MIAMI -- Nose tackle Jason Ferguson has been re-signed by the Dolphins, even though he faces a suspension for the first eight games of the 2010 season.

The Dolphins announced the signing Tuesday in a news release that made no reference to Ferguson's suspension for violating the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing substances.

At 35, Ferguson improves the Dolphins' roster depth, but they remain in the market for a starter at the position.

Ferguson, acquired by the Dolphins in a 2008 trade with the Dallas Cowboys, has 128 career starts. He was sidelined in November by a season-ending quadriceps injury that required surgery and has contemplated retirement.
