Pennington On IR, Dolphins trade for Chiefs QB Tyler Thigpen (Alex)
The Miami Dolphins put Chad Pennington on IR and traded for Kansas City's 3rd string QB for a undisclosed draft pic. The Dolphins second string QB Chad Henne will start instead of Thigpen but the Dolphins use the Wildcat formation alot so Thigpen may start when the play the Wildcat. Thigpen has alot better stats then Henne but Henne has never started in a game. Last year the Chiefs starting QB was injured then the second string QB was injured and Thigpen played most of the season. He threw 420 times and completed 230 of them(that's good considering that his receivers dropped 50% of them) . He had 18 TD's and 12 INT's. He threw for 2,608 yards. He ran for 386 yards and 3 TD's.
