His pro career started with the Washington Redskins, where he was selected to one Pro Bowl team in 1996, but may be better remembered by an incident in which he injured himself for several games by ramming his head into a wall in celebration of a touchdown. The Redskins drafted him in the seventh round of the 1994 NFL Draft. He won the starting job in lieu first round pick Heath Shuler, and served as the starter until 1998. In 1999 he played for the Detroit Lions where he backed up Charlie Batch. Frerotte stepped in for the injured Batch and started for the Lions in the playoffs. In Frerotte's first playoff start, he was defeated by the Redskins. In 2000 he started for the Denver Broncos after Brian Griese was injured. He remained a Broncos backup until the end of the 2001 NFL season. He joined the Cincinnati Bengals in 2002 quickly losing the starting job. In 2003 and 2004 Frerotte backed up Daunte Culpepper and did a great job commanding the offense when he played, earning him a chance to work for the Dolphins starting job in 2005. He guided the Dolphins to a 9-7 record, starting 15 games and throwing for 18 touchdowns against 13 interceptions, including 2 touchdowns in an upset victory over the Denver Broncos in week 1, one of only 3 losses for the Broncos. He completed 52% of his passes and finished the season with a 71.9 quarterback rating.
