    Kyle Wilson is history

    From overthecap.com

    Great analysis:

    Kyle Wilson should earn an escalator in his contract that increases his salary to slightly over $3 million which
    may be a bit steep for a player whose upside is nothing more than a nickel corner. The Jets could opt for
    a low cost extension or an outright release of the former first round pick. Nothing is guaranteed in his
    contract so they could wait things out with him since salary cap space would not appear to be tight.

    I don't know if he just wasn't on the field but I can't recall him getting burned during the last 6 games.

    He wasn't and played pretty well.

    He's just one of those guys on the team who could make the pro bowl and people here would want to cut while calling him a complete jag

    I feel like I didn't really see him at all in December. Did he lose playing time or did he cover so well that teams stopped targeting him?

    Yup. When your first round corner pans out to be an average nickel, the fans will not be happy regardless.

    I don't think we will have to worry about Kyle Wilson making the Pro Bowl anytime soon.

    Only three career INTs and 17 PDs.

    He banged up a knee in the Dolphins game and wasn't on the field much -- only 8 snaps. Other than that he averaged about 30 snaps per game in December:

    But he won't make the Pro Bowl and he is a complete JAG, so I'm good with the Jets cutting him if it saves valuable cap dollars. What would you prefer?

    To put that into context, Milliner had 3 INT's and 10 PD's in the last two weeks of the season alone.

    Yet there are some who still swear up and down that Wilson isn't a bust.

    I still wouldn't call him a bust. He's not good but no one from the bottom third of that draft has really done much.

    Misleading thread title. Makes you think we already released him.

    I think we are going to do exactly what Jason said. Hang on to him unless we need the cap room. Also see how things unfold in FA and the draft. Its obvious the Jets view him as nothing more than a 3rd or 4th CB which is disappointing considering he was a 1st rounder. No other way to slice it.

    It's still pretty crazy when a rookie CB basically matches his 4 year production in a matter of two weeks.

    No arguments there UT. I just don't think it's possible to have a real bust with the 30th overall pick.

    Oy vey. Victo Cruz says hello and it was goodbye to the 2011 season. Honorable mention to Cro on that play too.

    He isn't a bust. Nickel corner is a big deal in a passing league. Wilson has done a hell of a job.Did a good job last year, filling in for Revis.

    Oh please, stop it. Every corner gets burned. Including revis, Peterson, talib, etc, etc.Cromartie took a bad angle and whiffed, not wilson. Wilson is one of the best tacklers on the team.

    He has slightly improved over the yrs.. But surely did not live up to expectations.. He is a pretty decent nickelback, but nickelbacks don't make 3 mil as far as I know.. Cut him and try to resign him for 1 mil..

    I thought he played well last year after the Revis injury.
