G. Wilson
In a move that all but confirms the end of Donte Whitner’s run in Buffalo, Mark Gaughan of the Buffalo News learned that the Bills re-signed safety George Wilson to a three-year deal last week.

The deal is worth a total of $7.05 million, including $4.75 million in base salaries over the three years.

Wilson is not a name player around the NFL, but his productivity as an eighth defender in the box makes him Buffalo’s best run-defending defensive back. That said, he was paid either modest starter money or big-time backup money because he’s by no means a star. (A large portion of his tackles come downfield.)

I thought overall it actually was most probably to obtain a small amount of unexciting good old article, but it really without doubt routinely settled in support of time.

wow, bonadrag, is the drag in your name for dragging down all hope in life?  Should someone call help for you?  You are hte most miserable person I think on this board.  95% of the teams don't win the Super Bowl each year, and a Super Bowl isn't won with 1 signing.  I don't think resigning Wilson was the key to their offseason and I'd rather give Gailey and Nix a little more credit seeing as though your basis of argument is off of a past ownership.  yes these guys drafted CJ Spiller but they also made a move that the old regime would not do, which is get rid of a problem cancer in the locker room, aka Lynch.  Teams that win in the NFL now adays don't win with 1 back.  They have a primary back but they have other guys that bring other dimentions to the game.  Fred Jackson is a good every down back but CJ Spiller adds a burst of energy that over time could payoff big.  I think he can be a lot like REggie Bush, not quite a first round pick, but a game changer with 1 play.  That said, this isn't the Sabres owned by Pegula, they have a budget they have to stick to because they run a team in a poor city, if you don't understand that, maybe you should open up your own pocket book a little more and buy some additional seats to help fund a better team

You have to give it to George Wilson, he wasn't a big name guy at any point in his career.  The guy played as a wide receiver when he came out of college.  To convert to safety and still be in the league several years later is pretty impressive.  I am glad they re-signed him.

I wonder how many Bills games Andy Benoit actually watched?  I like George Wilson more than Donte Whitner.  Just because you don't know him, doesn't make him a lesser player than Donte.  I'll take an underrated guy over an overrated one anyday

This is a great signing for Buffalo. Like most years, I'm sure they will do nothing to address their run defense up front or other obvious issues via the draft or free agency (but will likely have a fresh stockpile of RBs again). So we can expect another year of terrible run defense, needing a good guy to make tackles down the field after the opposition rips through the line for massive chunks of yards. Wilson is good at that, so...I guess, nice signing Ralph.
