He was signed to a multi-year deal.

Wilson was recently released to create cap space for the Bills, he started all 16 games in 2012.

Since becoming a starter in 2009, Wilson recorded 10 INTs, 2 sacks and 3 different 100+ tackles seasons.

No safety in the 1st round.

I think we will still draft one in the mid rounds. Because the depth at the position sucks.

Definitely an upgrade from Babs.

Not sure I like it. We needed to get younger and quicker at the safety position.

Random article about George Wilson the newest Titan!

https://www.profootballfocus.com/blog/2011/03/10/secret-superstar-george-wilson-buffalo-bills/

Quote:
When you think of safety play in the Billsí 2009 season, youíre likely to think of one man: Jairus Byrd. The rookie free safety sat deep and recorded more than his share of interceptions Ö nine of them to be exact. Enough that it earned him a selection to the Pro Bowl, All Rookie team and 2nd team All Pro Honors.

But while Byrd was picking off passes, Wilson was quietly showing himself to be one of the most well-rounded safeties in the league. It wasnít unnoticed by the Bills who, even when changing coaches, kept faith with Wilson. Rewarding this trust, he led the Bills safeties in defensive snaps, defensive stops, and quarterback pressures.

So good was Wilson that we graded him positively in every area of his play. That included penalties, where he wasnít flagged once, and blitzing where he turned just 19 rushes into two sacks, two hits, and a hurry. Still, the best from Wilson came in the main areas of safety play: in run support and in coverage.

Finishing 12th in our safety coverage rankings and 16th in run support, we had Wilson ranked third overall on a list headed by Ed Reed. High praise indeed, and it was a unanimous decision to elect him to our AFC Pro Bowl squad.

The numbers alone made a good case for those who didnít see Wilson play. He missed just five tackles, didnít allow a single touchdown in coverage (just 122 yards in total) and intercepted four passes. However you want to dice it, Wilson had an exceptional year. While some prefer safeties that get themselves into the highlight reel, weíll take the guy who makes a pile of plays and avoids mistakes.

Great signing add leadership and consistency to our defense. Could be a big help for Griffin and it allows us to draft a safety in the 2nd or 3rd and take our time bringing them along. Anyone who thinks this is a bad signing you know nothing about this guy, he is a true leader and a great football player.

Again, if the guy got benched in Buffalo, why did we make a big push?

I'll remain optimistic, though. Nice to at least see us trying to improve.

I want to see what Markelle Martin can do, however. He was TOUGH in college.

Well, I'm not upset with this signing at all. At the very least, we'll have a Safety on the roster who can actually tackle for a change.

Define great. Even in his prime, he wasn't great. He was an above average safety. I'll give you leadership but not a great football player. Bills fans theirselves even said he was on the downfall. 2 or 3 years ago, it would be a great signing. Now, it's just a blah signing. Definitely gives us leadership in our secondary but not sure it improves our team on the field. Still think safety should be a priority in rounds 2-3.

If anything, maybe he will push the guys around him to be better.
