The Atlanta Falcons announced Sunday that they’ve officially re-signed S J.J. Wilcox following his clearance of the COVID-19 testing protocol.
Tom Pelissero of NFL Media reports that the Falcons are expected to re-sign veteran S J.J. Wilcox after he visited with the team on Thursday.
Wilcox is working his way back from a torn ACL he suffered last year.
Wilcox, 29, is a former third-round pick of the Cowboys back in 2013. He played out his four-year, $2,811,068 contract with the Cowboys before signing a two-contract with the Buccaneers worth up to $8.5 million.
The Buccaneers traded him to the Steelers at the start of the 2017 season for a 2018 sixth-round pick. Wilcox was set to make a base salary of $3.125 million for the 2018 season when the Steelers released him.
Wilcox had brief stints with the Colts and Jets before signing on with the Falcons last year.
In 2018, Wilcox appeared in five games for the Jets and two games for the Colts. He recorded six tackles and no interceptions.
