Dolphins set to sign Bears' FA target Albert Wilson

Dolphins set to sign Bears' FA target Albert Wilson

The Wilson news is disappointing for sure, but you can expect the Bears to be active still searching for a slot receiver and finding another pass-catching tight end (Trey Burton has been mentioned). Miami also reportedly added Danny Amendola to their wide receiver group on Tuesday.

The speedy 25-year old receiver will be asked to fill the void left by Jarvis Landry, who was traded to the Cleveland Browns on Friday in exchange for a fourth-round draft pick in 2018 and a seventh-round pick in 2019.

The Dolphins will officially sign Wilson to a three-year contract on Wednesday when free agency opens worth up to a reported $24 million. He earned 42 catches for 554 yards and three touchdowns and built a strong rapport with Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes in Week 17.

Reserve safety Walt Aikens is discussing re-signing with Miami, the person said, and is likely to reach a deal.

Wilson will get $8 million per year on average.

As expected, the Dolphins released veteran linebacker Lawrence Timmons.

Aikens has been with the Dolphins since his rookie season in 2014 and has become a key contributor on special teams.

So that's good by the Dolphins, with them spending much less on Wilson than they were going to spend on Landry, whose contract could have backfired in the Dolphins' face.
