Rosenfels returns

Sage Rosenfels, the Dolphins' third-string quarterback for the past three seasons has signed a one-year contract to return to Miami. Rosenfels was an unrestricted free agent, and he had been expected to shop his services in hopes of getting a chance for more playing time.

His re-signing with the Dolphins would seem to be an indication there wasn't much interest in Rosenfels as the No. 2 quarterback.

The one-year deal will give Rosenfels the chance to become an unrestricted free agent again next spring, but his value won't be different unless he gets a chance to play some more this season.

Rosenfels got the start in last year's regular season finale at Baltimore and started off with a 76-yard touchdown pass to Chris Chambers, but he struggled from then on and finished 16-of-38 for 264 yards with three interceptions, including one returned for a touchdown.

Barring a major surprise, Rosenfels again will be the No. 3 quarterback this season behind A.J. Feeley and whoever the Dolphins bring in.

The team already has entertained Minnesota free agent Gus Frerotte and was expected to meet with former Tampa Bay starter Brad Johnson on Friday.
