WR Albert Wilson is a Dolphin! Signed 3 years $24 Million. Welcome to Miami!
Well that's certainly not Landry money. I think this good end up being a pretty good signing.
I'm good with this. He'll catch 45-60 balls in our offense and will be very QB friendly. Should do exactly what we need in the slot. Now if only Parker can....
Headed to youtube as we speak, lol
How do you pay 8 mil a year to a guy who’s best year is 40 catches. I’m just baffled the nfl has gotten out of control is like there playing with Monopoly money.
I hope he turns out to be the F/A steal of 2018. Forgive me for being skeptical but the Tannenbaum era has killed my enthusiastic homer views. I know Wilson is from Florida and he’s most probably ecstatic coming home. Good Luck young man. Just be who you are.
I heard the Dolphins got Wilson just to piss people off on this board
Actually a little more money than I thought it was going to be but I'm assuming his first year cap hit isn't bad and we'll have more than enough money in 2019 and 2020.
However, I like that this puts emphasis on a core of WR's. Taking away Landry is like removing the training wheels from a bike, it needed to happen to get to another level.
kind of agree, its starting to get like the NBA.
Oh he’s a Dolphin alright...
What are you talking about? People on this board will get pissed off regardless of what the Dolphins do. If Damien Williams signs a 5 year, $30 million with the New England Patriots, we'd be laughing stocks.....didn't ya know.
Do you want Stills cut for his drop in Seattle?
I hope that he works out, and is a good fit with the team. It’s difficult to go from Jarvis Landry to...Albert Wilson, but we’ll see how he pans out. I actually like Wilson as a player, and never envisioned him as main cog in an offense, but a complementary piece.
thats more than i wanted us to pay him
I'e always been amazed how only Dolphin receivers drop TD passes
So then what’s the point in showing that clip?
He had more yards per reception (13.2) than Landry (8.8) with 70 less receptions (112:42) and will be half the price. Landry had 987 yards yet Wilson had 554. But Dolphins fans....
LOL to anyone who likes this signing... 8 Mil a year for this scrub? can get the same production with one of our 4th round picks. But hey he has a great attitude so lets give him a salary that puts him in the top ten highest paid slot receivers in the NFL
A complementary piece? You mean...like a real slot receiver should be? Absurd!
Yeah, speedster. I like his 4.35 combine time. He seems to be fairly similar to Landry, at least in the way he was used in KC...although I'd say they used him more effectively. He's not gonna be breaking tackles like that though.
And Landry never dropped a dam pass?
It also might be good to see how much he makes in the first year and first two years. A lot of that total 24 million dollars may be fiction.
The point is he dropped a pass that was going for 7 against his new team.
He actually broke 15 tackles last year with his minimal receptions. Twice that of Kansas City's main receiver, Hill.
8 Million seems like a bit much if the teams philosophy is to not overpay and get our cap back in order. But I guess the philosophy could be to overpay when it's convenient for them.
Never mentioned Landry, or Stills for that matter.
This feels like another move that makes no sense. I don’t see how we need a 3rd expensive WR unless someone is on the trading block.
Couldn’t we find that production much cheaper on our roster or the draft?
Did they find it the last 3 years? No. You answered your own question.
Like this signing.
Yeah, seems a little high to me too. The dude has some wheels though, and hopefully they can showcase and take advantage of that.
I could see Wilson and Jakeem Grant on the field at the same time, taking advantage of a mismatch, and one of them taking it to the house and going for a long score.
At the very least, this should loosen up some defenses and respect that speed. Not to mention when you have Stills in the mix. That’s three burners to tinker around with in the offense, and try to create mismatches.
Lol i know right and just last year with a better QB Landry had more yards per reception (12.1) than Wilson (9.0) and Landry has 22 TD's in 4 years compared to Wilson's 7 in 4 years. But who cares right? Lets just judge him on his one year with the goat Cutler.
Guess carroo is a no go..
Wilson in the slot, and Stills, DVP, and Grant in the situational. That's a good core, now who is going to throw to them?
Landry also has 400+ catches in 4 years with 22 TDs. Your math level is astounding. That means he caught a touchdown on only 5.5% of his catches. Albert Wilston caught 127 passes with 7 TDs, which means he averages 5.6% touchdowns per reception. We cut half the cost for nearly the same result. In the financial world and on the football field, that's called an upgrade.
You want to be stupid about math, let's be stupid about math.
I love we're moving in a different direction. It was about time. We can use that speed and it's only 12mill guarantee which is 4 per year. That's not bad at all
He's a nice player, but 8-per does seem rich. Hard to gauge a direction for this offseason.
I thought that as of last night the Dolphins were so cash strapped that they couldn't afford to sign their own rookie class?
Won’t matter as Berrios will be taking his reps by mid-season. We could also be going WR in one of the early rounds and Wilson will end up being the 4th-5th WR. Seems like a lot of $ to me for a guy whose highlight reel is pretty boring and is now making the same money as Stills, who’s twice the receiver that Wilson is.
Most disappointing thing is that this pretty much cements the chances of Carroo panning out. Still believe he can be a player much like Rishard showed he could be and we let him go... as we did with 7-11 as well.
