The Dolphins will release S Gibril Wilson Friday, Wilson's agent, Alvin Keels, announced on Twitter.

This move comes as a bit of a surprise since Dolphins GM Jeff Ireland offered his support for Wilson during a press conference at the Combine last week.

"We have our evaluation of Gibril Wilson," Ireland said. "We know what kind of player he's capable of being. I think he's going to be a very good player for the future. He's disappointed in his play last year. He would tell you that. He could play better. I think he will."

Apparently someone in the organization didn't think Wilson was worth keeping.

The next team Wilson, 28, signs with will be the fourth club he's played for since the start of the 2007 season.
