Dolphins Vs. Panthers: Miami Wide Receiver Battle One To Watch

Chad Johnson is out of the picture in Miami, which leaves 11 other Dolphins wide receivers battling for what will likely be only six roster spots. The Dolphins are in Carolina to face the Panthers for their second preseason game tonight at 8 EST.

There aren't really a lot of names that will strike fear into opposing defenses, but the Dolphins do have plenty of options.

The Phinsider akes a look at the WR depth chart, where it looks like Legedu Naanee and Davone Bess are the starters and only Julius Pruitt seems to have claimed another spot. That leaves at most three roster spots open for eight players, each of whom will be looking at tonight as perhaps their last chance: Marlon Moore, Jeff Fuller, Rishard Matthews, Roberto Wallace, Brian Hartline, B.J. Cunningham, Chris Hogan, and Clyde Gates.

Naanee, Bess and Pruitt will at least get a chance to see how they mesh early on with rookie quarterback Ryan Tannehill, who will start his first NFL game tonight.
