The Miami Dolphins have come to terms with the release of former second-round pick John Beck.

John Beck was the 40th overall selection in the 2007 draft.

Coming out of Brigham Young University, the Dolphins had high expectations for Beck. He was supposed to be the next best thing for a franchise that was in a current funk, or so it seemed.

He was the BYU Cougars' MVP during the 2005 season. Beck was also the Mountain West Conference Offensive Player of the Year.

John, believe it or not, started out his college career as a 22-year-old, but that didn't stop him from being one of the better quarterbacks in all of college football.

Beck was a bust from the very beginning. He only managed to throw for one touchdown in his rookie season. He started in four games during that year.

The decision to release John isn't all that surprising. Miami drafted Pat White in the 2009 draft, and they already have Chad Pennington and Chad Henne.

John will likely find a job elsewhere in the very near future. He's a good athlete, but never again will he be a starter.
