The last quarterback to take the Miami Dolphins to the playoffs returned to Davie, where he's serving as a "guest coach" for a week.

Chad Pennington, the son of a high school coach, has flirted with the idea of coaching in his post-playing career. He spent last offseason mentoring draft eligible quarterbacks for TEST Academy, and it appears he's sticking his toe into the coaching world of the NFL.

"It's great to have him here," Dolphins coach Joe Philbin said. "At various times we've had guest coaches here and we'll continue to do that. It's good for the players and staff to hear a different perspective on things."

Pennington will be with the team all week. The hope is that Pennington, who is statistically the NFL's most accurate quarterbacks of all-time, can help Ryan Tannehill speed up his maturation process.

"Sharing my experiences a little bit," Pennington said.

At this point it is uncertain how long Pennington will work with the Dolphins. Last year former NFL cornerback Al Harris started out as a guest coach and spent all season with the team. He's now a secondary coach in Kansas City.

Pennington recently moved his family to Kentucky and does TV work with FOX.

Jamar Taylor signs his rookie deal

Dolphins cornerback Jamar Taylor, the second-round pick from Boise State, reached an agreement on his four-year contract worth $3.6 million, becoming the sixth of nine draftee to sign his rookie deal.

Taylor, who had hernia surgery earlier this month, will sit out this week's work, but says there's a chance he could be cleared to practice during the minicamp that starts on June 11.

"I'm not sure, that's up to the trainers," he said. "We'll see where it's at in a couple of weeks."

Taylor, who participated in the May rookie minicamp, said he's been a fast healer in the past, and expects to be cleared for training camp.
