Chiefs sign Albert Wilson to one-year deal
The Chiefs re-signed what has been a frequent contributor to their offense over the last three seasons, slot receiver Albert Wilson. The deal was for one-year, $1.797 million.
- After losing snaps (down to 489 in 2016 from 802 in 2015) to second-year player Chris Conley and rookie Tyreek Hill, Wilson was only able catch 33 of 53 targets a season ago.
- His average depth of target was just 7.5 yards, ranking near the bottom of the league’s receivers and contributed to Wilson earning the second-lowest yards per route run (0.60) among qualifying slot receivers a season ago.
- He remains valuable on special teams, though, where he played 162 snaps, graded positively, and added a 50-yard touchdown run on a fake punt against the Falcons.
