Griese Considers Options.

While the two sides might be close on some financial elements, a wide disparity on their philosophies involving an incentives package has kept the Miami Dolphins from reaching a contract agreement with Brian Griese, and the agent for the former Denver quarterback may soon ramp up negotiations with other suitors.

"We haven't really moved things forward," agent Ralph Cindrich told ESPN.com on Wednesday. "I know there are people who maybe think I'm overplaying my hand when I say we have two other teams who are interested. But, believe me, it's no (bluff). We said all along the Dolphins were the frontrunners, but we're not making progress there."

Things are to the point now, in fact, where Griese might actually visit with officials from one of the other suitors, teams Cindrich which has arduously declined to identify.

Full Story.

yeah, i don't see a whole of other teams in the running for the great GRIESE lottery. That's a joke. He pretty much has to sign with the dolphins or go to arena league or something.

I agree...he's not a bad #2 or #3 QB on a team, but will not start again

oh i think he would be a great backup or even still a starter. But at this point in the year and with as many teams hurting with the salary cap I really don't see anybody besides the dolphins dishing out any cash for him
