At the end of the 2010 season, it looked like the Dolphins would be on the market for a replacement for quarterback Chad Henne, through the draft or free agency. But the draft has come and gone and free agency may not start any time soon, and with each passing day Henne gets a little closer to keeping the job.
Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald takes a look at the Dolphins’ quarterback situation and concludes that it’s looking increasingly likely that Henne will get another season as the starter for the Dolphins.
The reason is quite simple: There just aren’t any other good options. Veterans like Kevin Kolb and Donovan McNabb are expected to have other teams willing to give up more to acquire them than the Dolphins are willing to give up. Other veterans who might be available, like Brady Quinn or Kellen Clemens, aren’t necessarily any better than Henne.
It’s not exactly a ringing endorsement of Henne to say he’ll remain the starter by default. But it’s probably an accurate assessment of the Dolphins’ quarterback situation.
