Sage Rosenfels is looking for work

New York Giants quarterback  Sage Rosenfels passes against the Carolina Panthers  in a NFL pre-season football game in Charlotte North Carolina Reuters

Miami is looking for a quarterback.  And a quarterback that first came up with the Dolphins is now looking for work.

Alex Marvez of FoxSports.com writes that Sage Rosenfels wants back into the NFL after a “mysterious blood infection” plagued him in August.

The Giants released Rosenfels from injured reserve after placing him on the season-ending list before the season. Rosenfels is now a free agent and looking for work.

We’ve always thought of Rosenfels as one of the better backups in the league. He had a strong showing early this preseason and would make sense for a team like Miami that is looking for depth.

    Didn’t Ron Mexico have some sort of blood infection?

  2. shawon0meter says: Oct 5, 2011 11:36 PM

    He’d be the best QB in Miami

    The Rosencopter is a great backup and built perfectly for spot duty. Just don’t trust him to hold a lead with 5 minutes left in a game…

    Comeback player of the year, thumb up for yes down for no way

  5. The Phantom Stranger says: Oct 5, 2011 11:40 PM

    He would have been the perfect transition quarterback for the Vikings this year. Too bad Chilly gave him and our punt returner to the Giants for a 5th-round pick last year.

    I said this immediately after he was released – Dolphins.

    I have always liked Sage. He’s been great with his opportunities. If I’m Miami I’m all over him.

  7. trbowman says: Oct 5, 2011 11:48 PM

    On a side note, is there something that we don’t know about Troy Smith? How did he not get signed by an NFL team?

    You’re telling me Jake Delolhomme and Trentative Edwards are better?

  8. fijabbersman345 says: Oct 5, 2011 11:48 PM

    Sage Rosenfels is a genius! Stuck in a back-up role? Snag yourself a “mysterious blood infection” and hit the free market!

  9. suckleague says: Oct 5, 2011 11:50 PM

    Depth? How about a team that’s looking for Firth like Indy?

  10. realdraftgm says: Oct 5, 2011 11:58 PM

    Yeah he wants to go to Miami but the truth is they knwo Matt Moore can get the job done they just want to Teebow him and not give him a chance because he will do better than Henne and make them look stupid for starting Henne. Sparano started the idiot no playing Henne which was stupid when Moore is clearly the better player but Ireland is the bigger idiot that must go. Put Sparano with a good g.m. and he may just work out.

    We could use him in Minnesota, I remember watching him in camp at Mankato stringing a few long play-action passes to none other than elite Twitter warrior and part time Vikings receiver Bernard Berrian.

    Donovan can probably be had for a 6th or 7th rounder at this point…sounds like a no-brainer Jeff Ireland move to me.

  12. rtl1984 says: Oct 6, 2011 12:05 AM

    They should sign him as a running back. Betcha he could get between the tackles better than Bush.

  13. favreforever says: Oct 6, 2011 1:02 AM

    Don’t get carried away. Just because there are Rosenfels on your mother’s side.

  14. dbrnw says: Oct 6, 2011 1:17 AM

    Sage can be a quality starter in this league.

    Miami would do well to grab him.

  15. drumnw says: Oct 6, 2011 1:32 AM

    i always liked him when he was with miami…id welcome him back…

  16. thespeaker08 says: Oct 6, 2011 1:34 AM

    His signing would be signs of Miami’s commitment to being a bottom dweller.

  17. Mr. Wright 212 says: Oct 6, 2011 1:34 AM

    The Sagecopter is back.

  18. apooster says: Oct 6, 2011 1:41 AM

    If it wasn’t for that idiot Childress, Rosenfels would still be in Minnesota.

    Every Viking fan knows that he beat out T-Jack, but Childress wouldn’t let anyone beat out his little pet.

    I would easily take him in Minnesota over McBad

  19. rogerbrad says: Oct 6, 2011 2:00 AM

    Miami needs all the help they can get. Who knows with Sage???

  20. duncanthecat says: Oct 6, 2011 2:17 AM

    So are half of us thanks to Obama!

    Sage Rosenfels did not start his career with the Dolphins.

    Helicopter

  23. zinn22 says: Oct 6, 2011 4:09 AM

    He would be a huge upgrade for the Jets. But then again who would not be an upgrade over Sanchez.

  24. jjrs89 says: Oct 6, 2011 4:17 AM

    GET TO THA CHOPPA!

  25. tatum064 says: Oct 6, 2011 4:26 AM

    Couldnt hurt. would put the ridiculous “Carolina connection” rumor of Delhomme-Matt Moore to rest. David Garrard would make sense…..wouldnt Tebow be available by the trade deadline?

  26. mclovin07 says: Oct 6, 2011 5:13 AM

    Que up the cut McNabb, sign Rosenfels comments in 3, 2, 1….

    And the sad part is, it might not be such a bad move…

  27. bigred12 says: Oct 6, 2011 6:26 AM

    Rosen-copter!

    @duncanthecat dont you mean thanks to George W. Bush? 8 years of incompetence cant be cleaned up in 3 1/2 years my friend. Obama has done a good job with the constant opposition and non cooperation of congress and senate

  36. klunge says: Oct 6, 2011 9:31 AM

    Easily the best unemployed QB on the market right now. Just because his name is kind of unmanly doesn’t mean he can’t ball!

    Not to get all political or anything, but I thought the Democrats had control of the House and Senate for Obama’s first two years and they passed everything he wanted them to. Wasn’t that supposed to fix things? At least, that’s what we were told.

    Why is Garrard still getting dissed?

  39. deadmanwalking47 says: Oct 6, 2011 9:39 AM

    Rosenfels played with the redskins and was then traded to the dolphins.
    george bush did great until he lied and got a lot of innocent people kids by invading iraq out of blood lust and revenge! he became a criminal when that happened!

    Too funny. Do you have any stories that don’t paint your team in a completely incompetent light?

  41. sj39 says: Oct 6, 2011 9:44 AM

    ogbobbydeas, Bush is gone, you have to let it go. Obama has kept zero promises and has been a total failure. Really, I did not think we could have a worse president than Bush but you see what you get when you elect a junior senator (with no experience in anything but talking) from the most politically corrupt state in the Union. A total failure. No get back to talking football.

  42. foreverengland says: Oct 6, 2011 9:58 AM

    Sage Rosenfels did not “come up with the Dolphins.” He was drafted by the Redskins in 2001 and traded to Miami the next year.

    Sage Rosenfels is looking for work
    ———————————————-

    I’ve got a car that needs to be washed and some leaves that need raking – How’s $50 sound, Sage?

  50. phinfan says: Oct 6, 2011 1:50 PM

    Poor Sage never got his chance to shine as #1. Give it to him. He’s won countless games for us in Miami, and I believe Houston as well.
