Upon being released by the Buffalo Bills after seven years with the team, veteran safety George Wilson hit the road to hear what teams wanted to offer him.
One of the stops was a visit to his old defensive coordinator Jerry Gray, head coach Mike Munchak and senior assistant Gregg Williams in Tennessee.
“Jerry had an opportunity to see me grind and work day in and day out and he has followed my career,’’ Wilson said , via Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean.
“He said as soon as he saw me hit the waiver wire he went right to the main man and requested that they at least take a look at me. I had a great visit with everybody in Tennessee, and an opportunity to sit down with Gregg Williams and talk about his vision for the Tennessee Titans defense next season and what his mind-set was. And I had a great sit down with Coach Munchak and him giving me an expectation of me would be and what type of environment and culture he tries to set around the facility. Everything was definitely very positive.”
Wilson thinks he would be a good fit with the Titans. “I definitely think it is a good fit with everything Jerry Gray and Coach Williams envision for the defense next season,’’ he said. “They want to take the defense a step further by adding some veteran leadership and depth at positions and they certainly expressed a desire to have me as a piece of their puzzle. They made it quite clear what they are looking for from me, and I think I fit the bill for what they are looking for as well.
