And now they’ve gotten him under contract.
Per a league source, Wilson has signed a five-year deal.
There’s another cornerback on the team who’d like a five-year deal, or longer. But, to date, no dice.
After the draft, coach Rex Ryan strongly hinted that his twin brother, Browns defensive coordinator Rob Ryan, preferred Wilson to cornerback Joe Haden, whom Cleveland took with the seventh overall pick. Coincidentally, both players agreed to terms on the same day. But with Wilson picked 22 spots lower than Haden, Wilson surely will be getting a lot less money than Haden.
