Albert Wilson won over our hearts as a trick play speedster a couple of seasons ago, perhaps causing us to overrate his importance to the offense.
It has been a steady decline since then, and he was unable to put up any impressive numbers in an offense that badly needed playmakers. He also ran backwards a lot of the time when he caught the ball. What was up with that?
Wilson’s contract is set to expire.
Of all of the players on this list (depending on how you feel about Tua), Emmanuel Ogbah may be the player that the fan base would most like to see return next season.
Ogbah will become a free agent at season’s end, and losing him would be a big blow to a defense that is reliant on its playmakers. He can disrupt the passing game both by rushing the quarterback and by deflecting passes with his gigantic mitts.
If Sunday is Ogbah’s last game in Miami, then the Dolphins have made a serious mistake.
The longest tenured Miami Dolphins player could be seeing his time come to an end. The team may look to get younger at wide receiver, and DeVante Parker carries a hefty price tag and will be 29 years old next season.
It isn’t as much his age as it is his durability that may make him expendable. The Dolphins are looking for someone they can count on to play at least most of the 17 game schedule.
The Miami Dolphins kicking game was rough this season. Jason Sanders went from being one of the most reliable players on the team to being shaky even from inside 45 yards. Unfortunately, Miami gave Sanders a big contract.
But they can fix the punting position. Michael Palardy spent just one season in Miami, and had far more forgettable punts than ones that helped the Dolphins by flipping field position. Luckily, he was only on a one-year deal and the team will look elsewhere next season.
