Miami Dolphins should look at either Greg Jennings or Michael Crabtree

Should the Dolphins sign veteran WR Greg Jennings?

The Miami Dolphins need to make a decision soon on what to do with Charles Clay. While the team has 5 days to match the Buffalo Bills offer of 5  years and 38 million, the decision needs to be made quickly in my opinion.  

The Dolphins have a little cap space, but by them not signing the deal, and letting the Bills take the large contract of Clay they can begin targeting guys for a visit to Miami.  

Several players the Dolphins need to take a look at are Michael Crabtree and Greg Jennings.  The Dolphins current wide receivers are Rishard Matthews, Jarvis Landry, Kenny Stills and Matt Hazel.  The team does not have a veteran on their team and a guy like Greg Jennings would be very suitable.  The team cut ties with both Brandon Gibson and Brian Hartline, and they traded Mike Wallace.  The Dolphins have cap space and holes to fill, but if they want to compete in their division which is getting much stronger, they need to get a few more weapons. 

Last year, Crabtree was a little banged up, but he is still a very good player. Crabtree comes in after making 68 catches last season and that was down from his last full season in 2012 when he set career highs with 85 catches and 1105 yards. Crabtree has been up and down during his time in San Francisco, but he is still fairly young and could be a productive number two or number three receiver moving forward.

While Jennings was released with a failed physical, because of a minor surgery, he might be a player that could help the Dolphins win right now. Last season Jennings caught 59 receptions for 742 yards and scored six times.  This would be another good fit, although many want the Dolphins to draft another wide receiver, too many young receivers might be worse for Tannehill going forward.  The Dolphins need to win now and if they want to win now they need a veteran in the locker room.
