The Miami Dolphins have agreed a three-year deal, $24m deal to sign wide receiver Albert Wilson, according to NFL Network. He caught 42 passes for 554 yards and three touchdowns for the Chiefs in 2017 and all of those numbers mark career bests for a player who entered the league as an undrafted free agent in 2014. Wilson had two touchdown catches in four career playoff games, and he ran for a 55-yard touchdown on a fake punt in a one-point win over the Super Bowl-bound Atlanta Falcons in December 2016.
The signing can become official Wednesday when the new league year begins.
As expected, the Dolphins released veteran linebacker Lawrence Timmons.

It's not free agency if the Dolphins aren't churning their roster in weird ways, and this year featured another case of Miami getting rid of a player it drafted and developed and replacing him with a player they signed in free agency. Landry, by comparison, had 112 catches a year ago alone, even though he averaged only 8.8 yards per catch. During his final season at Georgia State, the Port St. Lucie High School grad rushed for 251 yards on yards on 24 carries.
Timmons' departure clears $5.5 million in cap space for Miami. Since joining the Dolphins, Aikens has played at cornerback, safety and been a significant contributor on special teams.
