The Miami Dolphins plan to sign soon-to-be former Chiefs wide receiver Albert Wilson, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.

Wilson, 25, signed with the Chiefs in 2014 as an undrafted free agent and spent four seasons with the club before joining the Dolphins.

Many people, including Chiefs general manager Brett Veach, assumed that Wilson would be off to Chicago to join Matt Nagy, but Wilson instead returns to his home state on a lucrative contract from the Dolphins. Wilson is originally from Port St. Lucie, Florida.

News emerged late Monday that Wilson’s market was heating up, with several teams interested.

The Chiefs likely opted to move on from Wilson, a depth receiver, as they locked in on a no-doubt starter in Sammy Watkins. Watkins also offers much more of a deep threat than Wilson.
