  • Saints' Eric Wilson: Inks deal

    Wilson signed a contract with the Saints on Monday.

    Wilson spent time with the Texans and Eagles last season after spending the previous four with the Vikings. He played in 14 games in 2021, recording 46 tackles, a pass defensed and an interception. Wilson should help provide depth to the Saints' linebacker unit this upcoming season.

  • Texans' Eric Wilson: Restored from COVID list

    Wilson (illness) was activated from the Texans' reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday.

    Wilson was on the COVID-19 list for about a week. He now will be free to return to practice and prepare for Sunday's matchup with 49ers, resuming his role at outside linebacker opposite Christian Kirksey.

  • Texans' Eric Wilson: Placed on COVID-19 list

    The Texans placed Wilson on the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday after he tested positive for the virus.

    Wilson has played primarily on special teams since joining the Texans. According to Aaron Wilson of Sportstalk 790 Houston, Wilson is the Texans' only unvaccinated player, which means he'll be subject to an automatic 10-day quarantine since he tested positive. He won't be available for Sunday's game against the Chargers as a result.

  • Texans' Eric Wilson: Claimed by Texans

    Wilson was claimed off waivers by Houston on Thursday.

    The linebacker was waived by the Eagles on Tuesday after appearing in seven contests for the team this year. He made 43 tackles and intercepted a pass in those games. Wilson will have a chance to play sooner rather than later, as Christian Kirksey (thumb) and Kevin Pierre-Louis (illness) both carry questionable tags heading into Sunday's matchup with the Dolphins.

  • Eric Wilson: Waived by Philadelphia

    Wilson was waived by the Eagles on Wednesday.

    Wilson was a coach's decision inactive for the Eagles' Week 8 contest against the Lions. Coach Nick Sirianni appears to be leaning on the team's younger players for defense for the remainder of the season. Expect Davion Taylor to see an increased role for the Eagles' defense Sunday against the Chargers.

  • Eagles' Eric Wilson: Left off game-day roster

    Wilson (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's contest against the Lions, Martin Frank of the Delaware News Journal reports.

    Wilson wasn't listed on the injury report all week, so his absence from the game-day roster implies the linebacker has been benched for Week 8. Davion Taylor will likely draw the start and play the majority of snaps in Wilson's absence.

  • Eagles' Eric Wilson: Huge day in loss

    Wilson tallied 10 tackles (six solo), a pass defensed and an interception in Sunday's 42-30 loss to Kansas City.

    It was Wilson's second double-digit tackle effort on the year, bringing him to 34 on the season. He played 49 snaps (73 percent), which was just seven shy of equaling Alex Singleton for the team lead at linebacker. The Cincinnati product is currently on pace to surpass his career-high of 122 tackles from a year ago with the Vikings.

  • Eagles' Eric Wilson: Puts up 10 tackles

    Wilson posted 10 tackles (five solo) in Sunday's 17-11 loss to the 49ers.

    Despite playing just 68 percent of the defensive snaps in Week 2, Wilson was one of three Eagles players to hit double-digit stops. Through two games, he has registered 18 tackles (seven solo). He should be a sturdy IDP option as long as his playing time doesn't drop further.

  • Eagles' Eric Wilson: Tallies nine tackles

    Wilson recorded nine tackles (two solo) in Sunday's 32-6 win over the Falcons.

    Wilson tied with cornerback Avonte Maddox for the team high in tackles during his Eagles debut. With the Vikings last season, Wilson posted 122 tackles, eight pass breakups, three sacks and three interceptions. He has a strong IDP outlook this year as Philadelphia's middle linebacker.
