Eagles agreed to terms with OLB Chris Wilson, formerly of the Redskins.

A defensive end/outside linebacker hybrid pass rusher type, the 29-year-old Wilson has six sacks through four seasons and racked up seven special teams tackles last year. He'll try to win a roster spot at strong-side linebacker.

Redskins extended a second-round restricted free agent tender to OLB Chris Wilson.

Redskins re-signed restricted free agent OLB Chris Wilson to a one-year, $1.684 million contract.

Wilson is an athletic pass rusher better suited for the team's new 3-4 scheme. He's set to back up Brian Orakpo and Andre Carter in 2010.

The Redskins have assigned a second-round tender to restricted free agent DE/OLB Chris Wilson.

The Skins were somewhat forced to go high on Wilson's tender because he was originally undrafted, but he should also have a chance at a big role in the team's new 3-4 scheme. Wilson is athletic and can get to the quarterback.

The Redskins have moved Chris Wilson from defensive end to linebacker.

Wilson, who was undersized for an end, had four sacks as a rookie but just one last season. He'll likely back up rookie Brian Orakpo on the strong side.
