Players like Antonio Callaway and Nyheim Hines should've certainly been on the Dolphins radar heading into April's draft, but the signing of Wilson should quell some of Miami's concerns at the slot position.
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.
Amendola, 32, is a nine-year National Football League veteran with 426 career receptions and 19 touchdowns, and since 2013 he has played in 13 postseason games with Brady and New England. Last year, Wilson had a cap hit of $1.8 million, so you can imagine he's quite happy with his new payday.More news: Kittel sprints to 6th stage victory, Kwiatkowski keeps…
As expected, the Dolphins released veteran linebacker Lawrence Timmons.
Wilson is from Port St. Lucie, Florida.
Wilson averaged 7.0 FanDuel points per game last season, with 42 catches (62 targets) for 554 yards and 3 touchdowns.
He signed a $12 million, two-year contract in 2017 after 10 seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers.
