Former Bills captain George Wilson finds a home with Titans

By Jay Skurski

Former Buffalo Bills safety George Wilson has found a job with the Tennessee Titans.

Wilson, 31, served as a defensive captain for the Bills last season and was an NFL Players' Association team representative. He started all 16 games and finished second on the team with 104 tackles. Wilson, however, registered zero "big plays," finishing the year without an interception, sack, forced fumble or fumble recovery.

His release saved the team $2.925 million against the salary cap.

"George is a quality, veteran player," Titans General Manager Ruston Webster said in a statement released by the team. "He will contribute for us on the field, but his contributions also will come off the field, in the locker room and in the meetings rooms.

"He was respected as a football player and a leader during his career in Buffalo, and he will bring that veteran presence to our team."
