The Miami Dolphins are rumored to be looking to increase their offense, with wide receivers Greg Jennings and Michael Crabtree reportedly in their sights.
The Dolphins have had a busy offseason, trying to take what has been a continually mediocre team and get over the hump and back to the playoffs. The chief acquisition was big defensive lineman Ndamukong Suh, but now the Dolphins are reportedly looking to boost their offense.

If the Dolphins do add Greg Jennings or Michael Crabtree, it would do a lot to make up for some of their talent lost. Division rival Buffalo snatched away their talented tight end Charles Clay, who had grown to be one of Ryan Tannehill’s favorite targets.
The Miami Dolphins are rumored to be upgrading at what could be a fortuitous time. Though the New England Patriots just won the Super Bowl, they appear to be growing vulnerable as Tom Brady gets older.
CBS Sports reporter Jason La Canfora wrote that he believes the Dolphins are the team most likely to challenge New England for the AFC East crown.
“Surely, it will take more than a few weeks of moves to alter the power structure for good, and New England’s institutional brilliance won’t be quickly diminished by teams who by and large have been unable to get out of their way the past five years or more. But I’m at least willing to listen to an argument that there could be a modicum of real competition in the AFC East as the 2015 season winds down. And it’s difficult to remember the last time that seemed remotely rational, even at this time of year.”
It’s not just the Patriots that the Dolphins need to keep up with. The Buffalo Bills have been making noise this offseason, starting with the departure of coach Doug Marrone and introduction of Rex Ryan.
Since taking over, Ryan has been on a mission to upgrade the team, trading for quarterback Matt Cassel and running back LeSean McCoy and acquiring Percy Harvin and Clay.
Greg Jennings and Michael Crabtree aren’t the only upgrades the Miami Dolphins are rumored to be making on offense. The team has also hosted some other players, including guard Dan Connolly and quarterback Tavaris Jackson.
