The Splash Zone 9/5/16: Dolphins Claim Ex-Titan Justin Hunter

Welcome to the Splash Zone, the quickest way to get your day started off right. We bring you a rundown of Miami Dolphins news from the last 24 hours.

The Dolphins decided to add another weapon to their receiver room with the addition of former Tennessee Titan Justin Hunter. Hunter was claimed off waivers and is familiar with Dolphins wide receiver coach Shawn Jefferson. Hunter is a former second round pick who just hasn't been able to put it all together in the NFL yet. He'll be buried behind Jarvis Landry, Kenny Stills, and DeVante Parker (if healthy). To make room for Hunter, the Dolphins released WR Griff Whalen.

You can check out that story here, and the rest of the day's round-up below.
