Greg Jennings WR MIA 1 month ago

Jennings' (elbow) deal with the Dolphins is for two years and $8 million, the Sun Sentinel reports.

While the signing of Jennings does not preclude the Dolphins adding wideout depth early in the upcoming NFL draft, it would appear to lessen the team's urgency to do so. In any case, Jennings -- who will turn 32 on Sept.21 -- adds valuable experience to a Miami receiving corps that also rosters Jarvis Landry, Kenny Stills and Rishard Matthews. On the heels of a 2014 season in which he caught 59 passes for 742 yards and six touchdowns for the Vikings, Jennings could end up with some deep league utility this year, but it seems unlikely that he'll approach the production that he enjoyed in his heyday with the Packers.

The Dolphins are slated to sign Jennings, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports.

Jennings, who caught 59 passes for 742 yards and six touchdowns with the Vikings last season, adds depth and experience to a Miami wideout corps that was previously headed by Kenny Stills and Jarvis Landry. The 31-year-old Jennings will thus be reunited in Miami with head coach Philbin, who was the wideout's offensive coordinator while the two were both with the Packers. While Jennings could carve out some deep league utility this year, given that he'll have to compete with Stills, Landry and TE Jordan Cameron for passing targets in the Miami offense, Jennings figures to be hard-pressed to approach the numbers that he put up during his prime years with Green Bay.

Jennings (elbow) is visiting the Jaguars on Monday, the Florida Times-Union reports.

While it's unclear if the Jaguars will land Jennings, if the 31-year-old wideout does join the team, he'll provide a veteran complement to second-year pass-catchers Allen Robinson, Allen Hurns and Marqise Lee. Jennings is coming off a 2014 campaign in which he caught 59 passes for 742 yards and six TDs for the Vikings.

Jennings is meeting with the Dolphins on Tuesday, NFL.com reports.

The Dolphins recently hosted Michael Crabtree, who is now visiting with the Raiders. If Jennings ultimately signs with his former offensive coordinator in Miami, he'll likely be behind all of Kenny Stills, Jarvis Landry and Jordan Cameron in the pecking order for targets. The Dolphins' interest in veterans indicates that they aren't content with Rishard Matthews as the No. 3 wide receiver. It makes sense to target a receiver who's more comfortable on the outside, given that Landry typically plays out of the slot in three-wide sets.

Jennings (elbow) visited the Panthers on Saturday, the Charlotte Observer reports.

Though Jennings -- who was released by the Vikings earlier this month -- wasn't immediately signed by the Panthers, if he ends up doing so, he'd be a solid addition to a Carolina receiving corps that could use some added depth beyond the likes of Kelvin Benjamin and Jerricho Cotchery.

Jennings, who was released by the Vikings over the weekend, underwent minor elbow surgery this offseason, NFL.com reports.

Jennings' release from the Vikings was listed with a "failed physical" designation, which stems from his previous elbow procedure. While Jennings is expected to be fine moving forward, the Vikings are still responsible for his rehab costs. With that situation clarified, Jennings should now garner interest from teams looking to add a veteran pass-catcher with plenty of starting experience.

Jennings was cut by Minnesota on Saturday.

The acquisition of Mike Wallace led the Vikings to cut the aging Jennings, who is only two years removed from signing a five-year, $47.5 million deal with Minnesota. Jennings is good enough to contribute somewhere in the NFL, but it might not be in a starting role with age 32 arriving in September. He caught 59 passes for 742 yards and six touchdowns last year.

Jennings (hamstring) is active for Sunday's game against Chicago.

Jennings hasn't topped 60 yards in a game since Week 9, but the Bears have one of the weakest pass defenses in the league, and Jennings does have four touchdowns in his last five games. The hamstring injury is not a concern.

Jennings (hamstring) is probable for Sunday's game against Chicago.

Jennings doesn't have a high ceiling these days, but he has a great matchup this week and should see a steady target count with Jarius Wright (back) and Kyle Rudolph (ankle) highly questionable.

Jennings (hamstring) was limited in practice Wednesday, the Vikings' official site reports.

For the second week in a row, Jennings has been capped in Wednesday's iteration of drills, as he's likely been afforded a veteran's respite. Meanwhile, he's certainly clicked with rookie quarterback Teddy Bridgewater, as they've connected for a touchdown in four of the last five contests. With an exploitable matchup on tap Sunday versus the Bears, who have allowed 13.6 YPC and three scores to WR in the past three games, Jennings' touchdown streak could extend to three outings.
