Dolphins to sign Albert Wilson

Good news: it sounds as if Wilson will be substantially cheaper, as Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports Wilson is signing a three-year contract that will pay him $24 million.

Amendola, 32, is a nine-year National Football League veteran with 426 career receptions and 19 touchdowns, and since 2013 he has played in 13 postseason games with Brady and New England. With Jarvis Landry no longer in town, Wilson will likely be asked to play the same role for the Dolphins, albeit without as much volume.

Over his nine year career, Amendola has caught 426 passes for 4109 yards and 19 touchdowns.

Wilson set career-highs in catches (42), yards (554) and touchdowns (3) previous year with the Kansas City Chiefs. During four seasons with the club, he hauled in 124 catches for 1,544 yards and seven scores.

On the eve of free agency, the Dolphins released veteran linebacker Lawrence Timmons as expected.

Aikens has been with the Dolphins since his rookie season in 2014 and has become a key contributor on special teams. He had the best game of his career in the regular-season finale against the Broncos in Denver, where he caught 10 passes for 147 yards.

The personable Aikens was switched to cornerback previous year from safety, where he spent most of his career.

Timmons' departure clears $5.5 million in cap space for Miami.
