Dolphins linebacker Lawrence Timmons cut after poor year

Sources told ESPN and NFL Network that Wilson intends to sign a three-year, $24 million pact with the AFC East franchise. The Dolphins acquired a fourth-round pick in the 2018 NFL Draft and a seventh-round pick in the 2019 NFL Draft in that exchange.

All other members of the eight-man 2014 draft class, including wide receiver Jarvis Landry, the second-round pick who is expected to be traded to the Cleveland Browns, and guard Billy Turner, the third-round pick who was cut last season, are gone. In four seasons with the Chiefs he caught 124 passes for 1,544 yards, including 42 receptions for 554 yards a year ago. Last year, Amendola caught 61 passes for 659 yards. He has 26 career starts.

Wilson is from Port St. Lucie, Florida.

The Dolphins' current options at slot receiver are Jakeem Grant, Leonte Carroo and Rashawn Scott, as well as some practice squad players they've been trying to develop. The three-time Pro Bowler led the National Football League with 112 receptions in 2017. He had 42 yards and a touchdown in the Monday Night win over New England and a career-high 107 yards and a touchdown against Kansas City in December. During four seasons with the club, he hauled in 124 catches for 1,544 yards and seven scores.
