Wilson has been released by the Bengals. Wilson signed with Cincinnati in late July to fill one of the team's final roster spots, but won't be able to stick around going into the regular season. The veteran made four tackles across three preseason appearances, but posted 44 stops and an interception in 13 games, including six starts, for the Chargers last season. As a result, he could garner some interest on the open market from teams looking for depth at safety.
Wilson signed with the Chiefs on Friday, Terez Paylor of the Kansas City Star reports. The Chiefs added two safeties Friday, signing both Wilson and Stevie Brown to bolster their depth in the defensive backfield. They figure to be given a legitimate shot to make the roster after the departure of Tyvon Branch and retirement of Husain Abdullah. Wilson has a better recent track record than Brown, having played in 13 games with the Chargers last season before being waived in December.
Wilson was released by the Chargers on Tuesday, ESPN.com's Eric D. Williams reports. Wilson registered 43 tackles (solo), an interception and two passes defensed through the first 13 games of the season, primarily serving as the top backup at both safety spots. He could catch on elsewhere for the final few weeks, but his shot to make an IDP impact this season has already come and gone.
Free agent cornerback Jimmy Wilson is reportedly set to sign with the Chargers, according to his agent Drew Rosenhaus. The deal is reportedly for two years and worth $4.85 million, according to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network. Wilson, who spent his first four seasons with the Dolphins and was not re-signed by the club, totaled 59 tackles and one interception in 14 games last season.
Dolphins' defensive back Jimmy Wilson is not expected to re-sign with the team before the start of free agency, the Palm Beach Post reports. A seventh-round draft pick in 2011, Wilson served as a slot cornerback and reserve safety last season. Wilson could have an opportunity at starting at safety if he were to come back to Miami next season, as the team will likely be looking to fill the spot next to Reshad Jones.
