The Dolphins might not have a clear-cut starting running back, but now they have at least four experienced receivers.
On Friday, they signed veteran wideout Griff Whalen, a smallish, but versatile fourth-year vet previously with the Colts.
Whalen has 45 catches for 487 and three touchdowns in his career. He is expected to compete with Matt Hazel for the Dolphins No. 4 receiving job. But he also could earn a roster spot on based on his special teams ability.
Whalen returned 12 punt for 85 yards and nine kickoffs for 244 more a year ago. The Colts cut him in January after placing him on injured reserve late in the season with broken ribs.
