Default Texans sign Eugene Wilson

The Chronicle is reporting that Brandon Frye was cut Tuesday to make room on the roster for Smithiak to sign former Pats CB Eugene Wilson.

Update: Kuharsky reports that Wilson has signed his name on the dotted line.

I still think there were players that could have/should have been released before Frye.

I thought Wilson was a safety?

We are raiding the NFC South I guess. Anyway Wilson sounds good to me. Hopefully Frye clears waivers and we cut someone from the PS to make room for him.

Hopefully he performs at a much higher level than Rosevelt Colvin. From what I've read Wilson was a victim of the numbers game and got beat out by a young undrafted free agent CB from Troy, Elbert Mack, who started opposite Leodis McKelvin.

Now this is good news. We just got better. I'm feeling really good about our secondary as the season wears on.

Molden will get better, Dunta will come back and our depth will be very good. The combination of Wilson and Harrison provide us with much more flexibility in the secondary since both have corner skills but can play safety.

I'm excited about this one!

He was used by the Pats mostly as a FS while also contributing to STs. Here's a pretty detailed summary of his play as posted on the Pats site. His 2006 season was spent on IR because of groin/hamstring injuries which has since not appeared to be a problem.

I did a little research and looks like he did little to distinguish himself in the preseason and got caught up in the #'s game.


Quote:
The first place they looked to trim was with the group of nine defensive backs, where the debate was between veteran Eugene Wilson, with the experience of two Super Bowl titles in New England, and rookie Elbert Mack, an undrafted free agent from Troy.

Goodbye Wilson. Hello Mack.


Quote:
Wilson, the sixth-year pro, signed as a free agent in March. He didn't do much to distinguish himself in the preseason and got caught up in a numbers crunch at a position that featured starters Ronde Barber and Phillip Buchanon, plus rookie first-round draft pick Aqib Talib.

Found this at the Bengals site....

Quote:
According to an NFC source, the Bengals on Tuesday worked out versatile veteran defensive back Eugene Wilson.

Wilson, second-round pick of the Patriots in 2003, moved on to Tampa Bay this offseason and was cut after playing in the final three preseason games with eight tackles and a sack.

Wilson, 28, brings a load of experience playing both safety and cornerback, something the Bengals could need at corner after the release of Deltha O'Neal left them with No. 3 and 4 corners that have a total of seven NFL games.

The 5-10, 195-pound Wilson made 55 starts with the Pats as well as starts in two Super Bowls, but he has fought injuries since tearing his groin in the third quarter of the Super Bowl win over Carolina four years ago.

He played in 11 games in '07 and one of his six starts came in Cincinnati with three tackles.

It's doubtful the Bengals sign any veterans before Opening Day, but Wilson could be an option if safety Chinedum Ndukwe (knee) can't go next week in the home opener against Tennessee and beyond.

Also on the road is former Bengals right tackle Willie Anderson. After visiting Baltimore Tuesday night, Anderson heads to Tampa Wednesday morning with a trip to San Diego also looming.

Word is former Bengals running back Rudi Johnson's one-year deal in Detroit is for $1.1 million.

I thought this guy was a fossil.... he's only 28! Just entering his prime.


Former 2nd round pick for the Pats, had two very good season a decent third one and was injure for the most part of his fourth and last year with them. Anybody knows why he couldn't stick with the Pats or Bucs, is it an injury issue? Or is he not good enough?

if this guy is that great, he'd have been kept by someone. This doesn't mean he isn't better than our current bench warmers, but I see nothing to be overly exicited about here.

Default Re: Texans expected to sign Eugene Wilson

This is great news. At the minimum, it doesn't make the team any worse. Frye was a guy destined for the PS... he needs to develop under Gibbs another year and then hopefully come in to take Salaams place as a 4th tackle + have back up Guard duty.

On to Wilson... I'm excited about this. I don't think he's going to come in and be a pro bowler but he should provide us with some quality play and quality depth. I was very suspicious of us getting rid of Fletcher and only having four CB's. This explains a lot. He can provide depth at both CB and S.

Just hope he works out better than Boulware (Wilson should be used differently anyways).
