$5.5 million cap hit
Greg Jennings was a big mistake for the Dolphins. This is a Joe Philbin player by far. Jennings was supposed to play a support role to the offense but his contract was far too big for a receiver who has fallen far from his peak. Jennings has been so awful this season that he almost has as many drops as catches. On the season Jennings has a whopping 13 receptions for 122 yards.
Release or retain?
This is the easiest decision any coach or manager has to make. Jennings is no longer the player he used to be and has almost no value to the team anymore. The Dolphins will eat about $1 million in dead money should they release him but will save $4 million and there is no way that Jennings comes close to warranting that kind of salary.
