The move is not unexpected. On Wednesday, we had a report that Wilson would be visiting the Jaguars.
Wilson, 27, was drafted out of Minnesota by the Dallas Cowboys in the fourth round (127th overall) of the 2015 NFL Draft. He joined the Chiefs as a free agent in 2019, starting 29 games over the course of two seasons. He accumulated 154 tackles (98 solo, six for loss), 1.5. sacks, two forced fumbles and two passes defensed.
After the Chiefs drafted linebacker Willie Gay Jr. last spring — and Kansas City faced an uncertain cap salary situation — Wilson became expendable, so he was allowed to walk. Now he has found a new home — and we expect the Chiefs to continue seeking more depth at the position.
Contract details are — as yet — unknown.
