Another Miami Dolphins wide receiver will opt out of the 2020 season.
Albert Wilson informed the dolphins that he has decided to close the campaign.
“Not an easy decision to make …” Wilson wrote on Twitter. “I have decided to opt out of this season 2020. It was a very tough choice but since the day I started playing it has always been Faith Family Football. Because of this crazy time I choose to put my family in the best situation I see fit “I will stand by my teammates and brothers to support them 1
Dolphins coach Brian Flores said in a statement, “I support Albert’s decision. I know he did it with his family in mind. I want the best for Albert, as I do for all our players.”
Wilson joins Finn’s receiver Allen Hurns, who also opted out this week.
The 28-year-old Wilson seemed planned to play a major role in the Dolphins crime as a slot receiver next to DeVante Parker. The option from Wilson and Hurns leaves Miami very young and thin on the receiver.
Parker is poised to be the Dolphins’ No. 1 goal, with Preston Williams No. 2, if he fully recovers from an ACL tear at the start of the season. The rest of the broad corps includes Gary Jennings, Isaiah Ford, Jakeem Grant, Mack Hollins and UDFA’s Matt Cole and Kirk Merritt.
Whether Tua Tagovailoa or Ryan Fitzpatrick win Week 1 starting QB gig, the job only got harder after this week’s WR news. We knew that 2020 would challenge the depth of the law. The dolphins find that truth early.
Players have until Thursday at 16 ET to opt out of the 2020 season.
