Prolific pretty-boy QB Trent Chief signed with Miami yesterday, escaping a youth movement in Kansas City that likely would have consigned him to the bench. The Dolphins will likely attempt to jettison last year's pricey signal-calling acquisition, Daunte Culpepper, who will make $5.5 million in 2007 and unsurprisingly would like to stay put.

Green will be rejoined with new Miami coach Cam Cameron, who was the quarterbacks coach in Washington when Green was a third-stringer there. He has thrown for over 20,000 yards in five-and-a-half seasons. However, he cautioned, "You're not going to find anyone to replace Dan Marino." (More NFL stories.)
