With the free agency period in the NFL beginning next month, the speculation has started to run rampant around the league about the potential future of free agents set to hit the open market in March.
One player that will garner a lot of attention for teams in desperate need of an upgrade at the wide receiver position is Greg Jennings. With Jennings ready to part with the Green Bay Packers, plenty of teams will show interest in signing the two-time Pro Bowler and Super Bowl champion.
At this point in time, the most likely destination for Jennings appears to be with the Miami Dolphins. Jennings was recently asked about reuniting with former offensive coordinator and current Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin in Miami and responded with the following via Josh Alper of Pro Football Talk:
“I wouldn’t mind that at all,” Jennings said. “The weather’s definitely nice. They have an up and coming quarterback and they definitely have a defense that’s pretty solid and some pieces on offense that are pretty solid as well.”
Heading into the off-season, the Dolphins’ front office is prepared to make some drastic changes in order to turn this team into a legitimate playoff team moving forward. The Dolphins will make moves to build around second-year quarterback Ryan Tannehill by targeting wide receivers in the off-season with Jennings apparently at the top of the list of potential free agent candidates.
Although Miami appears to be a likely destination for Jennings in free agency, the Dolphins will have some competition from other teams around the league looking to add talent at wide receiver.
Jennings won’t be the only big-name wide receiver available next month with Mike Wallace, Dwayne Bowe, Wes Welker and Randy Moss also set to hit the open market. Miami will have no lack of options to upgrade at wide receiver in free agency.
