Redskins Sign CB Josh Wilson

The Redskins have apparently found Carlos Rogers replacement today as they inked former Maryland CB Josh Wilson to a 3 year $13.5 million deal. Wilson was a former 2nd round pick of the Seattle Seahawks, who was traded last season to the Baltimore Ravens for a 5th round draft pick. 

Wilson had an up-and-down Seahawk career, but turned in a fantastic campaign with the Ravens last season. He was rated the 5th best overall corner according to Pro Football Focus, and his 46.9% completion percentage against, ranked 10th in the league. 

Wilson profiles as a good number two corner and should be usually matched up against quicker/smaller wide receivers. Look for him to be moved inside to the slot position, when opponents go 3 wide. While there are some concerns about his size and his average performance before last year, I think he is is well worth the investment by the Redskins. 

At just 26 years of age, Wilson is an absolute steal at $4.5 million a year, and should make Redskins fans quite happy with his ability to catch the football. He is considered a high character guy, with strong local ties and should be a quick fan favorite (also he isn't a Wide Receiver).
