Jets' J.J. Wilcox: Reneges on 49ers, heads to Jets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilcox backed out of a deal with the 49ers and is expected to ink a deal with the Jets instead, Rich Cimini of reports.

Despite agreeing to terms on a one-year contract with the 49ers, Wilcox backed out for unclear reasons. Cimini had sources report that it was either stage fright or a desire to play for Jets head coach Todd Bowles. Either way, Wilcox should be in green and white come Week 1. Bowles has expressed that all 22 starting positions are up for grabs, but Jamal Adams and Marcus Maye both manned the two safety roles as rookies in 2017 and will be looking to make major strides in their development this offseason. This will make it tough for Wilcox to earn a starting job. The 27-year-old slotted into a limited role with the Steelers last season and was held to 12 tackles in 12 games, so he projects as a rotational safety in 2018.

49ers' J.J. Wilcox: Signs with San Fransico
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilcox signed a one-year deal with the 49ers on Tuesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Wilcox was released by the Steelers back in April after just one year with the team, where he appeared in 12 games and recorded 12 tackles and one interceptions. At a minimum, Wilcox should be able to carve out a special teams role in San Fransisco, but he should also have a legitimate opportunity this offseason to carve out a role for himself in the team's secondary.

Steelers' J.J. Wilcox: Grabs first interception of season Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilcox recorded five tackles (four solo) and an interception in Sunday's 23-17 overtime loss to the Bears.

Wilcox showed no lingering effects from the concussion he sustained last week, picking off a pass thrown behind the Zach Miller at the Chicago 21, which led to a tying field goal by Chris Boswell midway through the fourth quarter. This was his first interception of the season and the sixth of his career. He'll look to add to that total in Week 4 against Baltimore, as the Pittsburgh defense recorded two interceptions in their two games against the Ravens last season.
