REPORT: Free Agent LB Damien Wilson Joining the Kansas City Chiefs

After the Buffalo Bills signed Wide Receiver Cole Beasley earlier today, the Dallas Cowboys now see their second Unrestricted Free Agent move on after the Kansas City Chiefs signed Linebacker Damien Wilson.

The #Chiefs have agreed to terms with LB Damien Wilson, formerly of the #Cowboys, source said.

This is the second offseason in a row the Kansas City Chiefs have signed a Cowboys LB in free agency. Just a year ago they added Anthony Hitchens, which netted Dallas a fourth-round compensatory pick this year. Maybe history will repeat itself now that Damien Wilson is joining his former teammate in Kansas City.

Wilson was unfortunately never a big part of the equation during his time in Dallas. The strong side linebacker position in the Cowboys 4-3 defense isn’t heavily involved except when they are in their base package. When they went to their nickel and dime defense he was taken off the field.

With the Chiefs, Damien Wilson now has the opportunity to prove he can be an every down linebacker in the NFL. It’s an opportunity he wouldn’t have received with the Cowboys, even if they would’ve been able to re-sign him.

Good luck from all of us around Cowboys Nation, Damien! Except when you’re playing the Dallas Cowboys of course.

What do you think?
