"I'd love to go outside," Jennings said. "Coach [Joe] Philbin knows what I can do outside."
Jennings signed a contract with the Dolphins on Thursday and he said his previous relationship with coach Joe Philbin was a big factor in his decision.
"He played a big role," Jennings said."Joe and I talk frequently whether over the phone, via text. I kept him up to date. I know what kind of a man he is, the morals and values he possesses and he instills within his own guys and himself."
Jennings is heading into his 10th season and said he still has plenty of production left.
Jennings was in discussions with multiple teams this offseason including the Jaguars, Panthers and Saints. He caught 59 passes for 742 yards and six touchdowns for the Vikings in 2014. Jennings replaces Mike Wallace, who was traded to Minnesota this offseason.

Report: WR Greg Jennings to visit with Saints
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/14/15) The next stop on the Greg Jennings Free Agency Tour is New Orleans for a visit with the Saints, a source has told NFL.com writer Ian Rapoport.
The wide receiver has reportedly already visited Miami and Jacksonville.
Jennings has settled into mediocrity since a tremendous run with Green Bay from 2007 to 2011. He caught 59 passes for 742 yards and six touchdowns last season for Minnesota.
Greg Jennings will aim to provide depth and stability among Dolphins receivers after signing with them this offseason. It's very likely that he will work as a possession receiver, working in the spot Brian Hartline left behind. That's not encouraging from a Fantasy perspective, nor does it help that he had four games with 10 or 11 Fantasy points last season -- never more. You can find better sleepers late in your draft.
