Report Dolphins are front-runner to sign WR Albert Wilson

Miami wasn't done there as reports emerged that receiver Albert Wilson is discussing a $24 million, three-year deal with the Dolphins.

Despite playing in just 13 games last season, Wilson still managed to set new career-highs across the board while working out of the slot for the Chiefs. The Dolphins also signed Danny Amendola on Tuesday, giving the Fins a pair of new wideouts for Ryan Tannehill (or perhaps a rookie quarterback if they land one). Wilson compiled 1,544 yards in four seasons as a spot-starter in K.C. He's coming off his most productive campaign, earning 554 yards on 42 receptions with three TDs in 2017.

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.

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

Wilson is from Port St. Lucie, Florida.

His departure clears $5.5 million in cap space for Miami.

Timmons went AWOL on the eve of last year's opener, was briefly suspended and played poorly when he returned. Wilson is also a standout on special teams and is a very willing blocker, which gives the Dolphins a well-rounded player to utilize in almost every facet of the team's offense.
