Josh Wilson DB WAS 1 Month
The Redskins are not expected to re-sign free agent CB Josh Wilson.
Wilson started all 16 games opposite DeAngelo Hall this past season and moved into the slot in nickel packages, but he proved to be a big part of the Redskins' coverage problems. Washington wants to give second-year CB David Amerson a chance to earn significantly more playing time. Wilson turns 29 in March and will likely struggle to find multi-year contract offers.

The Redskins have reportedly not asked CB Josh Wilson to restructure his contract.
It's a mild surprise considering the Redskins' extremely cumbersome cap situation. Wilson carries a $5.33M cap hit in 2013, the final year of his current contract. He was a 16-game starter a year ago in the league's third-worst pass defense.

CSN Washington reports the Redskins may approach CB Josh Wilson about a contract extension.
Wilson signed a three-year deal prior to the 2011 season, so he's entering the final year of his contract. The problem is that he carries a $5.33 million cap hit for 2013, so Washington may want to extend him and reduce the charge. Wilson started all 16 games in 2012, racking up 74 tackles and 13 passes defensed.
