The Dolphins continue scouting out acorns and today that meant hosting a visit for free agent wide receiver Legedu Naanee, who has played for two teams the past two seasons.
Naanee, 28, is a typical former San Diego Chargers wideout. He's 6-2 and 220 pounds. And he's probably a better player when Phillip Rivers is throwing him the rock than when he's not.
Naanee played 2007-2010 for the Chargers and was primarily a No. 3 receiver and No. 4 option in the pattern. Last season he went to Carolina and posted modest numbers -- catching 44 passes for 467 yards (10.6 average) with one TD.
Naanee is not a cheap Brandon Marshall. He's more like Roberto Wallace with more experience. He played collegiately at Boise State.
The Dolphins are looking to create more competition at wide receiver but finding their best receiver will be a process as no one on the roster is a game-changer. That player may have to come in the draft.
