The Patriots have been busy retooling for 2008. Some players have come and some have gone. Here's…
Jaguars Interest in Eugene Wilson
We have now received reports that the Jaguars are talking with former New England Patriot safety, Eugene Wilson. Jacksonville is one of six teams that may be vying for Wilson's services, along with Miami, Tennessee, the New York Giants, Seattle, and Tampa Bay.
At this point in his career Wilson is a pretty average player. He is 5'10", 195 lbs., and has 10 interceptions in his five year career, all with New England. Wilson is a sure tackler from the safety position, and is an average defender against the pass. Most teams targeted his teammate, safety Rodney Harrison when attacking the Patriots defense through the air. New England likely let Wilson hit the open market due to their selection of Brandon Meriweather in the first-round of last April's draft.
If the Jaguars are to strike a deal with Wilson, he will likely compete with Gerald Sensabaugh for the starting safety position opposite Reggie Nelson. Wilson would also be able to contribute on special teams. If Wilson gets inked in Jacksonville, we will bring you a full scouting report as soon as the deal is done.
