I would have rather it have been B Johnson

 

 

 

 

Veteran quarterback Gus Frerotte reportedly has canceled a trip to Denver and has agreed to sign a contract with the Dolphins to back up A.J. Feeley.

 

According to ESPN.com, the 11-year veteran decided Monday that negotiations were close enough with the Dolphins that he would allow his agent, Marvin Demoff, to work out the final details of a contract.

 

Frerotte, 33, worked with new Dolphins offensive coordinator Scott Linehan in Minnesota the past two seasons. The unrestricted free agent attempted only one pass last season as Daunte Culpepper's backup.

 

He was scheduled to visit with the Broncos, his former team, Monday. Frerotte started seven games for Denver (six regular season, one playoff) in place of injured Brian Griese in 2000. He played in four games (one start) in 2001.

 

Frerotte was named to the Pro Bowl in 1996, the only season in which he started every game. That year, he completed 270 of 470 passes (57.4 percent) for 3,453 yards with 12 touchdowns and 11 interceptions.

 

Frerotte, who also has played for Detroit and Cincinnati, will be joining his sixth team. He started 46 games for the Redskins from 1994-98.

Funny that you mention Brad Johnson. He's in Minnesota. He played in 4 games in '98 before Cunningham replaced him. So if he returns he missed a Viking career without Randy by four games according to my calcualations.
