Kris Wilson Drawing Interest From the Packers and Seahawks

New, comments

The less important NFL story in Green Bay today:

The 6-foot-2, 251-pound Wilson, a second-round pick in 2004, started 12 games as an H-back for the Chiefs, alternating as both a pass catcher and a blocker in the backfield. The Packers saw Wilson firsthand in a 33-24 victory over the Chiefs on Nov. 4 and they'd like to see more.

According to an NFL source, the Packers have expressed a strong interest in Wilson as a replacement for recently released tight end Bubba Franks and will bring him in for a visit. Like Franks, Wilson has the ability to line up as a tight end or in the backfield as a fullback.

The Chiefs list him as a tight end but his 12 starts were at fullback.

The article goes on to mention that the Seattle Seahawks are potential suitors for Wilson as well. Funny how Wilson just lifts right out of Kansas City, with barely any noise. He would be one of those easy top pieces in a game of Jenga.

Good luck to him if he does land in Green Bay. Maybe Aaron Rodgers can bring out Wilson's full potential?
