Despite the Miami Dolphins moving on from Brian Flores and bringing in a young, first-time head coach in Mike McDaniel this offseason, one of the themes of this period has been continuity.

On Thursday, that ideal continued for the Dolphins, as they exercised the fifth-year option in defensive tackle Christian Wilkins’ contract to keep him on the team until at least the end of the 2023 season, paying him $10.7 million guaranteed in that final season.

When the news was first reported by NFL Network’s Cameron Wolfe, a number of fans and analysts had similar first thoughts about what this move meant.
