More than a month after trading receiver Brandon Marshall to the Bears, the Dolphins finally have filled Marshall’s spot on the roster.
With Legedu Naanee.
Naanee has signed a one-year deal with the Dolphins, according to the Twitter page of agent David Canter. Presumably, it’s for the veteran minimum. Otherwise, Naanee would have signed a contract three or four weeks ago.
After four years with the Chargers, Naanee joined the Panthers in 2011, generating a career-high 44 catches for 467 yards. The Panthers opted instead to go forward with Steve Smith and a gaggle of guys with two seasons or fewer of experience.
Naanee joins a depth chart that consists of Davone Bess, Brian Hartline, and several guys you’ve never heard of unless you’re related to them.
