FOX can wait.  And possibly not for long.

Quarterback Brady Quinn, who recently took at job handling college and pro football for FOX Sports, may not be available when football season begins.  According to Jeff Darlington of NFL Network, Quinn has signed with the Dolphins.

The move puts Quinn on the team that famously passed on him in the 2007 draft with the ninth overall pick, opting instead for Ted Ginn.  Quinn slid to the Browns at No. 22 that year.

It appeared he’d slide out of the NFL permanently.  But the Dolphins have needs at a minimum for a camp arm.  After working out Quinn, John Skelton, and Rex Grossman, the Dolphins opted to sign Quinn.

Quinn will know by August 30 whether he has won a spot on the 53-man roster.

The Dolphins become the seventh NFL team by which he has been employed.  After starting off in Cleveland, Quinn has played for the Broncos, Chiefs, Seahawks, Jets, and Rams.
