Jaguars Sign Linebacker Rod Wilson to Contract

The Jacksonville Jaguars signed veteran linebacker Rod Wilson to a contract today.  The Jaguars waived rookie wide receiver Derrick Townsel to make room on the roster.

Wilson, 6-2, 230, has spent time with the Chicago Bears and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.  He has played in 36 games since entering the NFL as a seventh-round draft pick of Chicago in 2005, and produced 30 special teams tackles and 12 tackles on defense.

A native of Cross, S.C., Wilson played in eight games for the Buccaneers in 2009 before he was placed on injured reserve.  He produced a career-high 16 special teams tackles for the Bears in 2007.

Wilson was a four-year letterman at South Carolina where he played four different positions: quarterback, wide receiver, safety and linebacker.  He earned second-team All-SEC honors as a senior linebacker after finishing with a team-high 68 tackles.  He played football, basketball, baseball and track at Cross High School.

Wilson will wear number 43.
