Dolphins Are Looking To Trade Highly Paid Wide Receiver

Written by Tony Ghaul

The Miami Dolphins are reportedly open to trading wide receiver Cedrick Wilson, according to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald.

By trading Wilson, it would provide a significant boost to the Dolphins salary cap, saving them $7 million in cap space.

Wilson signed a 3-year, $22 million contract with the Dolphins last offseason after previously playing for the Dallas Cowboys.

The 27-year-old Wilson played in 15 games for the Dolphins last season. He caught 12 passes for 136 yards, which was a far cry from the 602 receiving yard season he put up with the Cowboys the season before.

The Cowboys selected Wilson in the sixth round of the 2018 NFL Draft out of Boise State.

The Dolphins signed former Jets All-Pro returner and wide receiver Braxton Berrios to help fill a slot role. This could make Wilson expendable, given his high salary and limited production in the 2022 season.
