Wilson, who visited Jacksonville on Wednesday, spent the last two years in Kansas City. He started 13 games in 2020 and missed three competitions late in the season with a knee injury. He returned in the postseason and started all three games, including the Super Bowl loss to Tampa Bay.
He started all 16 regular season games in 2019 plus three more in the postseason, including the team’s Super Bowl win over San Francisco.
Wilson, who was selected in the Dallas fourth round in 2015, spent his first four years in the NFL with the Cowboys.
Jacksonville is expecting linebackers Myles Jack and Joe Schobert playing in the middle of his revamped defense but wanted to add more depth alongside the sophomore Shaq Quarterman and the third year pro Quincy Williams.
