Dolphins restructure RB Jeff Wilson’s contract

Last offseason, the Miami Dolphins re-signed their entire running back room, including Jeff Wilson Jr., who rejoined on a two-year deal worth $6 million.

Wilson was set to have a $3.67 million cap hit in 2024, and with the Dolphins needing as much room as they can get, they’ve opted to restructure the running back’s contract, according to the Miami Herald’s Barry Jackson.

With the original $3.67 million cap hit, there was a chance that the Dolphins would’ve cut him to save some money, as they’re already returning Raheem Mostert, De’Von Achane, Salvon Ahmed and Chris Brooks for the upcoming season.

In 10 games last season, Wilson rushed for 188 yards on 4.6 yards per attempt and brought in 14 receptions for 85 yards for Miami.

Now, with this restructured contract, Wilson is more likely to make the roster, as the Dolphins could keep all five on the 53-man again.
