Despite a new deal with the Miami Dolphins, Albert Wilson is not safe.
Albert Wilson, WR
One of the toughest cuts this season will come from the receiver room. If any of our 2020 roster cuts go on to start for other teams, it is our receivers. But age, injury history, and cap figures will make cutting Albert Wilson a little less painful.
Albert Wilson has not played all 16 games since 2016, where he only had 282 yards on 33 receptions per PFF. His 2017 season was his most yards having 580 yards on 44 receptions. So he was never a number 1 option. But sometimes having the great straight-line speed to go along with an unbelievable change of direction keeps you around in the NFL.
Still, there is plenty left in the tank for this 2014 undrafted free-agent. Allowing Wilson to play out the last year of his contract would be an excellent way to part ways. Still, the presence of 2020 Undrafted free-agent Kirk Merritt, 2019 4th round pick (120 overall, GB) Gary Jennings, and 2016 6th round pick (186 overall) Jakeem Grant all able to handle the slot there are younger cheaper options.
Looking at Over the Cap, cutting Wilson would save the Dolphins $2,850,000 with $2,333,334 in dead money.
