Redskins re-sign special teams help in Chris Wilson

The Washington Redskins have re-signed veteran linebacker Chris Wilson, bringing back a player that could serve as a core contributor for special teams coach Danny Smith.

Wilson has played in all 48 games the past three seasons and has also contributed five sacks as an occasional defensive end and pass rusher. This past season, he made 13 tackles and had one sack while making eight stops (six solo) on special teams.

He originally broke into professional football in the CFL playing for the British Columbia Lions from 2005 to 2006. Bringing back Wilson is a low-cost measure that makes good sense for the Redskins who need to improve the core of their special teams.
