Dolphins sign QB Beck, two other rookies

MIAMI (July 23, 2007) -- Quarterback John Beck signed a four-year contract with the Miami Dolphins. The team's other top pick, Ted Ginn Jr., remained unsigned a day before the first scheduled rookie practice.

Beck, a second-round pick, threw for 79 touchdowns and 11,021 yards at BYU. He was the first quarterback selected by Miami in the first two rounds since Dan Marino in 1983.

Beck's agent, Justin Schulman, said his client agreed to the deal late Sunday, but declined to release its terms.

Ginn, an Ohio State receiver and Miami's first-round choice, remained unsigned. Ginn's agent did not return a phone message.

The Dolphins also signed two other players: center Drew Mormino, a sixth-round pick, who agreed to a four-year deal, and undrafted free agent Brian Soi, a 6-3, 315-pound defensive tackle.

Miami's other second-round pick, center Samson Satele, signed a four-year, $2.89 million contract on July 19.

Rookies are scheduled to begin practice July 24 and team training camp starts July 28.
