Agent Drew Rosenhaus fancies himself as something of a clairvoyant. And for those who doubt his credentials, he's only too happy to pat himself on the back for correctly predicting that Edgerrin James would be selected over Ricky Williams in the 1999 draft, and that despite a reconstructed knee Willis McGahee would be the first back off the board this year. Now Rosenhaus is focusing his powers of prognostication on the Miami Dolphins quarterbacking situation.

Rosenhaus is betting that Brian Griese will land with the Dolphins once he is released by the Denver Broncos. Of course, everyone else is, too. But Rosenhaus is going against the grain once more by proclaiming that Griese will not only wind up in South Florida, but that he'll be the starter by midseason.

''This is just my opinion, not anything anybody told me,'' Rosenhaus said on a local television show. ``Jay is a good player, but Brian is not coming here to be a backup. Brian is too good to keep on the bench.''
