Last week, in a poll run here, nearly half of the voting community at Buffalo Rumblings - 49% - voted that the Buffalo Bills should not re-sign strong safety Donte Whitner. From surveying comments, the biggest reason behind that result was Whitner's reported free agent asking price, as opposed to overall performance.
In light of those poll results, we thought we'd bring up Buffalo's other free agent safety as the subject of a similar poll: George Wilson.
Coming off of a career year in 2009, Wilson was relegated to reserve and spot duty defensively, and as usual, he produced when called upon. Wilson recorded 17 tackles and two interceptions (tied for second on the team) in 2010, and also led the Bills with 18 special teams tackles and a forced fumble as that unit's captain.
Wilson, who will turn 30 one month from today, has 202 tackles, 3.5 sacks and eight interceptions in four years as a Bills safety. We have a hunch that we know which way the poll is headed, but it's up anyway; we'd also love to hear your thoughts on whether or not you believe Wilson can be a starting-caliber strong safety if Whitner leaves.
