Wilson signed with the Bucs as an undrafted free agent out of Duke last season, but was placed on injured reserved in November after suffering a season ending shoulder injury.
He made the initial 53-man roster out of training camp, finding a role on the team as a kick returner on special teams. Playing in a limited amount of time in five games, he returned seven kicks for 122 yards, averaging 17.4 yards per return.
Wilson also carried the ball six times for a total of 29 yards, and had three catches for five yards. He did not participate in any offseason practices at OTA’s or mini-camp due to another injury that was not stated during that time.
The remaining running backs on the roster consist of Peyton Barber, Ronald Jones, Andre Ellington, Dare Ogunbowale, and rookie Bruce Anderson.
