The Buffalo Bills signed safety George Wilson to a contract extension March 1. Today, while the safety is spending his time in Italy, more contract details have been leaked, and we have a bit more insight into how much of a commitment the Bills have made in him.

Mark Gaughan of the Buffalo News reported yesterday afternoon that Wilson's deal totals $7.05M for the previously announced three years of the deal. He also reiterated the $4.75M in base salaries that we had previously discussed via Rotoworld.

With an average of just $2.35M over each year of the contract, the team has secured a key special teams contributor and potential starting safety in the wake of Donte Whitner's impending free agency. Whitner is expected to demand at least twice the average salary reflected in Wilson's numbers.

Wilson, Jairus Byrd, Bryan Scott and Jon Corto are all under contract at the safety position for 2011.
