DAVIE, Fla. (AP) -- Miami Dolphins quarterback Chad Henne says he was stung by the cries from some fans at an open training camp practice earlier this week.
Henne, the presumed starter, heard some fans chanting that they wanted the team to trade for Denver's Kyle Orton. Dolphins coach Tony Sparano defended Henne, saying those jeers "really make me sick."
Henne says he appreciated Sparano standing up for him, noting Thursday "that's how this team works."
Henne also says he believes he's competing every day to keep the starting job he held last season.
