On Thursday, the Dolphins claimed WR Chris Hannon off waivers from the 49ers.
Hannon (6'3", 205 lbs.) takes the roster spot vacated by placing LG Justin Smiley on Injured Reserve. He is 24 years old, entering the league in 2006 as an undrafted free agent with the Kansas City Chiefs.
In 2006, he spent the first 15 games on the Chiefs' practice squad, before being promoted to the active roster for the final game. He was on the Panthers' practice squad for all of 2007. Hannon spent the first three months of this season on the 49ers practice squad, but he was promoted to the active roster on November 29 before being released on December 2.
Hannon is known primarily for his tremendous speed.
