Wilson agreed Wednesday with the Eagles on a one-year, $3.25 million contract, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports. Wilson was thrust into an every-down role in Minnesota last season after Anthony Barr went down with a pectoral tear, and he used his extra reps to rack up 122 total tackles and three interceptions. Expect Wilson to contend for a starting role in the Eagles' linebacking corps as he moves on to Philadelphia.
Wilson tallied 122 tackles (62 solo), three sacks, eight pass breakups and three interceptions through his 16 games this season. In his fourth year with Minnesota, Wilson recorded career highs in tackles, interceptions, pass defenses and defensive snaps. It was all made possible by Anthony Barr's pectoral tear from Week 2, which sidelined him for the rest of the season. Wilson is heading into the offseason as an unrestricted free agent.
Wilson posted 11 tackles (four solo) and a pass breakup in Sunday's 27-24 overtime win against the Jaguars. Wilson hit double-digit tackles for the second time this year. With a stranglehold on the starting role because of Anthony Barr's (pectoral) absence, Wilson has capitalized with 90 stops, three sacks, five pass breakups and three interceptions through 12 games. He's second on the team to Eric Kendricks (107) in stops this year.
Wilson recorded seven tackles (five solo), a sack and a pass breakup in Monday's 19-13 win over the Bears. Wilson was quite impressive yet again, getting good pressure on Nick Foles and remaining active in coverage. He's racked up 61 tackles through nine games, just one shy of a career high, and he's already reached personal bests with 3.5 sacks, four pass breakups and two interceptions. Not bad for a contract year.
Wilson had 13 total tackles, an interception, 0.5 sacks, a QB hit and a pass defensed in Sunday's win over Detroit. Wilson racked up the tackles as he played on all of the defense's 75 snaps. He started at weak-side linebacker and is getting increased playing time after Anthony Barr was lost for the season in Week 2.
