The Miami Dolphins reportedly have bolstered their receiving corps.
Jennings is coming off two somewhat productive seasons with the Minnesota Vikings and caught 59 passes for 742 yards to go along with six touchdowns last season. Jennings’ best seasons came in Green Bay, where he was highly effective while catching passes from Brett Favre and then Aaron Rodgers.
Jennings will be reunited with Miami head coach Joe Philbin, who was the offensive coordinator in Green Bay for part of his Packers tenure. Philbin was the offensive coordinator during the two best seasons of Jennings’ career, consecutive Pro Bowl years in 2010 and 2011.
The Dolphins also got a pretty good look at Jennings late last season. He scored a touchdown and totaled three receptions for 56 yards in a Dolphins’ Week 16 win.
The 31-year-old will give the Dolphins a veteran presence at wideout, which Miami hopes coincides with quarterback Ryan Tannehill entering his prime. Jennings, Jarvis Landry and Mike Wallace should give the Dolphins a pretty formidable group of receivers. Miami also traded for wide receiver Kenny Stills this offseason and signed tight end Jordan Cameron.
