Another member of the Minnesota Vikings will be suiting up for another team in 2021, and he’ll be joining one of his teammates from last season.

According to Mike Garafolo of the NFL Network, linebacker Eric Wilson will be joining Anthony Harris as a member of the Philadelphia Eagles. He’s signing a one-year deal worth up to $3.25 million.

Wilson signed with the Vikings as an undrafted free agent out of Cincinnati in 2017 and spent four seasons with the Vikings, never missing a game during his time in purple. He started out as a special teamer and slowly got more work on the defensive side of the ball. This past season, thanks in large part to the injury suffered by Anthony Barr, Wilson started 15 games for the Vikings. He racked up three interceptions and eight passes defended along with a team-leading 122 tackles.

With Barr and Eric Kendricks both on big contracts and the team just having signed Nick Vigil in free agency, the writing was sort of on the wall that Wilson would probably be moving on, and that’s exactly what has happened.

What do you think of Eric Wilson moving on to a new team, folks?
