Bengals Announce Signing Of Safey Gibril WIlson

According to Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com, the Cincinnati Bengals announced the re-signing of free agent safety Gibril Wilson Saturday afternoon. Wilson was signed as a free agent last year, but suffered a torn knee ligament (ACL) and was placed on Injured Reserve missing the entire preseason and regular season.

Before signing with the Bengals, Wilson was a very productive six-year career as a safety with the New York Giants, Oakland Raiders and Miami Dolphins, posting 600 tackles, 8.5 quarterback sacks, 13 interceptions, 31 passes defensed, seven forced fumbles and six fumbles recoveries.

The signing of Wilson Saturday morning isn't meant as a means for the team to hoist Lombardi trophy this year. But it does help with the depth, provided he's able to fully recover from a serious knee injury. Chris Crocker and Reggie Nelson are expected to start at safety this year, with Robert Sands and Jeromy Miles in the mix with Wilson.
