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.

Jennings (hamstring) had three catches on three targets for 56 yards and a touchdown Sunday against the Dolphins.

Despite failing to reach 60 receiving yards in a game since before the team's Week 10 bye, Jennings has four touchdowns in his last five games, as quarterback Teddy Bridgewater continues to look his way in the red zone. Jennings has a good shot to continue his fine play, as the Vikings will face off against the Bears in Week 17, a team that is tied for the most passing touchdowns allowed this season.

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

Owners gambling on Jennings in recent weeks have benefitted from his string of touchdowns (three in his last four games), but it's never wise to bank on touchdowns, especially when it comes to wide receivers. Although Miami has struggled a bit against the pass recently, it still ranks fourth in the NFL in passing yards allowed, so this is far from an ideal matchup for Jennings.
