Dolphins Will "Definitely" Add Veteran QB, But Considering Terrelle Pryor

Terrelle Pryor won't be playing in Sun Life Stadium when the Miami Hurricanes take on the Ohio State Buckeyes, but will he be in the stadium a lot more as a member of the Dolphins? The star QB will enter the supplemental draft instead of playing another season with the scandal-ridden Buckeyes, adding another intriguing wrinkle to the Dolphins' search for a quarterback. However, general manager Jeff Ireland says the team will very likely sign a veteran QB for next season (assuming there is one). Though, ol' Tyler Thigpen is still in play as well.

From The Sun-Sentinel:

Ireland stressed re-signing Tyler Thigpen remains an option, especially if he's a restricted free agent under the next CBA rules, but he again stressed the Dolphins "will add a veteran quarterback" even if Thigpen's brought back....
There are a number of veteran QBs who will be floating around in free agency once this whole labor dispute gets straightened out. The latest Dolphins rumors centered around Vince Young. Though, there's also been buzz about Carson Palmer. The names of Kevin Kolb, Donovan McNabb, Kyle Orton, and Alex Smith have also been bounced around.

The Dolphins weren't able to nab a quality quarterback in the draft, but their hopes for a fresh new draftee might not be completely shattered.

Ireland says has begun "the process of evaluating an Ohio State player." He can't mention names, but everyone knows that means Pryor.
