On Monday, NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo, Tom Pelissero, and Ian Rapoport reported that the Dolphins and former Cowboys receiver Cedrick Wilson have agreed to a three-year, $22.8 million contract, with $12.75 million guaranteed.
Wilson will be joining a receiving corps that already has Waddle, a former first-round choice out of Alabama who tallied over 1,000 receiving yards and six touchdowns in his first season in 2021. DeVante Parker, who has two years left on his current contract, is also still part of that group, giving Tua Tagovailoa three reliable pass-catchers to throw to when everyone’s healthy.
Following a breakout 2021 season in which he caught 45 catches for 602 yards and six touchdowns in 16 games (four starts) in Dallas in place of the injured Amari Cooper and CeeDee Lamb, Wilson is now headed to Miami. Wilson had somewhat of a breakout season last year, demonstrating that, when given the chance, he can make an impact in the passing game.
Dallas’s decision on Wilson might have been simpler if the team had more salary cap space, but the Cowboys have been forced to let players like Wilson walk and trade others due to excessive contracts elsewhere.
When it was announced on Saturday that Dallas would trade receiver Amari Cooper to Cleveland for a fifth-round pick and a swap of sixth-round picks, the Cowboys had already moved on from Cooper. While Lamb and Michael Gallup continue to be Dak Prescott’s primary targets despite Wilson’s departure via free agency, Wilson becomes the Cowboys’ second wide receiver to leave the team.
Since Mike McDaniel will be taking over as Miami’s head coach in 2022, Wilson will likely serve as the team’s third wideout. When compared to his time in Dallas, Wilson will get many more chances to contribute throughout the course of a season.
Now that the Dolphins have a new starting quarterback, Tua Tagovailoa, he will have to rapidly create chemistry with his new teammate and prove that he is worthy of being the team’s long-term starter.
