The hard hitting safety, and long-time Cardinal, is now going to be looking at new openings after the Patriots release him come this Saturday. Arizona won't be calling again after discovering the potential of the Honey Badger.
Wilson was a big free agent acquisition but it hasn't panned out. The youth movement in Foxboro is a sign of a new age for the Patriots. With Duron Harmon being drafted along with the preseason emergence of Tavon Wilson it seems that youth is now the emphasis of the Patriots.
The Pats will release Wilson for three reasons:
-Adrian is slow and not aggressive in his tackling. Honestly, Wilson looked lost all Pre-season.
- He cannot stop the youth infusion of the Patriots. Tavon Wilson is showing his worth and with his potential, the sky is the limit.
-Aging. Wilson will be entering his 10th+ year in the league and if your not as durable as Ed Reed your retirement party will be planned for you.
In tonight's game Wilson recorded two tackles and looked out of place as he played on deep into the 3rd quarter which isn't a good sign. Just ask Brandon Meriweather.
It's sad to see such a high profile free agent signing such as Wilson go but it seems as if his body has become an issue and youth has overtaken this team and the league.
