Saints placed CB Kyle Wilson on injured reserve.

The Saints haven't disclosed his injury. Wilson entered the league as a first-round pick in 2010 but hasn't lived up to expectations. He's logged just four interceptions over 95 career games including one in 15 contests last season. The 28-year-old is headed for free agency after this season.
Jun 24 - 5:02 PM

Saints re-signed CB Kyle Wilson to a one-year contract.

Wilson gave New Orleans quality snaps at slot corner last season and also spent time on special teams. The former Jets first-round draft bust should earn close to the league minimum in 2016. Wilson turns 29 this September.
Mar 7 - 4:48 PM

The Saints have interest in re-signing free agent CB Kyle Wilson.

Wilson played 509 snaps last year, grading out positively in coverage at PFF. He could be brought back to compete for one of the final corner spots with P.J. Williams and Damian Swann. Wilson should settle for the veteran minimum.
Mar 3 - 11:44 AM

Saints CB Kyle Wilson is "on the outside looking in" for a roster spot.

Wilson was outplayed by Delvin Breaux throughout OTAs. The Saints aren’t expected to give up on Stanley Jean-Baptiste after one season, and don’t want to risk stashing fifth-round CB Damian Swann on the practice squad. Signed for the veteran minimum, Wilson needs to win slot duties to avoid getting cut.

Kyle Wilson has been working as the first-team slot corner during Saints OTAs.

Rookie P.J. Williams has been working with the second team. Though Wilson has been mediocre to bad throughout his career, his experience makes him the heavy favorite to open the season at nickel corner. Keenan Lewis and Brandon Browner will man the outside for New Orleans.

The New Orleans Times-Picayune considers Kyle Wilson the frontrunner for the Saints' nickel back job.

Wilson struggled on limited snaps last year, but should provide a veteran presence in the slot. The Saints are going with low-cost options to fill their No. 3 corner spot. Delvin Breaux, Stanley Jean-Baptiste, and Terrence Frederick are also competing for sub-package roles.

Saints signed CB Kyle Wilson, formerly of the Jets, to a one-year contract.

Wilson was the 29th overall pick in the 2010 draft by the Jets. He was an unmitigated disaster in New York and saw his snaps cut back last season even with the Jets desperate for capable corners. Wilson is a slot corner-only at 5-foot-10 and 190 pounds. He'll compete for a roster spot in New Orleans.

ESPN Jets reporter Rich Cimini believes New York is unlikely to retain free agent SCB Kyle Wilson.

The No. 29 overall pick of the 2010 draft, Wilson only played 320 snaps last season. Wilson has already proven he cannot play outside in the NFL, and he is at best a league-average slot corner. He will have to wait until at least the second wave of free agency to find a job. Wilson is Rotoworld's No. 22 available corner.

Kyle Wilson is expected to remain the Jets' nickel corner this season.

Wilson has been mentioned as a possible release candidate, but enters training camp as the favorite to return in the slot. The Newark Star-Ledger projects Dimitri Patterson to start opposite Dee Milliner, with rookie Dexter McDougle, Darrin Walls, and Ras-I Dowling competing for roles in sub packages. 27-year-old Wilson is entering a make-or-break year in 2014.

ESPN New York's Rich Cimini does not believe former first-round CB Kyle Wilson will be re-signed when his contract runs out next March.

That is if he even lasts that long. Wilson's slot corner role will be contested by newly-signed CB Dimitri Patterson, and there have even been rumblings his roster spot is in danger. This is a make-or-break training camp for Wilson.

Jets CB Kyle Wilson may be in danger of losing his slot corner job.

Dmitri Patterson will be a Week 1 starter, but his best position is the slot. Beat writer Rich Cimini suggests Wilson could be demoted and replaced by Patterson inside if one of the Jets' current reserve outside corners (Darrin Walls, Ras-I Dowling, Dexter McDougle) earns a place in New York's nickel package. A 2010 first-round disappointment, Wilson is in his contract year.

ESPN New York suggests Jets CB Kyle Wilson's roster spot could be in jeopardy.

Wilson, the No. 29 overall pick in the 2010 draft, has one year left on his rookie deal and has shown that he's really a slot corner only. The Jets recently signed CB Dimitri Patterson, another slot corner, to a one-year, $3 million deal. "Wilson makes no plays," said an AFC scout. He has just three career interceptions. The Jets will be eyeing cornerback help in next month's draft.

Jets CB Kyle Wilson (concussion) practiced fully Friday and will play in Week 7 against New England.

With Wilson ready and Dee Milliner (hamstring) back, the Jets' secondary will be at full strength for Sunday's matchup with Tom Brady's Patriots.
Fri, Oct 18, 2013 01:41:00 PM

Jets CB Kyle Wilson (concussion) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Patriots.

Wilson sustained the injury during last week's loss to the Steelers. He was replaced by Isaiah Trufant, but the Jets could shake things up this week with Dee Milliner (hamstring) expected to return Week 7.
