J.J. Wilcox left 49ers’ facility without signing, now plans to sign with Jets

So much for J.J. Wilcox signing with the 49ers.

Wilcox was in the 49ers’ facility intending to sign a contract today, but he had a last-minute change of heart and now plans to sign with the Jets, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.

Although Wilcox and the team had agreed to terms, he suddenly backed out today and decided he wants to play for Jets head coach Todd Bowles, according to the report.

So Wilcox, a 27-year-old safety, is now flying to New Jersey, ready to sign with the Jets.

This is the second consecutive offseason that Wilcox has had an odd switch from one team to another. Last year he signed a two-year, $6.25 million contract with the Buccaneers in the offseason, but he was traded to the Steelers before the start of the regular season. The Steelers cut him in April.

Now Wilcox will sign with the Jets, and perhaps stay there longer than he lasted with the Buccaneers and Steelers — and certainly longer than he lasted with the 49ers.

  1. JJ Wilcox couldn’t play in the worst all around secondary in the league and somebody is goin to pay him ?

  2. Guess the 49ers just weren’t fun enough. Has anyone told the ex Pat covered in tats?

  3. Not sure what Wilcox’s issue is, but we’ll find out soon enough. These kinds of stories all seem to end up with the player’s private issue becoming very, very public in the worst possible way.

  4. If we were signing a safety why not Reid to a one year deal especially if he knows the system.

    truth hurts i guess eh, when players come to Dallas they usually stay and sign, not leave when they realize how overrated it is in Clara.

    Looks like Jackedupboonie just exposed himself having multiple accounts. Never see this guy on Cowboy articles and there is only ONE person on the internet who refers to the Niners as “clara”.

    Truth is i dont care for either team but the cowboys for sure suck. Dak is not a good qb. seems as though plenty of their players leave. It is funny though that you call SF “Clara” as an insult but your team plays in Arlington. Pot meet kettle?

  12. He’s not a cowboy fan, he’s a Seattle fan upset because his team is on the decline.

    Dak has played only 2 years and has won 22 games as a starter, that’s an average of 11 wins per year, Jimmy G has only 7 wins in his entire career so how can you say he is not good? Last year Dak didn’t have Zeke for 6 games and Tyron Smith missed some time at left tackle. The Cowboys will win more games than Clara this season, book it.

  14. No one wants to play in SF if they have options or unless SF is making them the highest paid player in the history of football, which is why Jimmy G stayed though he bent them over a barrel. SF will regret that decision when 8 or so games into the year they figure out he is the next Matt Cassel.

  15. lol stucats. just watch football. dak is not good. he cant read defenses and throw wrs open. he is reliant on his run game. he is a game manager. a poor mans Alex Smith. he continues to get worse and worse with every game he plays.

    its hilarious when people talk about jimmy not being good. he is very good. however, i will not declare anything because injuries can always happen. in terms of pocket talent, reading defenses, accuracy, etc he is a top NFL qb.

    but hey…keep saying dak is good because of a fluke rookie year and use 7 games as a reason to say jimmy isnt good. we will see 😀

  16. 22 wins as a starting quarterback is better than 7 wins the last time i checked. Keep living the dream Clara fans when teams figure out Jimmy G and you are stuck with that massive overpaid contract for many years to come.

  17. I see we’ve sunk to the level where it takes an article about JJ Wilcox for there to not be mention of politics. Awesome.

    In that case, let’s go through the motions. Okay depth signing, I guess. Will probably sign with another team 1-2 years later. Still only 27 and minor injury history (maybe because of limited usage), so should be around for a while. Okay depth signing.

  18. It’s been the The Santa Clara 49ers. San Francisco is 40 miles north of Clara. That’s a two hour drive on just about any day of the week in the Bay Area.
