Well, that was short-lived... as likely is Pennington's career moving forward...  He was barely hit.  It's a shame.  His shoulder is just never going to be right.  From "The REAL Feed":

I would agree!!!!   They needed a 3rd RB so it was a smart decision.

We suck this year. Slaton is a solid veteran, I like the pickup... They/we have been looking for a solid #3 all off season.

I still don't see them winning more than 5-6 games anyways...if that.

Overall he has no fantasy value.

What the hell are the Dolphins going to do at QB?  They lost out on Peyton Manning and would not pay Matt Flynn what he thought he was worth.   So - now they have a choice of Alex Smith, drafting a QB, or getting Tebow or Hasselbeck if they are released.   Any the above options is not terribly pretty.

Veteran wide receiver Chad Ochocinco signed a one-year deal Monday with the Miami Dolphins, according to sources with knowledge of the situation.


Given the lack of talent at wideout in Miami, he may wind up a starter, but, his greatest asset I think the Dolphins are thinking, he brings the Patriots playbook with him.  That said, he could not handle it while he was there. [smiley=dunce.gif] How is he going to handle it from afar? ;)

ROFLMAO!!!!!!!!! Thank F***ING goodness. I didn't like this signing to start with. I would rather have Moss or T.O. Maybe we can get Jennings next year since he is a Free Agent after this season. Or go trade for/sign Wallace and call Pittsburg's bluff.

Even though he was clearly the #1 WR on the team, we are better off. With his attitude, drama, and overall assholeness off the property and out of our locker room, it is addition by subtraction, IMO.

So long CHAD OCHOLOSER. Enjoy retirement.
The Fins will struggle enough this season without nuckleheads being in the mix too.

Miami Dolphins RB Arian Foster announces retirement (http://www.upi.com/Sports_News/2016/10/25/Miami-Dolphins-RB-Arian-Foster-announces-retirement/8911477369876/)
United Press International: Sports (24.10.2016 23:32)
The Sports Xchange Miami Dolphins running back Arian Foster announced his retirement, effective immediately, on Monday after eight NFL seasons.


I think Jay Ajayi reminded Foster of himself when he was a young, truly NFL-caliber running back.
