Visits tracker: Dolphins hosting Clemons, Weeden

With Olivier Vernon shuffling off to the Big Apple, the Dolphins are looking for help along the defensive line. Could Chris Clemons be the answer?

NFL Media's Albert Breer reported that the former Seahawks and Jaguars defensive end is setting up a visit with Miami, per a source. Clemons also met with Seattle since being cut by the Jaguars earlier this month.

At 34, Clemons is coming off an underwhelming campaign with three sacks over 16 appearances. His finest career stretch saw the pass rusher notch 11-plus takedowns for three straight years from 2010 to 2012, but those days are over.

Clemons would give the Dolphins another body to aid the effort, but he's no replacement for Vernon, who came on strong down the stretch in 2015 before inking a massive deal with the Giants.

Other visits we're tracking on this fine Saturday:

  1. Former Rams linebacker James Laurinaitis has a bevy of meet-and-greets on his plate. We've learned this from a source close to the player: His father Joe Laurinaitis, better known to wrestling fanatics as Road Warrior Animal. Per the grappler, the younger Laurinaitis is set to visit Chicago, Washington, New England, San Francisco and the Giants after already meeting with Atlanta and New Orleans.
  1. Ex-Browns, Cowboys and Texans passer Brandon Weeden visited with the Dolphins both Friday and Saturday, per NFL Media's Rand Getlin. The 'Fins are looking for backup help with free-agent Matt Moore taking visits of his own. The team confirmed Weeden's visit on Twitter Saturday.
