MIAMI (CBSMiami) – While it’s been assumed that Davone Bess would remain the Miami Dolphins’ slot receiver; that may or may not be the case. According to the New York Daily News, the Dolphins and Jets are currently pursuing wide receiver Brandon Gibson.

Gibson has spent almost his entire career with the St. Louis Rams after being selected in the sixth round of the 2009 NFL Draft. While with the Rams, Gibson accumulated 174 catches for 2,090 yards and nine touchdowns.

The 2012 season was Gibson’s best when it comes to pure numbers. He started the most games of his career (13) and played in all 16 while catching 51 passes for 691 yards and five touchdowns.

Gibson, who is not a speed receiver, would fit perfectly into the mold of a slot receiver should the Dolphins end up signing him. That would put the Dolphins in the position of having to choose between Bess, who has been solid for the team, and Gibson, unless the Fins feature four wide receivers.

Bess carries a cap number of $3.433 million in 2013 and would count $750,000 if the Dolphins released him. Bess caught 61 passes for 778 yards and one touchdown in 2012.
