Miami Dolphins wide receiver Albert Wilson has opted out of the 2020 NFL season on Wednesday due to coronavirus concerns.
Wilson is the second Dolphins receiver to opt out of the season, joining Allen Hurns. Over 50 players have opted out of the season so far.
“I’ve decided to opt out this 2020 season,” Wilson tweeted. “It was a very tough choice but since the day I started playing the game it’s 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 & brothers to support them 100% throughout this season and will be counting the days until I can join them again.”
Last year, Wilson had 43 catches for 351 yards and a touchdown. With Wilson and Hurns opting out, the Dolphins’ receiver depth took a big hit. While they padded their wideout depth in free agency and the draft, look for them to pursue further improvements as the season approaches.
