NFL Player Agent Alvin Keels reported via his twitter account that his client, Safety Gibril Wilson, has agreed to a one-year contract with the Bengals.
Wilson comes most recently from Miami, where he recorded 72 tackles and a sack in 15 starts. He has been a starter for the majority of his career and has racked up 582 total tackles, 8.5 sacks, 31 passes defensed, 7 forced fumbles and 13 interceptions.
He won a Super Bowl ring as a member of the 2007 Giants.
The team needed help at safety desperately, and while many thought they would nab Earl Thomas, Taylor Mays, or Nate Allen in the draft, the team never selected one. Wilson will provide another veteran presence, and a starting-caliber player to team with incumbents Chris Crocker and Roy Williams, and back-up Chinedum Ndukwe.
