The Eagles released Wilson on Tuesday.
Wilson posted a promising 2015 campaign with the Bears, totaling 28 catches for 464 yards and a touchdown while still just 22 years old. He hasn't recaptured that season since, last touching the field on Sundays during the 2016 campaign. After signing a future deal with the Eagles in January, he hasn't done enough since to earn himself a spot when training camp opens Wednesday. Given the team's depth at the position, there's still a decent chance Wilson finds a home on another roster for training camp.
Wilson didn't suit up for a game in the 2017 campaign, partially because he battled a hip injury late into preseason. Through his five seasons in the NFL, Wilson has 56 receptions on 99 targets for 764 yards and three touchdowns. The Eagles currently have a talented receiving corps, so Wilson will likely be a depth asset if he makes the 53-man roster in 2018.
The Jets opted to waive Wilson (hip) on Wednesday, The New York Daily News reports.
Wilson was picked up by the club in June in order to add depth to a thin receiving group. He tallied three catches for 20 yards in their first preseason matchup against the Titans, but was sidelined in Week 2.
