NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Dolphins have emerged as the "front-runner" for free agent WR Albert Wilson. Reserve safety Walt Aikens discussed re-signing with Miami and is likely to reach a deal, a person familiar with the negotiations said.
The ex-K.C. wideout is the third receiver to agree to a deal before the NFL's new league year opens Wednesday, joining Allen Robinson (Bears) and Sammy Watkins (Chiefs).
It's not free agency if the Dolphins aren't churning their roster in weird ways, and this year featured another case of Miami getting rid of a player it drafted and developed and replacing him with a player they signed in free agency.
Wilson will get $8 million per year on average. 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.
Wilson, 25, set career highs with 42 catches for 554 yards and three touchdowns last season with Kansas City.
His departure clears $5.5 million in cap space for Miami.
