Jaguars released QB John Parker Wilson.

The former Alabama quarterback has bounced around the league for four years, but has yet to appear in a regular season game. Going on 28, Wilson is about out of time in the NFL.

Jaguars waived QB John Parker Wilson.

Wilson was on the roster for one week while Blaine Gabbert nursed a labral tear in his non-throwing shoulder. The Jaguars will move forward with two QBs.

Jaguars signed QB John Parker Wilson off the team's practice squad.

Wilson spent his first three seasons on Atlanta's practice squad before getting waived by the team in August. His promotion by Jacksonville comes as insurance behind Blaine Gabbert (left shoulder) and Chad Henne.

Falcons waived QB John Parker Wilson.

Wilson spent the first three seasons of his career bouncing around the Falcons' practice squad. It's a bad sign that he was never able to beat out the underwhelming Chris Redman for the backup job. The Falcons have tabbed undrafted rookie Dominique Davis as a developmental third quarterback.

Falcons promoted QB John Parker Wilson from their practice squad and waived DT Carlton Powell.

The Vikings, whose offense is run by ex-Falcons QBs coach Bill Musgrave, were trying to sign Wilson to be their third-stringer behind Christian Ponder and Joe Webb. Minnesota would've been a better long-term landing spot for Wilson, but he's staying down south. He's No. 3 behind Matt Ryan and Chris Redman.
Fri, Dec 2, 2011 01:31:00 PM

Falcons waived QB J.P. Wilson, CB Brett Romberg, OG Jose Valdez, OT Andrew Jackson, LB Robert James, WRs Kevin Cone and Drew Davis, S Rafael Bush, DE Emmanuel Stephens, and TE Ryan Winterswyk.

Winterswyk, a defensive end at Boise State, was released with an injury settlement. Wilson is the surprise cut; the Falcons will roll with just two quarterbacks on their Week 1 roster. They are Matt Ryan and Chris Redman.

John Parker Wilson (concussion) returned to Falcons practice on Sunday.

Wilson was inactive for Atlanta's preseason game against the Jaguars on Friday. He does not appear to be facing a challenge for the Falcons' third-string job from undrafted rookie Adam Froman, who did not make an appearance against the Jags.
Sun, Aug 21, 2011 10:14:00 AM

Falcons' third-string QB John Parker Wilson has been diagnosed with a concussion.

He's likely to miss the second preseason game. Wilson was expected to face some competition from undrafted rookie Adam Froman for the Falcons' third-string job, but he soundly outplayed Froman in Atlanta's preseason opener.

Falcons signed Alabama QB John Parker Wilson.

Wilson lacks size and arm-strength, but scouts love his intangibles and leadership ability. He'd be a better fit on a West Coast offense. As it is, Wilson is likely ticketed for the practice squad with Chris Redman and D.J. Shockley ahead of him on the depth chart.
Tue, Apr 28, 2009 11:48:00 AM

Three scouts told NFL Network's Charles Davis that they like Alabama QB J.P. Wilson as a "second-day guy" with potential.

Scouts cited Wilson's intangibles and leadership skills. Though his stats were weak, Wilson went through three offensive coordinators for the Crimson Tide and never got comfortable. He's still probably only backup material.
Mon, Mar 2, 2009 11:33:00 PM

Alabama QB John Parker Wilson reportedly "struggled mightily" during passing drills at the NFL Combine.

A borderline free agent prospect at this point, the 6'1/215-pound Wilson will likely only fit in a West Coast scheme. His TD to INT ratio was 9:7 last year.
Sun, Feb 22, 2009 03:52:00 PM

Alabama QB John Parker Wilson checked in at 6'1/215 at the Senior Bowl weigh-in.

He's an inch shorter than expected. Average arm strength and lack of ideal size will likely keep Wilson from going in the first five rounds this April.
