Head coach Mike Norvell confirmed the news on Monday.
Wilson had been lauded for his blocking ability, and had figured to be a significant part of the tight end room.
From our scouting report:
Wilson plays the TE position with an old-school mindset. He’s willing to get his hands dirty as an in-line blocker. You’ll notice he’s more comfortable running routes, but Wilson’s a capable blocker. Wilson bends well in his lower half, but plays a little upright at times and his base can get wide. Against defensive ends and linebackers he still manages a stalemate or movement, which is good to see. Wilson will be asked to play as an in-line blocker and should fit that role nicely. He’ll need to continue improving, but shows hope as his PFF run-blocking grades have climbed from 2017 to 2019.
