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

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

This is the second in a row the Kansas City Chiefs have signed a Cowboys LB in . Just a year ago they added , which netted Dallas a fourth-round compensatory pick this year. Maybe 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 isn't heavily involved except when they are in their base package. When they went to their nickel and dime 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 , Damien! Except when you're playing the Dallas Cowboys of course.

We will have to pick up another LB either in FA or the draft now. Who’s on the roster that can fill this spot? Joe Thomas? Anyone have any idea?

second-year LB Chris Covington, Joe Thomas, and maybe even Jaylon Smith when they are in their base defense. I wouldn’t worry about it too much. The Cowboys have the LBs on the roster to get the job done


Good to know. Thanks for the answer, Brian.
