The Miami Dolphins needed a veteran presence for its new-look wide receiver group. On Wednesday, they found it.

The Dolphins on Wednesday afternoon reached an agreement with free agent wide receiver Greg Jennings. ESPN's Adam Schefter and several additional football media outlets reported that the agreement is a two-year deal worth $8 million.

Jennings spent the first seven years of his professional career with the Green Bay Packers, and served as a primary target for Brett Favre and then Aaron Rodgers. The Western Michigan University wideout signed with the Minnesota Vikings in spring 2013, but was released by the team last month. He joins a Dolphins receiver corps that is rich in speed and route-running ability, but short on leadership and experience.

The Jennings signing completes an indirect swap of receivers between the Dolphins and the Vikings this offseason. Miami on March 13 traded Mike Wallace to Minnesota; the Vikings released Jennings the following day. The Dolphins this offseason also traded for former New Orleans receiver Kenny Stills.
