Albert Wilson offers confident message on how he feels leading up to 2021 season with Miami Dolphins

2 Min Read

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Albert Wilson is excited to finally enter camp fully healthy.

Wilson, who sat out the 2020 season due to the COVID-19 pandemic, had a promising season in 2018 before suffering a hip injury. He wasn’t able to enter camp in 2019 fully healthy, but things have changed for the 28-year-old receiver.

“I feel great right now, just my whole body including the hip,” Wilson said. “I feel like there’s nothing I can’t do out there so it’s exciting just going into the season truly healthy and just knowing you can do anything you want.”

Wilson will have some stiff competition to make the team this season, as the Dolphins signed receiver Will Fuller and drafted Jaylen Waddle in the first round.

“The more people you get in to compete, the better your overall team is,” Wilson said. “I’m just speaking for myself but when you bring a ton of guys into the room that are veterans and know what they’re doing, you’re just going to get the best out of everybody. It isn’t going to do anything but help the team.”

Fuller, Waddle and DeVante Parker are locks to make the roster, which means Wilson will have to prove his worth to make the final cut. However, he is embracing the competition during camp this offseason.

“I’m just trying to get in and be able to compete and go to work,” Wilson said. “I’m not too caught up in how things are going to play out. I’m just looking for that opportunity.”

For his career, Wilson has racked up 193 receptions for 2,286 yards and 12 touchdowns in 75 games.
