Legedu Naanee WR MIA 11 Months
Free agent WRs Legedu Naanee and Seyi Ajirotutu will try out for the Browns this week.
They're participating in the Browns' voluntary workouts on a tryout basis. Both played for new Browns OC Norv Turner in San Diego. Naanee and Ajirotutu combined for just 196 snaps on offense last season, and are longshots to earn roster spots.

Patriots worked out free agent WR Legedu Naanee on Tuesday.
The work out reportedly went well, but no contract offer is forthcoming. Naanee will always look like an intriguing size/speed prospect in workouts, but his football skills and instincts are found wanting once the tape is turned on.

Dolphins released WR Legedu Naanee and DL Andre Fluellen and waived/injured LB Mike Rivera.
Naanee was hyped incessantly by one beat writer throughout training camp, but he's been arguably the least productive receiver in the NFL on a per-snap basis the past two seasons. He was targeted on a pair of Ryan Tannehill interceptions in Week 1 and produced a comical fumble at Arizona last week. Naanee simply isn't skilled enough to be an asset at wide receiver. Fluellen's release suggests DT Tony McDaniel (leg) is now healthy.

Legedu Naanee played just 27 snaps in the Dolphins' Week 1 loss to the Texans.
Naanee isn't long for the starting gig and he knows it. "I haven't really been on the same page, in the flow of the game, really," Naanee said. "It's pretty evident that I need to make plays." Davone Bess and Brian Hartline are the top-two wideouts in Miami right now.

Legedu Naanee secured just one of his five targets in the Dolphins' third preseason game Friday night, gaining eight yards.
We've seen Naanee talked up by one South Florida media outlet in particular, but he's long been a thoroughly ineffective NFL receiver in actual games, and this preseason has been no different. The journeyman-caliber wideout has two catches for 20 yards on seven targets through three exhibition contests. The Dolphins aren't exactly setting up rookie quarterback Ryan Tannehill for success.

Legedu Naanee is listed as a starting wideout on the Dolphins' first preseason depth chart.
Chad Johnson and Davone Bess are the listed as the other starters. It's not a surprise considering Brian Hartline (appendectomy, calf) has missed virtually all of the offseason program and training camp. Naanee, whose best asset is blocking, shouldn't be on fantasy owners' radar even if Hartline continues to sit.

Legedu Naanee enters camp among the Dolphins' top-four wideouts.
Per the Miami Herald, Brian Hartline, Davone Bess, Chad Ochocinco and Naanee are on top of the depth chart for now. That leaves the likes of Roberto Wallace, Marlon Moore, Julius Pruitt and Clyde Gates battling for one or two roster spots. New head coach Joe Philbin reportedly "really likes" Naanee, but fantasy owners should be really low on the possession receiver/blocker.

The Dolphins hosted WR Legedu Naanee for a free agent visit on Monday.
Naanee was one of the least effective starting receivers in football last season with Carolina, eventually losing his job to Brandon LaFell. He'd add no more than a veteran, possession-type presence to a poor Miami receiver corps.
