Veteran Danny Amendola, who has been with New England for the past five seasons, is planning to sign with the Dolphins.
He is expected to sign after the start of the NFL's new year Wednesday. He earned 42 catches for 554 yards and three touchdowns and built a strong rapport with Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes in Week 17. During four seasons with the club, he hauled in 124 catches for 1,544 yards and seven scores.More news: 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' Reboot Just Needs Joss Whedon, Says Fox Head
Wilson's contract would be a $24 million, three-year deal, a second person said. Wilson is also a standout on special teams and is a very willing blocker, which gives the Dolphins a well-rounded player to utilize in almost every facet of the team's offense. He had the best game of his career in the regular-season finale against the Broncos in Denver, where he caught 10 passes for 147 yards.
His departure clears $5.5 million in cap space for Miami.More news: Reese Witherspoon, Kerry Washington's 'Little Fires Everywhere' Picked Up By Hulu
