Burleson was cut this offseason by the Lions after playing in just 15 games the past two seasons due to injury. When healthy, Burleson was a productive, complementary slot receiver during his 11-year career with the Minnesota Vikings, Seattle Seahawks and Lions.

The 32-year-old has 5,630 career yards on 457 catches and 39 touchdown grabs.

The sun is minutes from setting on Burleson's playing career. He wouldn't be a game changer on the field, but the consummate pro could bring some much-needed veteran leadership to the Dolphins' locker room.

UPDATE: Burleson will visit the Browns after he meets with the Dolphins, FOX Sports 1's Alex Marvez reports.
