The report says that several other teams are in the mix for Bess' services and the Dolphins are hoping to get a mid-round selection in return. The Miami Herald reports that Arizona, St. Louis, San Francisco, Minnesota and the New York Jets are among the teams interested.
Bess played in 15 games last season, with 13 starts. He was the team's second-leading receiver catching 61 passes for 778 yards and a touchdown.
Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin was asked if Bess was in the team's long-term plans.
“Absolutely. Yeah," Philbin said to Miami Herald. "As you guys know, I envision us bringing 10 or 12 guys to training camp. We’re going to get a lot of reps as we see and we’re going to let guys go out there and compete and earn spots and take it from there."
