Wilson, 24, is a former second-round pick by the Colts back in 2017. After three seasons in Indianapolis, the Colts traded him to the Jets this past April for a sixth-round pick.
Wilson is in the final year of his four-year rookie contract and set to make a base salary of $1,251,310 for the 2020 season. However, the Jets elected to cut him loose last week.
In 2020, Wilson has appeared in three games for the Jets and recorded one total tackle and no interceptions.
We had him included in our Top 100 Available 2020 Free Agents list.
Mizzell, 27, wound up going undrafted out of Virginia back in 2017 before catching on with the Baltimore Ravens. The team later opted to waive him and he was signed to the Bears’ practice squad.
The Bears later promoted Mizzell to their active roster where he got his first taste of NFL action. Prior to the 2019 season, he switched from running back to receiver but was unfortunately among the team’s final roster cuts.
After being waived by Chicago, Mizzell signed on with the Saints’ practice squad and signed a futures contract with them at the start of 2020. He again ended up being among the final roster cuts prior to the start of the season.
In 2018, Mizzell appeared in nine games for the Bears and had nine carries for 16 yards to go with eight catches for 78 yards and one touchdown.
