Gibril Wilson to be released

Chalk up another huge swing-and-a-miss for the Parcells/Ireland free agent acquisitions.

Gibril Wilson's agent, Alvin Keels, announced on Twitter today that the Dolphins will be releasing Wilson today.

Miami currently has Chris Clemons and Tyrone Culver on the roster as possible replacements, but his release probably means that the team is trying hard to land Antrel Rolle. But is that really a good thing? Rolle isn't that good of a cover safety and that's what this team needs at the free safety spot.

Sure, he may make a good number of big plays, but he's going to be giving up plenty of them as well. And isn't that what angered all of us so much about Wilson? Is paying a huge contract to another free safety who can't cover a smart idea?

I'd rather see Culver/Clemons/a rookie battle for the job.
