We continue our Miami Dolphins free agents Walk, Franchise, Extend game.

We continue our game of "Walk, Franchise, Extend," working our way through the Miami Dolphins' 2015 free agents. We are working our way through the team's unrestricted free agents, giving you a chance to choose what the Dolphins should do with each of the players who are set to have their contracts expire in March.

Below you will find a poll. All you have to do it vote. Once we make it through all of the Dolphins' free agents, we will post the results of who you want to walk, franchise, or extend.

So far, we have run polls for tight end Charles Clay, guard Daryn Colledge, safety Louis Delmas, offensive tackle Jason Fox, cornerback T.J. Heath, running back LaMichael James, quarterback Matt Moore, running back Knowshon Moreno, defensive tackle Jared Odrick, center Samson Satele, linebacker Kelvin Sheppard, running back Daniel Thomas, and linebacker Jason Trusnik. You can still cast your votes using the links below.

We now move on to defensive back Jimmy Wilson.

Wilson is a versatile option for the Dolphins, playing both nickel cornerback and safety, something the coaches really seem to like about his game. Wilson started 13 games last year, splitting time between the nickel, free safety, and strong safety. The Dolphins have always listed Wilson as a safety, with the idea that he eventually can develop into a stater at the position; with Louis Delmas also a free agent this offseason, the 2015 season could be the year Wilson moves into that role (though reports indicate the Dolphins are not against bringing back both players). Fans were frustrated at times watching Wilson as a safety last year, where he appeared to want to make the big play, or big hit, rather than make the solid play. That can be corrected, but it was a concern.He finished the year with 58 tackles, two passes defensed, and an interception.

Wilson was the Dolphins' seventh-round pick in 2011, signing a four-year rookie contract. His deal averaged $521,475 over the four seasons, with last year's salay cap impact reaching $1,442,475.

What do you do with Jimmy Wilson?
