Despite playing in just 13 games last season, Wilson still managed to set new career-highs across the board while working out of the slot for the Chiefs. In four seasons with the Chiefs he caught 124 passes for 1,544 yards, including 42 receptions for 554 yards previous year.
With the signing of Wilson, the Dolphins will now have a receiver on the field at the same time as Kenyan Drake who they can hand the ball off to, in an effort to manage Drake's workload.
The Chicago Bears also reportedly have a strong interest in Wilson.
Wilson will get $8 million per year on average.
Reserve safety Walt Aikens is discussing re-signing with Miami, the person said, and is likely to reach a deal. Aikens typically doesn't play much from scrimmage but he's been a valuable special teams player during his four years with Miami.
On the eve of free agency, the Dolphins released veteran linebacker Lawrence Timmons as expected. 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.
Timmons' departure clears $5.5 million in cap space for Miami.
