The Cowboys had hoped to keep Cedrick Wilson and Michael Gallup with Amari Cooper headed to the Browns in a trade. On Monday, the Cowboys announced Gallup’s signing, which was reported Sunday as a five-year, $62.5 million deal.

But, in recent days, it became obvious to the team’s front office that Wilson would get more money elsewhere. Indeed, Wilson, 26, is leaving the Cowboys after four seasons.

Wilson is closing in on a three-year deal with the Dolphins, Jonathan Jones of CBS Sports reports. ESPN adds that Wilson will get $22.8 million with $12.75 million guaranteed.

Wilson had a career year in 2021, catching 45 passes for 602 yards and six touchdowns.

He has 67 career receptions for 837 yards and eight touchdowns.

  1. Looks like the Dolphins will not be persuing Jarvis Landry. This could be an upgrade

  2. Good move. Fuller was a waste last year. Hopefully Wilson can stay healthy. He’s gonna be a good #3 for them. Or #2 depending on if the keep Parker.

  3. this guy caught everything that went his way… I was really hoping Dallas would have kept him. He is easily a solid #2 guy and can beat you deep with his vertical and big hands. Dude is clutch

  4. I will miss the guy but he’s not worth 7.5 million a season. He’s a 3rd receiver at best and he had two really good receivers in front of him to draw coverage away from him. Typical of the Dolphins overpaying for someone. They made the same mistake with Byron Jones two years ago.

  5. Wilson is a good complimentary # 3 guy. They overpaid though. Wilson’s play went downhill pretty quick when Cooper and others where out. He does not do so well when defenses know he is being targeted. Good fill in though. Do not see him being as successful in Miami.
