As first reported by Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald and Andrew Abramson of the Palm Beach Post, the Miami Dolphins are bringing in veteran wide receiver Greg Jennings for a free agent visit.
Jennings, who will turn 32 in September, was released by the Minnesota Vikings very shortly after they acquired wide receiver Mike Wallace and a seventh-round draft pick from the Miami Dolphins in exchange for a fifth-round draft pick. He had previously signed a 5-year, $45 million dollar contract to be the Vikings "consolation prize."
Jennings is a much more seasoned wide receiver and brings more leadership qualities than Wallace did, in exchange for raw speed which Jennings doesn't possess. And while Jennings would be a better choice for leadership, even he isn't perfect as his effort in games has also come into question, not to mention there are rumors that Jennings and head coach Joe Philbin are not exactly fans of each other.
The Dolphins previously brought in Michael Crabtree and the possibility of him signing is still very much open, despite reports of him turning down a contract that was previously offered to him. The Dolphins appear to simply be covering all bases by bringing in Jennings as well.
Jennings recently took to Twitter to play an April Fools prank on the world by announcing that he had signed with a team without anyone's knowledge and claimed to be announcing where he had signed at around midnight. Of course, it turned out to be a prank, which frustrated several fans who were hoping to hear their team had brought in the veteran wideout.
Jennings is a wily veteran who would be a good fit for this style of offense, the only question is whether or not Jennings is willing to take what the Dolphins offer him. Crabtree didn't and left Miami to go visit other teams. Will Jennings snub Miami's offer as well?
