According to recently filed reports from Pro Football Talk, Dolphins quarterback Chad Pennington tore his ACL playing basketball earlier this offseason. It is difficult to envision Pennington rebounding from yet another devastating injury, especially after he suffered back-to-back season ending shoulder injuries in '09 and '10.
But even before this news broke, Pennington was a long shot to remain with the Dolphins. He will be 35 this summer, and his durability has gradually worsened. Though he will likely head into retirement, there are a handful of other Dolphins veterans who might soon hit the waiver wire.
