Dolphins bring back Pennington on one-year deal

Free-agent QB Chad Pennington and the Dolphins reached a one-year deal that pays him $4.2 million if he’s traded and $5.75 millionĀ if he starts, according to a source familiar with the situation.

Pennington, who’s coming off shoulder surgery, will earn $2.5 million as a backup to Chad Henne, which is his expected role. Should things change, those escalation triggers are in place to increase the former starter’s compensation.

Pennington has spent two seasons with the Dolphins after spending eight years with the AFC East rival Jets.
