The Philadelphia Eagles signed free agent tight end Kris Wilson to a three-year contract Wednesday.|||||||
Wilson caught 42 passes for 345 yards and four touchdowns in four seasons with Kansas City, where he played tight end, fullback and H-back. Wilson will play tight end for Philadelphia, which already has three on its roster - L.J. Smith, Matt Schobel and Brent Celek. The team placed the franchise tag on Smith, the team's top tight end, earlier in the offseason.
Nursing a thigh problem, Wilson has been placed on injured reserve by the Kansas City Chiefs. The second-year tight end, who will miss the rest of the season, sat out the majority of the 2004 campaign with a broken leg. Reciever Craphonso Thorpe was signed to fill the void on the roster.|||||||
Wilson appeared in 14 games this season, but hauled in just three passes for 33 yards. He has no fantasy value.
