Greg Jennings Wouldn't Mind Playing In Miami

The Miami Dolphins are still a few weeks away from making big changes to their roster.  They can’t openly say they want this player, that player, or another.  That is not the case for players who can lobby, volley, and talk freely about any team and any price tag they want.  Such is the case for WR Greg Jennings who told media that he “wouldn’t mind” playing in Miami.

Jennings is no stranger to the Dolphins.  Joe Philbin has coached Jennings every year of his career sans one.  Last year when Philbin signed on to lead the Dolphins out of mediocrity.  The fit seems logical.  Jennings needs a new home figuratively speaking.  Although he did put his Wisconsin home on the market.  The Dolphins need a WR with star potential and Jennings has proven he is more than capable of being a big play threat.  But would he be that in Miami as well?

For starters, Jennings is no stranger to young QB’s.  His time in Green Bay was with both the Super Bowl winning and league MVP QB Aaron Rodgers as well as the young QB who stepped in for Brett Favre.  Jennings is no stranger to the ups and downs of a young QB’s development.  The fact he knows and understands both the system and the HC philosophy makes him a natural fit for the Dolphins.

Age however is not on his side.  At 29, Jennings is approaching the wrong side of 30 and last year missed the 2012 season due to a groin injury that he was not able to come back from.  While the Dolphins could use a talent like Jennings, there has to be some caution taken.  At least a back-up plan in place if Jennings were to get hurt again.  Jennings won’t command Mike Wallace or Percy Harvin type figures but he won’t be a cheap either.

The Dolphins will do their due diligence with Jennings and with a reported 30 million plus to spend this off-season, Jennings may only be one of the WR’s they add this off-season.

    That cap space is over 40 million,not 30.. and I like the idea of Jennings in UFA and drafting Patterson in the first, bye bye Hartline..

  • Jimmy Sessions

    I would love to see Miami trade and get Harvin and draft a speedy outside burner. Harvin can line up anywhere from HB to WR1 and be very effective. Harvin is a match up nightmare for defenses, more so than Bush. Harvin was a beast at Florida and didn’t miss a beat when he entered the NFL. He was a big part of Favre having one of the best seasons of his career when with the Vikings. Their are a few issues to consider, such as the migranes and (percieved to be) disgruntled. But I believe those issues will clear up quickly when he gets back home in Florida. The migranes haven’t caused him to miss playing time only some practice time. He’s a gamer and will fight through those challenges to be successful.

    Jennings would fit in Miami nicely for the next 3 years, hope he comes our way at a decent price and can stay healthy
