A sixth-round pick out of A&M in the 2019 draft, Wilson started all 17 games for the Cowboys in 2022 while playing 84% of the team’s defensive snaps. He recorded 101 tackles with seven tackles for a loss, nine QB hits, and 5.0 sacks.
Wilson also had an interception, two forced fumbles, and a fumble recovery for The Boys last season.
The former Aggies safety spent four seasons in College Station, recording 199 solo tackles, including 21.5 for a loss, and 5.0 sacks. He also finished with eight interceptions and four forced fumbles.
Wilson proved to be incredibly valuable to Dan Quinn’s defense, which relies heavily on a three-safety look. In retaining the former Aggie, the Cowboys’ defensive coordinator will have his top three safeties from last year back in 2023 alongside Jayron Kearse and Malik Hooker.
