Dolphins Planning To Sign WR Albert Wilson To Three-Year, $24M Deal


Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the Dolphins are planning to sign Chiefs WR Albert Wilson to a three-year, $24 million contract at the start of free agency on Wednesday.

The Bears had previously come up as a team to watch for Wilson, seeing as they hired former Chiefs OC Matt Nagy as their new head coach and could use receiver depth. However, it was clear that the Dolphins were seriously considering him as a replacement for Jarvis Landry.

Wilson, 25, signed on with the Chiefs as an undrafted free agent out of Georgia State back in 2014. He finished the final year of a three-year, $1,540,000 contract before returning to the Chiefs on a one-year restricted deal worth $1.797 million for the 2017 season.

In 2017, Wilson appeared in 13 games for the Chiefs and caught 42 passes for 554 yards receiving and three touchdowns. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 32 receiver out of 118 qualifying players.
