DAVIE - Oronde Gadsden, the Dolphins' top receiver in 2000 and 2001, re-signed with the team Friday.

Gadsden signed a one-year deal with a base salary of $530,000, the veteran minimum.

"It's been a roller coaster of emotions, definitely," said Gadsden, who had been an unrestricted free agent and sought a longer, more-lucrative deal. "We did what we could.

"It's not a total loss. I'm looking forward to playing some football."

Gadsden played in only six games last season, catching 16 passes for 228 yards, because of a torn ligament in his left wrist.

Gadsden has started all 36 games he has appeared in for the Dolphins during the past three seasons. He caught 56 passes in 2000 and 55 in 2001.

BRONOCS: Former safety Mike Harden was sentenced to six years in prison for defrauding about 15 people of $64,500.

49ERS: Former Nebraska quarterback Scott Frost signed a one-year deal. The team plans to use him at safety, where he played three seasons with the Jets.

JAGUARS: Offensive tackle Sammy Williams signed a one-year, $555,000 contract. Williams has played in 30 games with 14 starts. Last season, he played in 12 games at both tackle positions, starting seven, for San Diego.

PACKERS: Adam Tate, the second-leading rusher for Frankfurt in NFL Europe, signed. He gained 207 yards on 53 carries with two touchdowns. He also caught 10 passes for 87 yards. Also, defensive end Joe Johnson waived his right to an arraignment and pleaded innocent to a marijuana possession charge. No trial date has been set.

SEAHAWKS: Kicker Josh Brown, a seventh-round pick, signed a three-year, $948,500 deal.
