The Miami Dolphins have already added veteran WR Chad Ochocinco-Johnson this offseason and it appears they could add another veteran prior to the start of the regular season. The Miami Herald is reporting that the Dolphins worked out veteran free agent Braylon Edwards last week in a private session. Edwards does come with some health issues, after languishing on the San Francisco 49ers roster last year before being placed on the injured reserve list after dealing with lingering knee issues.
According to the Miami Herald, the Dolphins feel that Edwards is over his knee injury issues. Edwards would likely come as a low-cost, low-risk addition with the potential for high end returns for the Dolphins if he is able to return to pre-injury form.
Edwards best year was in 2007 while he was a member of the Cleveland Browns. Edwards reached the Pro Bowl after posting a 1,289 yard, 16 touchdown season. Edwards was eventually traded, mid-season in 2009 to the New York Jets. He nearly reached the 1,000-yard plateau in 2010 with the Jets while scoring seven touchdowns.
The Dolphins have been without the services of receiver Brian Hartline this training camp and most all of the offseason. Hartline under went an appendectomy during the offseason and has missed all of training camp so far with a calf injury.
The Herald reports that the Dolphins could sign Edwards within the next two weeks, if not sooner.
