With 24 free agents pending, it was obvious the Miami Dolphins were going to make some deep signings that would leave fans wanting more. However, they weren’t all like that. One of Miami’s ‘BiGGeST’ signings from the offseason (so far) was landing Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Cedrick Wilson.
Here’s what Kevin wrote on March 20 about the signing.
Wilson will probably be Miami’s No. 3 or even No. 4 wide receiver, but when you look at his skill set compared to Mack Hollins — who I absolutely loved — I think he was an upgrade for Miami.
Yes, it was against the Philadelphia Eagles backups in week 18.
Cedrick Wilson can playing away, but the majority of his shots came from the slot machine in 2021. In fact, according to Ryan Smith of Pro Football Focus, no wide receiver in football has lined up in the slot machine anymore. last season than Wilson, who saw 90.5% of his shots from the slot.

When asked if he considers himself a slot receiver, Cedrick Wilson had this to say:
“Yeah, I really like the slot machine. There’s a lot more room to work with. But I definitely see myself as an overall football player that I can run and throw and catch. So pretty much anyone any position I feel I’ll be comfortable in, whether it’s inside or outside in. But I’m definitely striving in the slot when I’m in it.
In my opinion, Wilson is an upgrade over Hollins. And given that Miami signed him to a three-year contract, there’s a good chance he’ll play a big part in Mike McDaniel’s system — and to be completely honest, I like the perks he’s got. ‘he brings.
I’m also intrigued to see how McDaniel could use a player like Wilson.
But don’t take my word for it.
