The New Orleans Saints have signed former Jets first round draft pick Kyle Wilson to a one year deal.  Wilson was largely seen as a disappointment in New York.  Perhaps the biggest indictment of his play came in 2014, when he was never considered for a role on the outside despite the Jets starting Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum for most of the year at the outside cornerback slots.

The Jets never apparently showed any interest in bringing Wilson back in  2015, and the writing was on the wall after the slew of upgrades at the position signed by GM Mike Maccagnan in the early days of free agency.

Wilson ends his Jets career with 80 games played, 28 starts, three interceptions, 139 tackles, 20 assists, and multiple years leading the league in trash talking an opponent after an errant pass Wilson had nothing to do with.  It is possible Wilson will look back fondly on his days with the Jets.  On second thought, scratch that.  Wilson never looks back on anything, ever.
