Bills Sign George Wilson, Mansfield Wrotto To Contract Extensions

When the Buffalo Bills released a list of tendered free agents this afternoon, a notable name missing from the tender list was safety George Wilson. Some here speculated it was because Wilson was on the verge of a contract extension. Wilson has confirmed that theory via Twitter, while another Bills free agent, tackle/guard Mansfield Wrotto, also received an extension according to the team's official website.

Earlier today, Wilson tweeted this cryptic message to his followers: "What an exciting day thus far!? I will share the day's news once I get thru customs when I arrive back in Atlanta."

Once he landed, he sent another message to his followers with the news of a brand new three-year deal: "I want to let all Bills fans know that today I signed a 3 year contract to return to western NY. Words just can't explain".

Wilson has been a steady performer for the Bills, and was a special teams captain in 2010. He's started 26 games over six seasons with Buffalo, and in 2010 made 13 tackles while picking off two passes. Wilson could be next in line to start at the safety position should Donte Whitner not re-sign with the club once free agency begins.

"I'm definitely relieved," Wilson told the Associated Press shortly after signing. "I have a home here and there was so much uncertainty out there with 500 free agents, it was a matter of both us finding a common ground we're both comfortable with."

Wrotto started seven games for the Bills in 2010 after being signed to the active roster on October 4. He spent the previous four years of his career with the Seattle Seahawks.

"The coaches along with myself see me as an interior player who can also play the tackle position," Wrotto told BuffaloBills.com this afternoon. "The more you can do in this league the better."
