Dolphins WR Albert Wilson Opts Out Of 2020 Season


Dolphins WR Albert Wilson announced Wednesday he hs decided to opt out of the 2020 season. 

He’s the second Miami receiver in the past two days to decide to opt out following teammate Allen Hurns.

Earlier this offseason, Wilson took a paycut to be able to stay with the team and prove himself after an injury-plagued first two years in Miami. 

Wilson, 27, 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.

The Dolphins signed Wilson in 2018 to a three-year, $24 million contract that included $14.45 million guaranteed.

Wilson was set to make a base salary of $3 million with $1 million available in incentives in 2020 that will now be pushed to 2021. 

In 2019, Wilson appeared in 13 games for the Dolphins and caught 43 passes for 351 yards receiving and one touchdown. He also added five carries for 45 yards.
