DAVIE, Fla. (AP) — A sheepish Chad Henne recalls attempting the sort of desperation pass a young college quarterback would try: Under pressure, on his heels, heaving a prayer to a tall teammate in the end zone.

More than once, Braylon Edwards came down with the ball for a Michigan touchdown.

The same play might be in the Miami Dolphins' playbook, now that Brandon Marshall's on the roster. He's the Dolphins' most talented receiver since Irving Fryar more than 15 years ago, easing Henne's burden going into his first full season as an NFL starter. It begins Sunday at Buffalo.

Henne knows how to make the most of a big target. In 2004, when he was a freshman and Edwards was a senior at Michigan, they connected for 15 touchdowns.
