Even though Pacman Jones is getting all the publicity, the Bengals also brought in veteran safety Gibril Wilson for workout on Tuesday. Geoff Hobson writes that Wilson has "started 80 games for three clubs since the Giants drafted him in the fifth round out of Tennessee in 2004."
Last year, the Miami Dolphins signed Wilson to a five-year contract worth $27.5 million with $8 million guaranteed. He was scheduled to make $12 million over the first two years and $16.5 million during the first three years on the contract. He was released on March 5, 2010. Even more, Wilson signed a six-year deal worth $39 million with the Oakland Raiders.
Trend here is that Wilson signed a massive contract and was released the following season in 2008 and 2009.
UPDATE: PFT writes that there's a "greater than 50 percent" chance that the Bengals sign Wilson. According to Mike Florio, no aggreement has ben reached but it seems very likely to happen soon.
