AFC East: Nate Burelons

The Miami Dolphins continue to bargain hunt in free agency. The Dolphins will host free-agent wide receiver Nate Burleson on Thursday, a league source confirmed to ESPN.com.

Steve Wyche of the NFL Network first reported the visit.

Miami has solid depth at wide receiver. But it’s clear first-year general manager Dennis Hickey is looking to add as much competition as possible across the roster. Mike Wallace and Brian Hartline are Miami’s starting receivers. But Brandon Gibson, who is returning from injury, Rishard Matthews, Armon Binns and others are competing for roles.

Burelson, a 12-year veteran, caught 39 passes for 461 yards and one touchdown with the Detroit Lions last season. He’s also suffered various injuries each of the past two seasons.
