Free agent WRs Legedu Naanee and Seyi Ajirotutu will try out for the Browns this week.
They're participating in the Browns' voluntary workouts on a tryout basis. Both played for new Browns OC Norv Turner in San Diego. Naanee and Ajirotutu combined for just 196 snaps on offense last season, and are longshots to earn roster spots. Tue, Apr 16, 2013 01:16:00 PM

Patriots worked out free agent WR Legedu Naanee on Tuesday.

The work out reportedly went well, but no contract offer is forthcoming. Naanee will always look like an intriguing size/speed prospect in workouts, but his football skills and instincts are found wanting once the tape is turned on.
Tue, Oct 9, 2012 02:40:00 PM

Dolphins released WR Legedu Naanee and DL Andre Fluellen and waived/injured LB Mike Rivera.

Naanee was hyped incessantly by one beat writer throughout training camp, but he's been arguably the least productive receiver in the NFL on a per-snap basis the past two seasons. He was targeted on a pair of Ryan Tannehill interceptions in Week 1 and produced a comical fumble at Arizona last week. Naanee simply isn't skilled enough to be an asset at wide receiver. Fluellen's release suggests DT Tony McDaniel (leg) is now healthy.
Tue, Oct 2, 2012 03:57:00 PM

Legedu Naanee played just 27 snaps in the Dolphins' Week 1 loss to the Texans.

Naanee isn't long for the starting gig and he knows it. "I haven't really been on the same page, in the flow of the game, really," Naanee said. "It's pretty evident that I need to make plays." Davone Bess and Brian Hartline are the top-two wideouts in Miami right now.
Thu, Sep 13, 2012 10:33:00 AM

Legedu Naanee was the Dolphins' Week 1 starter at split end, but was targeted just twice and secured neither.

Both of his targets were intercepted by Texans defenders. Naanee has long been and remains off the radar in fantasy leagues, and he's not helping his rookie quarterback's cause, either.
Sun, Sep 9, 2012 05:57:00 PM

Legedu Naanee secured just one of his five targets in the Dolphins' third preseason game Friday night, gaining eight yards.

We've seen Naanee talked up by one South Florida media outlet in particular, but he's long been a thoroughly ineffective NFL receiver in actual games, and this preseason has been no different. The journeyman-caliber wideout has two catches for 20 yards on seven targets through three exhibition contests. The Dolphins aren't exactly setting up rookie quarterback Ryan Tannehill for success.
Sat, Aug 25, 2012 12:08:00 AM

Legedu Naanee is listed as a starting wideout on the Dolphins' first preseason depth chart.

Chad Johnson and Davone Bess are the listed as the other starters. It's not a surprise considering Brian Hartline (appendectomy, calf) has missed virtually all of the offseason program and training camp. Naanee, whose best asset is blocking, shouldn't be on fantasy owners' radar even if Hartline continues to sit.
Mon, Aug 6, 2012 12:24:00 PM

Legedu Naanee enters camp among the Dolphins' top-four wideouts.

Per the Miami Herald, Brian Hartline, Davone Bess, Chad Ochocinco and Naanee are on top of the depth chart for now. That leaves the likes of Roberto Wallace, Marlon Moore, Julius Pruitt and Clyde Gates battling for one or two roster spots. New head coach Joe Philbin reportedly "really likes" Naanee, but fantasy owners should be really low on the possession receiver/blocker.
Mon, Jul 23, 2012 09:04:00 AM

Dolphins WR Legedu Naanee is fully recovered from the broken foot that ended his season in late December.

Naanee participated in the Dolphins' workouts on Tuesday. He's not expected to play a major role in Joe Philbin's offense this season.
Tue, Apr 17, 2012 06:49:00 PM

Dolphins signed WR Legedu Naanee, formerly of the Panthers, to a one-year contract.

Signed by Carolina last August after he was allowed to walk by the Chargers, Naanee caught a career-high 44 passes for 467 yards and a touchdown but lost his starting job to Brandon LaFell down the stretch. A far better blocker than receiver, Naanee brings a slot/possession skill set to a team that already has Brian Hartline and Davone Bess. Five months shy of his 29th birthday, Naanee will do little or nothing to remedy one of the league's worst receiver corps, and is off the radar in fantasy football leagues.

The Dolphins hosted WR Legedu Naanee for a free agent visit on Monday.

Naanee was one of the least effective starting receivers in football last season with Carolina, eventually losing his job to Brandon LaFell. He'd add no more than a veteran, possession-type presence to a poor Miami receiver corps.
Mon, Apr 16, 2012 06:09:00 PM

The Charlotte Observer doesn't expect the Panthers to make re-signing free agent Legedu Naanee more than a "medium" priority.

Naanee caught a career high 44 passes for 467 yards during his first year in Carolina, but did little to disprove the notion that he's a better blocker than receiver. He graded out as one of the league's worst pass catchers by Pro Football Focus. Wherever he ends up, it will be on the cheap.
Mon, Feb 13, 2012 11:12:00 AM

Panthers placed WR Legedu Naanee (broken foot) on injured reserve, ending his season.

Naanee is the 18th Panthers player to go on I.R. this year, a franchise record. Appreciated more for his blocking ability than receiving, Naanee finishes the season with a career-high 44 receptions, 467 yards, and one touchdown. He's a free agent in 2012.
Fri, Dec 30, 2011 01:25:00 PM

Panthers WR Legedu Naanee has been diagnosed with a broken foot, and is out for Week 17.

Naanee broke a "small bone" in Saturday's win. Although he'll be unable to play in Week 17, the Charlotte Observer does not expect Naanee to be sent to injured reserve. Dueling with Brandon LaFell for the Panthers' No. 2 receiver job all year, Naanee will finish with 44 catches for 467 yards. Although both totals are new career highs, they are disappointing for a player receiving the snaps Naanee did in an offense that took a giant step forward. He lacks big-play ability, and is unlikely to be a starter in 2012.
Mon, Dec 26, 2011 12:24:00 PM

Panthers WR Legedu Naanee left Saturday’s game with a foot injury and did not return.

Naanee had two catches for 12 yards prior to the injury. Armanti Edwards replaces him in the lineup.
