The Miami Dolphins signed Greg Jennings to a two year, $8 million contract on Wednesday evening. Jennings was a highly-coveted veteran receiver on the free agent market, having previously visited the New Orleans Saints and Carolina Panthers in addition to the Dolphins.
Jennings, 31, was originally drafted by the Green Bay Packers in the second round of the 2006 draft. After seven years with the Packers, he signed with the Vikings, where he has played for the past two seasons. He was one of the NFL’s top receivers from 2008-2010, averaging more than 1200 yards per season and being named to two Pro Bowls.
With 552 career receptions for 8,083 yards and 63 touchdowns, Jennings instantly becomes the most experienced player in the Dolphins young receiving corps. Jennings also has some familiarity with the Dolphins system, having played for Joe Philbin from 2007-2011 when Philbin served as the offensive coordinator for the Packers.
Jennings adds another reliable option to the revamped Dolphins receiving corps. Due to his age, he is not considered a long-term answer, and we fully expect the Dolphins to add another wide receiver in next week’s draft.
