The Tennessee Titans just made huge strides in shoring up their defensive back field by signing free agent safety George Wilson.
Wilson was recently cut by the Bills and had visited with the Titans a week ago before visiting other teams to see what they had to offer. I guess Wilson found the grass to be greener in Nashville.
George Wilson, who entered the league as an undrafted wide receiver has turned himself into a valuable piece to any organization by being a leader on and off the field. Wilson will join a Titans secondary that has lacked leadership since Chris Hope was let go. The Titans also lack anybody in the defensive back field that will the wood to opposing receivers. Wilson should be able to immediately help a talented yet underachieving secondary.
One of the only downsides to signing Wilson this year is that he is 32 years old and at that age players tend to start showing their age quickly. Let’s hope he can come in and play at a high level for the next 2-3 years. Whether you like the signing of Wilson or not, one thing that can’t be argued is that the Titans secondary just got a natural leader in the locker room, on the field, and in the community.
The Titans are starting this free agency period off with a bang. Let’s hope they keep it up.
