The Miami Dolphins finished 6-10 this season and have a lot of key decisions to make in an effort to improve in 2016. Hiring new head coach Adam Gase and promoting a new general manager in Chris Grier provides a fresh set of eyes on an overpaid roster that underachieved last year and must cut salary.
With that said, we're rolling out a new series this week called “Stay, go or restructure.” Next up is a veteran receiver in Miami:
Stay, go or restructure: WR Greg Jennings
Experience: 10 seasons
2015 stats: 19 receptions, 208 yards, one touchdown
2016 salary/cap charge: $4 million/$5.5 million
Analysis: Jennings had a disappointing 2015 season with career lows in receptions, yards and touchdowns. The 32-year old was brought in by former Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin, who coached Jennings in Green Bay, to provide leadership for young receivers such as Jarvis Landry and DeVante Parker. Jennings helped in that regard, but didn’t provide much on the field. Philbin also is gone. Jennings signed a two-year deal that pays him $4 million in 2016. But with Miami needing to shave money off its high salary cap, it seems unlikely that Jennings will return at that amount.
