MIAMI (AP) -Chad Pennington, cut by the New York Jets after they signed Brett Favre, has signed with the Miami Dolphins.
The 32-year-old Pennington, expected to be the starting quarterback for Miami, which finished 1-15 last season, agreed to a deal Friday worth $11.5 million over two years.
Pennington, a first-round pick of New York in 2000, ranks first in NFL history among quarterbacks with at least 1,500 attempts with a 65.6 completion percentage. He was often recognized as being a leader in the huddle and an intelligent field general, but was dogged throughout his time in New York for his lack of arm strength.
He was the NFL's comeback player in the year in 2006 after undergoing surgery on his shoulder.
