The Miami Dolphins want Trent Green back at QB?

The two-time Pro Bowler has suffered serious concussions the last two seasons. From the Palm Beach Post-

The new Dolphins front office wants concussion-prone quarterback Trent Green to come back for 2008.

Dolphins football operations chief Bill Parcells and General Manager Jeff Ireland have reached out to Green to express their interest in his return.

“There have been conversations about Trent returning, pending his health issues,” Green’s agent, Jim Steiner, said Monday night. “The conversations are just getting started, and they will be ongoing for quite some time.

Green has “got a huge passion for the game, and he’s passing his medical tests 100 percent,” Steiner said.

But Green still hasn’t made up his mind whether he wants to resume a career that has been waylaid by concussions in each of the past two seasons.

Green, who wants to enter broadcasting once he retires, spent the playoffs commentating for ESPN and the NFL Network and appeared to be having fun.

To review what I think about Green and the Dolphins situation at QB.

1- Green should retire rather than risk his long-term health.
2- Miami can use another QB but one who can actually play and who won’t cost the team further valuable draft picks.
3- The starting QB job for the 2008 Dolphins should be John Beck’s to lose.
4- I don’t think the Dolphins should use the #1 pick on a QB. If the team traded down, maybe.
