It was a tad surprising the Miami Dolphins handed receiver Albert Wilson a three-year, $24 million contract considering Wilson has failed to catch 45 passes or hit the 600-yard mark in each of his first four NFL seasons. But Miami may have seen something, and Wilson showed it in OTAs.
Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald noted the 25-year-old is “perhaps outplaying all of the others in OTA practices so far this spring.”
Meanwhile, the Herald’s Barry Jackson reported “the Dolphins have been so impressed with new receiver Albert Wilson that they have decided he can be lined up not only in the slot, but also on the boundary and in the backfield.”new nike nfl jerseys for sale cheap
Said receivers coach Ben Johnson, per Jackson:
“When we looked at Albert on film, we were intrigued, obviously with the speed. We were intrigued with the run-after-catch ability. I think all of that has been there. It’s been impressive to me to see him come in, pick up this system and learn these fundamentals that he wasn’t really doing the same thing in Kansas City. He’s really done a nice job the past two weeks. It’s really triggered us to say he’s not limited in the slot, cheap wholesale nike nfl jerseys he’s not limited outside. He can line up in the backfield. He can do so many different things for us. His versatility is really, really showing up.”cheap nfl nike jerseys free shipping
So maybe the Fins won’t miss Jarvis Landry after all?
The Minnesota Vikings are paying Kirk Cousins ridiculous money in hopes that the veteran quarterback can help the franchise win its first Super Bowl. By all indications, Cousins has come through with a strong early impression.cheap nike jerseys nfl
Said Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer, per Kyle Ratke of Vikings Wire:
“I thought he looked good. He’s a very anticipatory thrower. He throws guys open. He’s very, very accurate. I think he’s doing a good job of taking control of the offense. Like everybody he’s learning a new system, learning new people. I thought he did good today and I thought he’s done good the whole time he’s been out here.”
One of Cousins’ top targets also sang his praises, with Adam Thielen telling NFL.com’s Tom Pelissero:cheap nfl jerseys from china nike
“The ball comes out of [Cousins’] hand differently. Every quarterback has their strengths and weaknesses, and I’m not here to evaluate that, but all I can say is, the ball comes out of his hand differently.
“[Stefon] Diggs said it the other day—the spiral he puts on it just makes it easy for us to catch. It just kind of pops out of his hand differently than you’re used to, and you don’t see that kind of stuff on film. You can only see that when you’re out here practicing.”cheap new nike nfl jerseys
