#3: Cedrick Wilson

One of the first moves the Miami Dolphins made this free agency was bringing in ex-Cowboys wide receiver Cedrick Wilson on a 3-year deal worth $22.05 million.

Wilson was buried on the Cowboys’ depth chart for the first couple of seasons of his career but had a very respectable season in 2021 due to multiple injuries for Dallas.

He caught 45 passes for 602 yards and 6 touchdowns which is pretty impressive when you consider he only started in 4 games and was routinely the 3rd option on the field.

Much like many of the Dolphins’ additions this off-season, Wilson is at his best with the ball in his hands. The Cowboys often used Wilson in the screen game or quick routes to get him in space.

His size sneaks up on you at 6’2, 200LBs, but my guess is he won’t be the guy the Dolphins throw jump balls to, but rather the guy who they involve in the short passing game over the middle of the field as well as on some gadget plays.

Because the team already has so many players who do similar things, I don’t expect Wilson to necessarily light the league on fire, but I think he can put up some respectable numbers as the Dolphins 4th option, (Tyreek, Waddle, Gesicki), and be more than capable to step up in case of any injury.
