MIAMI (CBSMiami.com) – The Miami Dolphins have a need for a veteran quarterback to push starter Chad Henne and they may be turning to the Pacific Northwest to fill that void.

According to the Seattle Times, incumbent Seahawks quarterback Matt Hasselbeck has told the team he will not re-sign and instead become an unrestricted free agent.
