These players will revert back to the practice squad on Monday without having to clear waivers.
McGill, 27, originally signed on with the Seahawks as an undrafted free agent out of North Carolina State back in 2015. He lasted just a few months in Seattle before he was claimed off of waivers by the Colts.
McGill had had brief stints with the Browns, Chiefs, Chargers and Eagles before the Chargers claimed him off waivers near the end of 2018. Los Angeles waived McGill at the end of the preseason and he signed on with Washington last year.
From there, McGill returned to the Chargers before eventually joining the Saints late last season. He had signed with the Eagles this offseason before being released and later re-signed to the practice squad. He’s bounced on and off Philadelphia’s taxi squad this season.
In 2020, McGill has appeared in two games and recorded one tackle and half of a sack.
Wilson, 24, is a former seventh-round pick by the Cardinals in the 2019 NFL Draft out of UCLA. He was in the first year of his four-year, $2.6 million rookie contract when Arizona cut him loose coming out of last year’s preseason and he re-signed with their practice squad.
Washington wound up claiming him off Arizona’s practice squad in December but was waived back in August. He was quickly claimed by the Eagles but was cut loose coming out of training camp and re-signed to Philadelphia’s taxi squad.
During his college career at UCLA, Wilson recorded 114 receptions for 1,675 yards receiving (14.7 YPC) and five touchdowns.
