DAVIE, Fla. (AP) -The Miami Dolphins drew another name from the past of Bill Parcells on Thursday, working out former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Quincy Carter.
But Dolphins coach Tony Sparano said the workout is merely an evaluation of Carter, an arena league quarterback who started for the Cowboys and New York Jets before poor play and drug-related arrests ended his NFL career.
``We're just going to keep turning over, flipping over stones and bringing in a lot of people,'' Sparano said. ``And it probably won't change for two to three years. Quincy is here and we will have a workout with Quincy.''
Sparano said he's been pleased with all three quarterbacks currently on the roster - Josh McCown, John Beck and rookie Chad Henne - and Carter's workout is not a sign the team wants to move away from them.
``I have been pleased with the quarterbacks, and I think the competition is really good,'' Sparano said. ``It just means we have to make sure we're doing our due diligence on what's available.''
Carter was dismissed by the Cowboys in 2004 - a team coached by Parcells, now vice president of football operations for Miami. Carter's understanding of the Dolphins' offense would seem to make him a good fit in Miami, which has struggled to get consistent quarterback play in training camp.
