Jennifer Hilderbrand-USA TODAY S

The Miami Dolphins officially announced the free agent visit of wide receiver Nate Burleson today.

The Miami Dolphins have completed their free agent visit with former Detroit Lions wide receiver Nate Burleson, the team announced today. Burleson's visit was first reported yesterday by NFL Network's Steve Wyche.

Burleson spent four seasons with the Lions. He has also played for the Seattle Seahawks and the Minnesota Vikings during his 11-year career. He has 457 career receptions for 5,630 yards with 39 touchdowns.

Miami currently has Mike Wallace, Brian Hartline, Brandon Gibson, Rishard Matthews, Armon Binns, Kevin Cone, Ryan Spadola, and Michael Rios at the receiver position. They have 62 total players under contract, with 28 open roster spots before they reach the NFL's 90-man offseason roster limit.

Burleson could be signed to provide depth at a position that saw several injuries last year, including to Hartline, Gibson, and Binns. Burleson was injured prior to the 2013 season, breaking his arm in two places in a car accident. He was scheduled to make $5.5 million this season prior to the Lions releasing him.

Burleson is expected to visit with the Cleveland Browns next, according to FoxSports1's Alex Marvez.

The Dolphins announce all free agent visits once they are complete.
