
# Chris Simms, QB, Titans. Age: 30.
# Gibran Hamdan (RFA), QB, Bills. Age: 29.
Matt Gutierrez, QB, Bears. Age: 26.
JaMarcus Russell, QB, Raiders. Age: 25.
Jeff Garcia, QB, Eagles. Age: 40.

That pretty much sums up the available names most would know... Pretty sad ass bunch!

GO THIGPEN... This IS YOUR DAY!!!

Things i would take over Dumbfarcus Russel,

Joe Namath
Dead Henning
Dead Hennings Wife
Wildplaykiller
Joe Shmoe
Piece of Floss
Wets Season Tickets
0-16 SEASON
Six Hours of Aloco singing
Armando

Greg: we saw Pennington in the pre-season game and he looked fine, made that nice pass to Marshall

D4D,

Agree with you.

They are looking for depth.

Unfortunately, they are forced to scour the depths.

haha superPHIN add rex ryan and his ugly ass brother to that list. I hope to see them both dolphin QBs before russell.

Stop debating & get behind Thiggy:

NFL RedZone Channel reporting Henne out w/ season-ending injury.

Dear Mr. Salguero

The Odd couple

On November 14, Jamarcus Russel was asked to remove himself from his place of work. That request came from his coach.

Deep down, he knew he was right, but he also knew that someday, he would return to football.

With nowhere else to go, he appeared at the home of the Miami Dolphins Dan Henning.

Sometime earlier, Hennigs team Carolina Panthers had thrown him out, requesting that he never return.

Can two unwanted men share a Team and Purple drank without driving each other crazy?

Soiled :)

They should get Jeff Garcia for now...le Pat White be the 3 if Henne is done...

This team is snake-bit any news on other injuries? Thigpen can be good but they have other issues.

I watched Pennington warm up and he was throwing the ball great. It did not have the Henne Zip..Of Course.. but from the Club seats it had plenty of velocity to get it done... he laid some beautiful passes to Marshall in practice... But, Alas, He was a glass rod in a bull ring... Much to do all week about NOTHING!... including all the Bile and backwash about Moss... What a POS that loser is! 1 catch 17yards... 2 games -vs- Miami... Moss is AWESOME!!

u must b fucn kiddin...dat sorry supa bum JA-WASHED-UP HUSSELL...ABSOLUTELY NO, NO, NO..."WE" WIN WITH THIGPEN-DIS YOUNG GUN AINT NUTT'N BUT DA TRUTH...HE'S DA MAN N DA ANSWER 4 DEM DOLPHINS...WE DO NOT NEED ANOTHA MILLION DOLLA BUSTED, DISGUSTED BUM SOURING DAT MIAMI DOLPHINS TEAM...AN ABSOLUTE MISTAKE 2 EVEN THINK ABOUT JA-WASHED-UP HUSSELL...(INSANE IDEA).

zach, i kinda remember that throw to marshall. i remember it being "a wounded duck" jumpball that marshall grabbed. believe me as much as i like penne his arm was toast.

PLEASE DON'T BRING FAT LAZY ..JARMARCUS R...Also is Richie igonito the weak link in our oline ..He's the one that let that lineman hit Henne..As for thigpen i hope he's start\s for the rest of the year ..And they see if he can be the guy next year.If not Henne will be there..As for Pennighton poor guy to go out this way..lifes not fair!

im Really sorry about Henne but i always thought he was a IFFY type QBs.
Let me tell All u so called Pro Football Freaks!
Im not the smartest man in the world But If ur not sure if a qb is great after 2-3 yrs then He aint! Henne, U are the Weakest Link, Goodbye.
Penny realy should consider Retiring.
Thanx For Everything u did for Us.Truely from the heart.
Thigpen In, Dolphins Win.
Bears Dont even have updated Film on Thigpen. Fellas, Were moving to 6-4 Thursday Night!
Go Fins!

yup---Incognito whiffed on the d-lineman who rolled up on Henne.

blackcerote, penne made an extra 3 million because he started this one game. too bad he's hurt though.

Thigpen should be the man in Miami... he can play. I want a Thigpen Jersy!!!

DYING BREED says, "Anyone reporting Henne out for season as of now are liars. Didnt you guys read the blog topic where Henne himself says he's scheduled for a mri at 6:00 AM tomorrow morning?
Cant be ruled out until the mri results!!!"

Quit smokin' yo' crack. When you have MULTIPLE sources reporting the same thing, you can bet the report is true. Henne is done for the year.

YOU JUST BEEN JOE MOMMA'D, HO!

WOW!! you guys act as if Russell would start the next game or the rest of the season!!! if you guys think Henne is the answer, you are FOOLISH!!!!!!!!!!!!!! the guy is a robot in the pocket, never look B. Marshall's way!! by the reactions of several players(marshall and fasano for sure) they didnt look to pleased with Henne!! i know Marshall was about to exploded!!! you cant have a guy QB who top DBs(Ed Reed)say is easy to read, that alone tells me he dont look off DBs and is locked on one target!! this coming from a guy who started his whole college career at a major college(never beat ohio st. that says a lot to me)!! we gotta roll with Thigpen! more mobile and seems to have a better feel for the game at this point(and he came off the bench)!! if im to live with Henne's bone head mistakes and robotic nature in the pocket, i can live with Thigpen occasional int too!! yes you take a look at Russell what could it hurt!!!!!!!

Patrick Ramsey? Is he available to be the backup? Anybody other than Russell.

here's a name for you guys: Joey Harrington!! haha
