Dolphins to sign Albert Wilson on Wednesday

Dolphins to sign Albert Wilson on Wednesday

In four seasons with the Chiefs he caught 124 passes for 1,544 yards, including 42 receptions for 554 yards a year ago.

The Miami Dolphins recently shipped Jarvis Landry to the Cleveland Browns, but now the South Florida franchise has its replacement in the slot. For his career, Wilson has 124 catches for 1,544 yards and seven touchdowns in 55 games. Thomas will become an unrestricted free agent once the new league year begins on Wednesday.

He is expected to sign after the start of the NFL's new year Wednesday.

Earlier on Tuesday, the Dolphins released veteran linebacker Lawrence Timmons after one disappointing season.

With the signing of Wilson, the Dolphins will now have a receiver on the field at the same time as Kenyan Drake who they can hand the ball off to, in an effort to manage Drake's workload. Landry averaged 8.8 yards per reception, while Wilson averaged 13.2 yards per catch on his 42 grabs. Landry, by comparison, had 112 catches previous year alone, even though he averaged only 8.8 yards per catch. Since joining the Dolphins, Aikens has played at cornerback, safety and been a significant contributor on special teams.

He signed a $12 million, two-year contract in 2017 after 10 seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Timmons' departure clears $5.5 million in cap space for Miami.
