The Six Million Dollar Man: Ernest Wilford?

Kyle deManincorCorrespondent IJune 9, 2016

For six million dollars, the Miami Dolphins were hoping for more than just one reception from receiver Ernest Wilford.

So far they can keep hoping.

Signed back in February to a four-year contract, Wilford was supposed to be a big addition to a very mediocre Dolphins receiving core.

But for now, Wilford has yet to even make the starting lineup let alone make big plays.

He has just one catch for 15 yards, and has not been active the last two games.

Miami could certainly use his 6'4 frame at receiver. Greg Camarillo and Ted Ginn Jr. have been somewhat serviceable, but lack the size that Wilford offers.

In four years at Jacksonville, Wilford proved to be a productive receiver. He scored 14 touchdowns and had 141 receptions.

According to Head Coach Tony Sparano, Wilford is getting better each day and it's only a matter of time before the six million dollar man earns his keep.
