The 31-year-old former Pro Bowler could replace the former Dolphins receiver who just took his spot in Minnesota.
WR Michael Crabtree turns down $3m Miami Dolphins deal, stays unsigned
Minnesota Vikings release veteran WR Greg Jennings after just two seasons
BIG TRADE! Minnesota Vikings acquire WR Mike Wallace from Miami Dolphins
The Miami Dolphins are hosting two-time Pro Bowl WR Greg Jennings for a workout, with the hopes that Jennings could revive his career and replace departed WR Mike Wallace.
NFL.com insider Ian Rapoport reported that the 31-year-old receiver who made two Pro Bowls with the Green Bay Packers will meet with Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin and executive vice president Mike Tannenbaum to discuss a possible contract with the team.
Jennings played seven seasons with the Green Bay Packers from 2006 to 2012, recording three straight 1,000+ yard seasons from 2008 to 2010 and winning Super Bowl XLV with the Packers in 2010. In 2013 he joined the Minnesota Vikings for a massive contract but never lived up to it. He was released from the Vikings after two seasons in which he totaled 127 passes for 1,546 yards and 10 TDs. He finished as the Vikings’ leading receiver in both seasons.
The Dolphins are coming off an unsuccessful attempt to land former 49ers WR Michael Crabtree, who reportedly turned down a $3 million offer from the team because it wasn’t enough money for him.
At the end of the 2014 season, the Dolphins traded leading WR Mike Wallace to the Vikings, allowed TE Charles Clay to sign an offer sheet with the Buffalo Bills and released veteran receiver Brian Hartline. The Dolphins acquired New Orleans Saints leading receiver Kenny Stills to replace Wallace as their No. 1 receiver but are still missing a second starter.
