The Miami Dolphins will not use the franchise tag on star defensive tackle Christian Wilkins, sources told NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Wilkins will be among one of the top available players at his position.

The 28-year-old recorded a career-high nine sacks and 23 quarterback hits last season.

Miami drafted Wilkins in the first round in 2019. He's accumulated one interception, four forced fumbles, 20.5 sacks, 43 tackles for a loss, and 50 quarterback hits across 77 starts.
