4. Cedrick Wilson, WR, Miami Dolphins

This hasn’t been the season Cedrick Wilson hoped it would be. The former sixth-round pick from Boise State spent four seasons with the Dallas Cowboys and had a breakout campaign in 2021 when he caught 45 passes for 602 yards with six touchdowns.

He came up clutch often for Dallas, especially when they were without Michael Gallup as he struggled through a knee injury last year before tearing his ACL near the end of the season.

Wilson then signed a three-year deal for $22.8 million with the Miami Dolphins, where he was expected to be the No. 2 guy across from Jaylen Waddle. That changed when the Dolphins added Tyreek Hill in a surprise trade with the Kansas City Chiefs.

So far, Hill and Waddle have been the main targets for Tua Tagovailoa and Wilson has just two receptions on three targets and didn’t see the field at all in Week 3 — although he was dealing with some injury concerns that limited him.

Having said that, he’s clearly not high on the pecking order for Miami which is why it would make sense to send him to a receiver-needy team where he could be better utilized. Of course for the Dolphins, the important thing would be getting out of that contract which they likely wouldn’t have offered had they already landed Hill.
