The Dolphins continue to eye free agent wideouts, and will bring another one in for a visit today, reports Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald. According to Salguero, former Viking Greg Jennings is paying a visit to the team.
The Dolphins are in the market for some veteran help at wideout after parting ways with Mike Wallace, Brian Hartline, and Brandon Gibson via trade or release so far this offseason. The receiving corps is currently led by youngsters Jarvis Landry and Kenny Stills, who have plenty of talent, but only three combined years of NFL experience between them.
Miami previously brought in veteran free agent Michael Crabtree for a visit, and there were conflicting reports on whether or not the team made him a contract offer in the neighborhood of $3MM. Either way, it doesn’t appear the ex-Niner will be joining the Dolphins, so perhaps Jennings will be a better fit.
If he reaches an agreement with Miami, Jennings would be replacing the player who replaced him in Minnesota — Jennings was released by the Vikings after they acquired Wallace from the Dolphins. The 31-year-old, who has been linked to the Panthers and Jaguars since becoming a free agent, caught just 59 balls for 742 yards during his final season in Minnesota, prompting the team to cut him just two years into a massive five-year contract.
