Wilkins was used as the punt returner, but he fielded only one punt and fair-caught it. The other punts went into the end zone or out of bounds.
Technically, Wilkins' contract was terminated.
Waived were defensive end Josh Mallard, defensive tackle Jerome Stevens, tight end Hart Turner and cornerback Kevin Millhouse.
The Dolphins have nine players with NFL Europe exemptions, meaning they'll have to be down to 74 by Tuesday at 4 p.m. That leaves them with five moves to make.
It's also possible the Dolphins could put wide receiver David Boston on injured reserve.
In another move Monday, the Dolphins activated tackle Damion McIntosh off the Physically Unable to Perform List and he took part in Monday's practice.
