Carter comes out of retirement to join Dolphins
coach Dave Wannstedt said. ``It's probably going to take him a couple of weeks to learn the offense and get in playing shape. How quick all that happens will determine how much he plays.''

``Even if he's just on the sideline hanging out, he'll be a big plus,'' linebacker Zach Thomas said. ``He'll bring some leadership and teach our guys some things.''

WR Cris Carter signs with Dolphins; WR Gadsden on IR
Thanks to some prodding by Dan Marino, Cris Carter is headed to the Miami Dolphins

"When I told Danny that Miami called he went ballistic," Carter said at a news conference on Monday. "He said 'you just have to do it. You can still play.' I said, 'Dan, you're crazy.' But the more I thought about it, I really missed playing. And HBO supported me and told me they would continue to pay me even if I signed with Miami."
