Dolphins will host WR Michael Crabtree

The Miami Dolphins will host free-agent receiver Michael Crabtree for a visit, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports.

Miami is in need of help at wide receiver. The team cut or traded three contributing receivers this offseason in Mike Wallace, Brian Hartline and Brandon Gibson.

Crabtree is a former first-round pick of the San Francisco 49ers who could be a starter – or even No. 1 receiver – in Miami’s offense. He had 68 receptions for 698 yards and four touchdowns last season.

New Dolphins vice president Mike Tannenbaum was high on Crabtree coming out of college. Schefter reports the receiver was No. 1 on Tannanbaum’s board in 2009, which explains the interest.
