Dolphins Sign Former Troubled OL J.D. Quinn

The Dolphins have signed undrafted offensive lineman J.D. Quinn, whose brief career at Oklahoma led to NCAA sanction. “Fortunately Miami is willing to give him a second chance,” his agent, Cameron Foster, said Saturday.

Quinn took part in the rookie camp last weekend and the Dolphins are expected to announce the signing Monday. Quinn and quarterback Rhett Bomar were dismissed by the Sooners in August 2006 after breaking NCAA rules by taking money for work they didn’t perform at a Norman, Oklahoma car dealership.

NCAA sanctions included forcing the Sooners to give up their eight wins in 2005, but an appeals committee restored them. Quinn transferred to the University of Montana and also encountered troubles there. He was arrested in Missoula in July 2007 and in May 2008 on charges of drunken driving.

“J.D. is a changed man the past 12 months,” Foster said. “He has seen his stock value fall and realized that he’s his own worst enemy. He has gone to AA meetings and realized his problem and been humbled.”
