The Miami Dolphins, who have the youngest wide receiver corps in the NFL, have been flirting with some veteran wide outs recently, bringing them in for workouts and visits. That continued on Tuesday as the team welcomed free agent Greg Jennings to their Davie training complex. Jennings, who spent the past two years with the Minnesota Vikings, played for Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin when both player and coach were with the Green Bay Packers.

According to a report from the Miami Herald's Adam Beasley, the fact that Jennings left the meeting without a contract does not mean a deal will not happen; Beasley writes Jennings signing with the Dolphins "very much remains a possibility." The Dolphins have previously met with Michael Crabtree, but did not seem interested in offering the former San Francisco 49ers wide out the salary he wanted.

The Dolphins currently have a starting receiving corps of Jarvis Landry, Kenny Stills, and Rishard Matthews. Matthews is the most senior of the group, at 25-years old and entering his fourth season. Landry is 22 and will be in his second year in the league after being Miami's second round pick last year, while Stills, for whom Miami traded this offseason, will be entering his third season and will turn 23 later this month.

Jennings, in contrast, will turn 32 just after the season begins and will be playing in his 10th NFL season. He has 552 career receptions for 8,083 yards with 63 touchdowns. He made two Pro Bowl appearances, in 2010 and 2011, both during his time with the Packers. Last season, his second with the Vikings, saw Jennings record 59 receptions for 742 yards with 6 touchdowns.
