It's a smooth pickup for Miami, reuniting Wilson with Mike McDaniel, the Niners' offensive coordinator in 2021, the story said. Wilson will take the place of Chase Edmonds, who was sent to Denver as part of the Chubb deal. Wilson owns burst through the hole, generating 486 yards and two touchdowns in eight games with San Francisco this season, the story added. With Edmonds not really a factor in the Dolphins offense as of late, Wilson could certainly steal more snaps and touches from Mostert going forward.
Deebo being out should open things up for Brandon Aiyuk to become more a focal point of the passing game. There's a chance this allows Jeff Wilson to relieve Christian McCaffrey more often, making the backup a desperation Flex option.
