With the report that Chad Pennington is likely to re-sign with the Dolphins possibly as early as today, one has to wonder if his signing would make Tyler Thigpen available via trade.
Pennington would serve as Chad Henne’s backup with Pat White presumably as the designated Wildcat QB. I can’t see the Dolphins jettisoning a guy that was their second-round pick.
Thigpen meanwhile was a signal caller they acquired last year for an undisclosed draft pick when Pennington was lost for the season. I’ve got to imagine they’re not married to the guy and would listen to trade offers.
Thigpen had Bills head coach Chan Gailey as his offensive coordinator in Kansas City in 2008, when Gailey changed the offense to suit Thigpen going to a spread formation with four and five wide receivers a good amount of the time.
