DAVIE, Fla. -- Unsigned rookie quarterback Chad Henne, the only Dolphins draft pick not under contract, isn't taking part in this morning's camp-opening practice despite a prediction from his agent the University of Michigan product would be on the field.

At least part of the hold up is what's taking place in Green Bay.

Henne was the fourth quarterback and the 57th player overall taken in the draft. Louisville quarterback Brian Brohm was the 56th selection of the Packers and also remains unsigned.

Henne and Brohm are represented by the same agent, Justin Schulman, who's surely trying to maximize the money for both of his clients by waiting for the best offer from two teams.

And what becomes of Brett Favre could be having an impact on how the Packers are handling Brohm. The Packers were the only team to draft two quarterbacks, taking Matt Flynn out of Louisiana State in the seventh round. Flynn signed this week.

I'll have more on Henne's status when coach Tony Sparano talks after the morning practice.
