Wilson finished the regular season with 35 tackles, including one sack, and a pass defended in 16 games.
He has yet to miss a game in his three-year NFL career, but while Wilson was the starting strong-side linebacker on the depth chart, he actually only started nine games and routinely came off the field in passing situations. With Jaylon Smith expected to take another step forward in 2018, Wilson's role seems unlikely to grow even if Anthony Hitchens departs in free agency.
Wilson was cleared Wednesday of two aggravated assault charges stemming from a July 4 incident in Frisco, Texas, The Dallas Morning News reports.
Wilson had been facing two counts of felony aggravated assault with a deadly weapon after he allegedly backed his truck into a woman and flashed a rifle at another man. Now that he's been cleared of the charges, Wilson isn't expected to be subject to any discipline from the league or the Cowboys, allowing him to continue serving in a starting role at linebacker. Wilson has accrued 11 tackles and has broken up one pass through the Cowboys' first five contests.
