MIAMI (AP) - Ernest Wilford needed only one catch to surpass his
productivity for the Miami Dolphins last season.
Seeking to shake the label of free-agent bust, Wilford caught a 33-yard touchdown pass against his former team for the game's lone touchdown Monday night, and Miami beat the Jacksonville Jaguars 12-9.
It was only a preseason game, and Wilford's big play came against reserves, but it suggested his recent move to tight end might work. He made only three catches for 25 yards as a wide receiver last season after signing a four-year contract for $6 million guaranteed.
