Wilkinson, 27, wound up going undrafted out of Massachusetts back in 2017. He later signed on with the Broncos, but was waived coming out of the preseason and later re-signed to their practice squad.

Wilkinson played under exclusive rights tenders for two seasons before returning to the Broncos on a one-year, restricted tender worth $3.27 million for the 2020 season. The Bears signed him to a contract last March and he subsequently caught on with the Falcons this offseason. 

In 2022, Wilkinson has appeared in and started seven games for the Falcons at tackle.
