The Miami Dolphins have made another offseason move this time with an addition. The Dolphins will sign wide receiver Albert Wilson to a three year 24 million dollar deal. This according to a report from NFL Network. 

Wilson, 25, signed with the Chiefs in 2014 as an undrafted free agent and spent four seasons with the club before joining the Dolphins. Wilson returns to his home state of Florida by joining the Phins.

He’s coming off a career-high in catches (42) and yards (554) and gained more traction than some would have thought during this process. For his career, Wilson has 124 catches for 1,544 yards and seven touchdowns.

Many thought he would head to the Bears joining Matt Nagy, but they added Allen Robinson. Wilson comes to Miami after the loss of Jarvis Landry to the WR corps. Landry of course was traded to the Browns late last week, which created a major whole at the position for Miami. 

At 5-foot-9, 200 pounds, Wilson seems likely to fill the slot receiver role that’s being vacated by Landry. While Wilson will not come in and be like nor replace Landry’s production he is still a solid player.

He joins Kenny Stills and Devante Parker as the top three options in the Dolphins passing attack. As the Dolphins continue the “Culture change” it will be interesting to see the next move they make.
