Miami return man Jakeem Grant asked to learn outside WR


  • The Miami Dolphins have reportedly asked Jakeem Grant to learn outside receiver positions.
  • Grant was primarily a return man during his rookie year, scoring on a punt return and averaging 8.3 yards per punt return.
  • He played just 19 snaps on offense over the season, and was targeted once.
  • Of those 19 snaps, eight of them came at outside receiver positions, with the other 11 coming inside from the slot.
  • At 5-foot-6 and 169 pounds, it’s going to be a challenge to carve a traditional role for him on offense whatever the position.2017-05-07_09-43-29
