- Pro Football Talk reports that Jennings gets a two-year contract worth $8 million from the Dolphins.
Miami seems like a good fit for Jennings, given that they could use a veteran receiver and Dolphins HC Joe Philbin is familiar with him from their time in Green Bay.
Jennings wound up taking visits to meet with other prospective teams including the Jaguars, Panthers, and Saints.
The Vikings released Jennings in a move that freed up $5 million in cap space shortly after the Mike Wallace trade was official.
Jennings, 31, appeared in all 16 games for the Vikings and caught 59 receptions for 742 yards receiving and six touchdowns. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the N0. 48 receiver out of 110 qualifying players.
