    Pennington re-signing with the Dolphins

    The anticipated re-signing of Chad Pennington with the Miami Dolphins has been snagged by the veteran quarterback's desire to have a no-trade clause in his contract, according to team and league sources.
    Pennington and the Dolphins were expected to reach an agreement on a one-year $2.5 million contract Thursday afternoon before the stumbling block, according to another team interested in the quarterback.


    Pennington, who is recovering well from his third shoulder surgery, has willingly agreed to serve as Miami's No. 3 quarterback, mentoring Chad Henne and Tyler Thigpen, as well as Pat White, whose role seems unclear for 2010. Henne is the starter, but the team is impressed with Thigpen, hoping he can reduce his turnovers. White was used on a limited basis in some wildcat and option plays.
    However, because Pennington has a young family, he does not want to move this year, and was holding out for assurances he would not be traded. The Dolphins refused to limit their "business options" on a potential trade, sources said.


    Pennington was still exploring other possibilities, among them his former team, the Jets, as well as the Rams and the Redskins.

    I would imagine Pennington will drop his "no trade" clause.
