Those eyebrows now can return to their normal furrow.
Wilson struggled mightily throughout the summer and was outplayed by undrafted rookie Matt McGloin. Wilson's status as a fourth-round pick seemed to be the only reason he made it past Saturday, but he couldn't dodge the axe once the waiver wire opened. By cutting Wilson, Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie was willing to admit he missed badly on the pick.
Even with Wilson's poor preseason performance, there is a good chance he will be claimed or stashed on a practice squad so he can develop.
