Depending on which ones you ask, Miami Dolphins fans either love or loath Albert Wilson. Early in his time in South Florida, he was something of a secret weapon for Adam Gase. He had big play ability, and showed it with 4 touchdowns on just 26 catches in 2018. Wilson showed glimpses of being an electrifying player like he was early in his career, something that fans held on to as hope for his future with the team.
He struggled to find his footing during the trying 2019 season and missed all of 2020, but there were hopes that Wilson would re-emerge for Tua Tagovailoa and the Dolphins offense in 2021. That fact never came to fruition, and his time in Miami is likely over now that there is a new coaching staff in place and a new slew of receivers on the depth chart.
But there should be a home for Wilson somewhere. He won’t be a #2 or #3 guy on any roster, but he could fill a hole for a team that is in need of a slot receiver or depth piece. His best years are likely behind him as he advances in age, and he will be 30 years old when the next season begins. Even if he is not signed by the start of training camp, expect to see Wilson’s name pop up on a roster in 2022.
