The Jaguars announced Saturday they re-signed safety Jarrod Wilson. Wilson was set to become a restricted free agent in March.

The team originally signed Wilson as an undrafted free agent in 2016, and he has appeared in 47 games with two starts during his three-year career with the Jaguars.

Wilson’s career totals on defense include 21 tackles, two passes defensed and one forced fumble, while the special teams ace has also added 16 career special teams tackles.

The Jaguars could have a bigger role in mind for Wilson next season depending on what they decide about the future of free safety Tashaun Gipson. Jacksonville could save $7.45 million by cutting Gipson, via Phillip Heilman of First Coast News.

  1. Gipson’s contract makes him the 10th highest paid safety in terms of average yearly salary. He signed that in 2016 which was before others like Eric Berry signed bigger deals. The question is does his play warrant that much money. They probably overpaid for him when they signed him although he only got a $4M bonus and has no more guaranteed money on his contract. I don’t think he’s top-flight safety so I’ll be surprised if they don’t cut him and either find a cheaper option in the off-season or the draft. Freeing up that money would allow them more cap space to sign a QB, like maybe Nick Foles.
