The Miami Dolphins dumped a veteran backup quarterback of their own today. Jason LaCanfora of the NFL Network reported that the Phins released Sage Rosenfels today. While the football world waits to see where Donovan McNabb lands after being released, Rosenfels could be another option for teams looking to add experience to their depth chart.
Earlier in the week, Peter King confirmed a report from a Houston radio station that the Texans could be interested in Rosenfels. After losing Matt Leinart, who replaced Matt Schaub, the Texans are expected to be in the market for help at quarterback. Rosenfels knows Gary Kubiak's offense, having spent three seasons in Houston. If the Texans did sign him, he could still be a backup to T.J. Yates, a spot currently held by Kellen Clemens.
The Dolphins had the quarterback on the non-football injury list. The Dolphins picked up Rosenfels in October, but a blood infection that caused the Giants to release him resurfaced after three weeks.
