Jimmy Wilson swaps out Chargers for Chiefs

AP

Free agency continues to move forward, with a smattering of signings still happening.

The latest has occurred in Kansas City, where former Chargers safety Jimmy Wilson has joined the Chiefs. Per a league source, Wilson signed a one-year deal.

Last March, Wilson agreed to a two-year, $4.85 million deal with San Diego, but he was cut in December after making six starts. Because Wilson had been cut, the move won’t count toward the compensatory draft pick formula for Kansas City or for San Diego.

Wilson, a seventh-round pick in 2011, spent four years with the Dolphins before departing via free agency.

The former Montana defender has appeared in 73 regular-season games with 27 starts. He has five career interceptions, three sacks, and three forced fumbles.

  1. Wait and you will see. You will see the feverishly training Big John Football in action.

  2. I’m shocked they usually bring in talent. This guy couldn’t cover #4 or #5 receivers. Then they put him on ST and he was missing tackles and think that is why they cut him. Couldn’t do his 1st job then a second chance and finally bolts had to cut him. Hope he can blend with the chefs but I would not count in him balling.

  3. as a Dolphins fan Im a fan of Jimmy Wilson. He a tough guy tough player….not very talented but tough player. He is a guy you want to root for a guy you want on your team . He also has an interesting story line to the NFL. I wish you the best Jimmy

  4. Hey…. enough with the Big John Football thing. It is outright stupid and not remotely humorous. At least other personalities like “logicalvoicesays” were clever and entertaining.

  5. I second the opinion that the Big John Football thing is stupid and that this guy probably is not getting enough hours at the Supermarket or McDonalds. If he works… most likely just sponging off his poor parents.

    Anyway, Jimmy Wilson is decent at run support, his coverage skills are questionable, but as a 7th rounder with Murder charges and 2 Trials, this guy is a survivor and improved every year Stat wise. He is a good depth pickup, but don’t expect greatness or INTs. His best year in Miami was 2014 and he dropped like 3 easy INTs and the Dolphins let him walk in FA.

    Not suprising, with some of the worst coaching possible in SD. They must think they can save him.
