Free agent Greg Jennings voiced his desire to return to the Vikings.
"I left [GM] Rick [Spielman] a voicemail," Jennings said. "I told [them], I'm waiting on you guys. I miss being there. You appreciate something more when it’s taken away from you." Jennings spent the 2013 and 2014 seasons in Minnesota before being released and signed by the Dolphins, where he lasted one year before getting cut last month. His market has been deadly quiet. The soon-to-be 33-year-old is hanging on by a thread. He has no game left in the tank. Apr 6 - 1:14 PM

Dolphins released WR Greg Jennings.

It's an expected move from the cap-strapped Dolphins. Jennings was a non-factor his only season in Miami, posting a 19/208/1 line. The Dolphins save $4 million from his release. Jarvis Landry, DeVante Parker, and Kenny Stills will return as Miami's top three receivers.
Mar 5 - 7:07 PM

The Palm Beach Post does not expect Greg Jennings back with the Dolphins next season.

Jennings recorded just 19 catches for 208 yards and one score in the first season of a two-year, $8 million deal. Miami can save $4 million against the cap by releasing the veteran this offseason. It is a no-brainer for the cap-strapped Dolphins.
Feb 4 - 10:39 AM

Greg Jennings caught 4-of-5 targets for 74 yards Week 17 against the Patriots.

Signed to a two-year, $8 million contract in April, Jennings was a non-factor most of the season. His 5 targets this week were actually tied for his second most of the season, and he had seven games without any receptions. He finished the year with 19 catches for 208 yards and one score. Miami can save $4 million against the 2016 cap by releasing Jennings, which they almost certainly will do.
Jan 3 - 6:57 PM

Greg Jennings caught both of his targets for 37 yards in the Dolphins' Week 7 win over the Texans.

The veteran continues to run as the Dolphins' No. 4 receiver and isn't worth monitoring outside of extremely-deep formats. The 37 yards is a season-best.

Greg Jennings secured his lone target for 13 yards in the Dolphins' Week 6 win over the Titans.

Demoted out of the starting lineup in favor of Kenny Stills, Jennings' lone catch came when Stills took a breather on the sideline after absorbing a big hit. Jennings has no fantasy value in 16-team leagues.
Sun, Oct 18, 2015 04:25:00 PM

Greg Jennings reeled in three of seven targets for 15 yards in the Dolphins' Week 4 loss to the Jets.

He made a nice sideline catch on a running throw from Ryan Tannehill early in the first half but wasn’t much of a factor after that. With only five catches in four games this year, Jennings is no longer a fantasy option.
Sun, Oct 4, 2015 02:42:00 PM

Greg Jennings couldn't catch any of his five targets in the Dolphins' Week 2 loss to the Jaguars.

Instead of improving on last week's dud (three catches for 29 yards), Jennings delivered an even worse performance this time out, burning fantasy owners with a goose egg in Week 2. It's clear Ryan Tannehill hasn't let Jennings inside his circle of trust and we're not sure that he ever will. A breakout game seems unlikely for Jennings next week against Buffalo.
Sun, Sep 20, 2015 08:50:00 PM

Greg Jennings caught 3-of-3 targets for 29 yards in the Dolphins' Week 1 win over the Redskins.

Jennings will be a fixture in three-receiver sets, but shouldn't catch more than 3-5 weekly passes. Although a big name from the past, Jennings isn't really worth a roster spot in re-draft leagues.
Sun, Sep 13, 2015 05:56:00 PM

Greg Jennings (elbow) is sitting out Saturday's preseason game.

Jarvis Landry, Kenny Stills, and Rishard Matthews will start in three-wide sets. Jennings should be considered day to day.
Sat, Aug 22, 2015 06:58:00 PM

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.
Wed, Aug 19, 2015 10:06:00 AM

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.
Tue, May 26, 2015 11:42:00 AM

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.
Fri, Apr 24, 2015 12:50:00 AM

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.
