• The Dolphins could part ways with Preston Williams
  • Williams wants more playing time but may get that wish with a different NFL team
  • Dolphins coach Mike McDaniel is aware that he has multiple options 

The Miami Dolphins are aware that receiver Preston Williams is unhappy about his role on the team.

His melancholy in Dolphins uniform could be addressed soon, but it could mean playing for a new NFL team.

In a report by Sports Illustrated, the Dolphins have reportedly held talks with another team about a potential trade that would include Williams.

The 25-year-old wide receiver has already played three seasons with the Dolphins.

However, the former Colorado State Ram is reportedly unhappy with his playing time.

"I just feel like I'm not getting the opportunities that I deserve, simply scripted-wise, not being on the field-wise," Williams said to media recently via Dolphins Wire. "[I want] opportunities to show that I can beat my man."

Additionally, Williams added that he already discussed this matter with head coach Mike McDaniel.

"The only specific thing I asked him was 'I just want my opportunity,'" Williams shared. "[McDaniel] said, 'You'll get your opportunity.' I just want him to make him a man of his word, that's all."

Last NFL season, Williams played in eight games and started in three. This was the least number of games he has played in since entering the league in 2019.

In the three seasons that he has played with the Dolphins, Williams has recorded 56 receptions for 787 yards and seven touchdowns

Moreover, he had 28 receptions for 211 yards in 2020.

He did not play last year and was placed on the injured reserve.

Williams may not be the only Dolphins player moving out as his fellow wide receiver in Lynn Bowden Jr. is allegedly another stalwart who has been mentioned in trade talks per Sports Illustrated.

So far, Miami has made several moves in the offseason, adding some familiar names such as Tyreek Hill.

Aside from that, the Dolphins also have other wide-out hopefuls such as Jaylen Waddle, Trent Sherfield, Cedrick Wilson, Mohamed Sanu and rookie Erik Ezukanma all hoping to catch a break.

With those options, Williams may find it hard to get the acceptable playing time he is looking for.

Hence, Miami listening to the pitches of other teams could be exploratory with the clubs wanting to see if trading the Georgia native would be favorable to their cause.
