The Miami Herald's Armando Salguero reports the Dolphins coaches "love" Greg Jennings.

Salguero fully expects Jennings to make the team and be a top-four receiver. The soon-to-be 32-year-old has impressed onlookers with his route running, leadership, and professionalism, which is a plus in a very young receiving corps. It's a sign this could be a true committee approach at receiver behind Jarvis Landry, with Jennings, Kenny Stills, and DeVante Parker filling certain roles and not providing much fantasy consistency.

According to the Miami Herald, Greg Jennings "could be anywhere from second to fourth" in the Dolphins' wide receiver pecking order.

Miami beat writers have Jarvis Landry penciled in as the Dolphins' nominal No. 1 receiver. Behind him, Jennings, Kenny Stills, and eventually first-round pick DeVante Parker (foot surgery) will vie for snaps and targets. Ryan Tannehill recently talked up Jennings' crisp route running. "It’s unbelievable how he can break corners down, with his savviness of how to get guys leaning." In an ideal world, Parker (X), Stills (Z), and Landry (slot) would emerge as Miami's top-three wideouts, with Jennings as the primary backup to each position.

Greg Jennings, Kenny Stills and Jarvis Landry were the Dolphins' first-team wideouts as OTAs opened Tuesday.

DeVante Parker is getting the rookie treatment as he'll mix in slowly. Ultimately, we'd expect Jennings to be the odd man out here in favor of the first-round pick. But he was given an $8 million contract that included $3 million guaranteed, so he's not going away quietly. It's a reminder that this pass-catching corps -- one that also includes TE Jordan Cameron -- is stacked. There will be heavy competition for snaps and targets.

Greg Jennings' two-year, $8 million deal with the Dolphins included a $3 million signing bonus.

This isn't a late-career flier contract. The $3 million bonus assures Jennings of a roster spot, and a $4 million year-one commitment suggests the Fins are counting on Jennings for a relatively significant role. The Jennings signing also may discourage the Dolphins from using a high pick at wide receiver, which would be good news for Jarvis Landry, Kenny Stills, and Jordan Cameron's fantasy values.

New Dolphins WR Greg Jennings says he'd "love" to run more routes outside after spending the majority of his time in the slot the past two seasons.

Per Pro Football Focus, 66.8 percent of Jennings' routes came in the slot last season. The slot is Jarvis Landry's home in Miami, so Jennings is going to get his wish. However, it should only stand to make him less efficient. Jennings averaged 64 catches over the past two years. We doubt he comes close to that in 2015.

The Dolphins still hope to come away with one of the top-nine receivers in next week's draft.

Signing a slow-footed 32-year-old in Greg Jennings won't change the Dolphins' draft plans very much. The Miami Herald says they'll try to trade back in the first round, but are going to add more wideout talent at some point to a depth chart that now reads Jarvis Landry, Kenny Stills, Jennings. The Herald says the Dolphins' top nine receiver prospects are (in no particular order) Amari Cooper, Kevin White, DeVante Parker, Breshad Perriman, Nelson Agholor, Phillip Dorsett, Dorial Green-Beckham, Devin Smith and Sammie Coates.

Dolphins signed WR Greg Jennings to a two-year, $8 million contract.

Jennings gives Miami a veteran presence behind Jarvis Landry and Kenny Stills. He has strong ties to HC Joe Philbin, who spent six years with Jennings in Green Bay. Jennings has been in major decline the last three seasons and turns 32 in September. The Dolphins will likely use Jennings on the outside in three-wide sets, with Jarvis Landry remaining in the slot. Jennings should be a candidate for 45-55 catches on the Dolphins, but is unlikely to reemerge as a significant fantasy contributor.

Free agent Greg Jennings left his Saints visit without a contract.

It'll be his last visit, according to the New Orleans Advocate's Nick Underhill. In addition to the Saints, the Ravens, Panthers, and Jaguars remain interested in Jennings. He also visited the Dolphins after his release from the Vikings. Jennings isn't going to get more than about $3 million on a one-year contract.
Apr 17 - 12:48 PM

Free agent WR Greg Jennings is expected to visit the Saints.

At least per's Ian Rapoport, that was "the plan" following Jennings' Monday visit with the Jaguars. A deal with the Jags does not appear imminent. The Saints are down a man at receiver after trading away Kenny Stills, but it's unlikely they'd view a 31-year-old Jennings as his sole replacement.
Apr 14 - 3:45 PM

Free agent WR Greg Jennings is visiting the Jaguars Monday.

The Panthers and Dolphins have previously kicked the tires on Jennings, but neither offered him a contract. Now he takes his aging, slow and smallish body to Jacksonville, where Allen Robinson and Marqise Lee are atop the depth chart. Perhaps the Jags will see value in bringing in a veteran to mentor their extremely youthful receiving corps.
Apr 13 - 10:05 AM

Free agent Greg Jennings left his Dolphins visit without a contract.

Per the Miami Herald, "the door is certainly open for one down the road." The Dolphins need to inject some experience into their youthful receiver corps, but they're going to do it at their price.
Apr 7 - 6:38 PM

Free agent WR Greg Jennings is visiting the Dolphins Tuesday.

Jennings would provide veteran depth behind youthful starters Jarvis Landry and Kenny Stills. He also has a strong tie to Miami in the form of head coach Joe Philbin, who spent six years with Jennings in Green Bay (2006-11). Familiarity would be about the only thing exciting about a Jennings signing, as he's entering his age-32 season with rapidly declining long and short-area speed.
Apr 7 - 8:14 AM

The Dolphins haven't ruled out signing free agent WR Greg Jennings.

The Dolphins remain in the market for a veteran behind youthful starters Jarvis Landry and Kenny Stills. They might re-engage with Michael Crabtree, who turned down a $3 million offer a couple weeks ago. Or they could settle for Jennings, who knows Joe Philbin from their time together in Green Bay. We wouldn't expect the market for either to heat up until after the draft.
Apr 6 - 10:08 AM

After announcing he'd found a new team on Twitter on Tuesday, free agent Greg Jennings ultimately signed with nobody.

It was Jennings' lame attempt at an April Fools' Day joke. Much like Jennings' free-agent "market," there's nothing to see here. Old, slow, and small, nobody is beating down the door to offer Jennings a starting job.
