Dolphins Re-Signed QB Chad Pennington

NFL NewsContributor IMarch 5, 2010

Dolphins re-signed QB Chad Pennington to a one-year, $2.5 million contract.

The deal includes a "trade bonus" that would add $1.515M to Pennington's 2010 pay should he be dealt away before October's trade deadline. The 34-year-old is recovering from the third throwing-shoulder surgery of his career, but the Fins value Pennington as a veteran of OC Dan Henning's system and mentor to Chad Henne. Henne will not face competition to start.
