Dolphins receiver Legedu Naanee had a costly fumble in Sunday’s loss to the Cardinals, and it may have contributed to costing Naanee his job.
The Dolphins have released Naanee today and signed veteran receiver Jabar Gaffney to replace him.
Naanee has not played well this season even before that fumble against the Cardinals, and it’s not surprising that he lost his job. Still, there may be teams interested in his services, and those teams could include the Jets, who are looking for receivers and not ruling anyone out.
Gaffney worked out for the Dolphins a month ago and has been on the radar screen of several NFL teams that were looking for help at wide receiver. Gaffney caught 68 passes for 947 yards and five touchdowns for the Redskins last season.
