Bengals add Tyler Wilson

Wilson AP

Bengals quarterback Jason Campbell emerged from the preseason opener with an injured arm, which means the Bengals need some more depth at the position.

They’ve gotten it, by signing quarterback Tyler Wilson.

A fourth-round pick of the Raiders who was cut before the 2013 season and passed through waivers, Wilson spent much of his rookie season on the Oakland practice squad.  After two weeks on the active roster, Wilson once again passed through waivers and returned to the practice squad.

The Titans eventually came calling, adding Wilson for the last two weeks of the year.  Wilson recently got a pink slip in Tennessee, and then passed through waivers for a third time.

Wilson joins Andy Dalton, A.J. McCarron, Campbell, and Matt Scott on the 90-man roster.

    Can Tyler Wilson play Safety? My Packers still don’t have even a decent Safety.

    Sometime between today and August 31st I guarantee ill see another headline like;

    “Tyler Wilson cut, end of the road?”

    And what the hell is he going to do???

    He’s done nothing to stay on 2 teams before the first cut down.

    He’s another ex-Petrino QB who benefited from Petrino’s offense.

    Even Joey Harrington (although never his college QB) benefited under Petrino in Atlanta by having his only 60+% comp. percentage season there.

    Can’t blame him for not giving up I suppose.

    He’s there as an extra arm until Campbell is healthy again. Then he’ll be cut. Sad when players can’t see through this reality.

    Tyler Wilson is a bust and a Cam Newton wannabe

    I’m pretty sure he understands he’s not coming in to compete with Dalton. He’s just making a living.

    I will try and remember how much better I have it then Tyler Wilson as sit in traffic on my way to work Monday morning.

    Considering who they have after Andy Dalton, Wilson actually has a chance to make the final 53.

    “And what the hell is he going to do???”

    He’s going to play for a quarter of a preseason game, and get cut when Jason Campbell is ready to play. It isn’t that hard to figure out.

    try, and try again

  16. nomoreseasontix says: Aug 9, 2014 10:34 PM

    Wilson is at least as good as Campbell.

  17. youpeopleareallthesame says: Aug 10, 2014 8:21 AM

    All of a sudden that depth chart on offense doesn’t inspire confidence. Andy better not get hurt

    Wilson >>Schaub

    Matt Scott made a strong case for the backup role in that game. Let’s see how he plays the next three games.

    Didn’t the Packers draft Ha-Ha Clinton-Dix, or was that my imagination?

    Tyler Wilson is good, but he’s no Tim Tebow.

    Yet another indicator of why the Raiders have been bad for so long.

    Better known as Tyler “we made a mistake signing Dalton” Wilson

    __________
    Exactly I mean according to some Bungals fans the Steelers must not be happy with their RBs since they signed a camp body in Houston so if that is the case the Bungals must not be happt with Dalton.
