My issue with Wilson is that I just don't know what EXTRA he brings to the team. He's capable of playing the position I suppose, but he NEVER makes the extra effort to bring in the tough catch, and he NEVER makes a big play after receiving the ball.

We'd be far better off in the long run trying to develop guys who have the potential to be special.

Wilson needs to be dumped. DAT/Hill can pick up his slack. Still baffled by the Streater trade......
I would argue that once acclimated, Demarcus Robinson works his way in this season.

just go with more Jmac, Conley, and multi-TEs. With guys like Hill and DAT? coming in from time to time, there's no need to ever see Albert W on the field.

I'd still argue that he's solid and not holding the team back any more than Alex's risk-aversion, Reid's play calling, etc.

He creates space because he's an option. Not because he's a weapon. I agree it helps to have a jet sweep option, but you have to have someone who can actually do some damage with the ball in his hands.

I saw Wilson create space by running out of bounds as fast as possible to avoid tacklers on that WR screen. I means seriously, it's just not worth gaining a few yards if it means getting tackled.

They need to stick to 2 TE sets. Keep Kelce and Harris in with Conley and Maclin on the outside and Ware in the backfield.

Isn't that what they're doing with Hill? Hill is eventually going to take Wilsons role when he's ready but as of now, Wilson is the best option at the #3 right now and he gets the 5th most targets after Maclin, Kelce, Conley, and Ware/RB. I don't have a problem with him right now. Whoever is in that role is going to have limited production because of the other guys around him.

Like I said, it seems like they're grooming Hill to eventually take his spot, I don't have any problem with that. I also don't have a problem with our 5th receiving option being a guy who had 500 yards last year and averaged 12.9 yards per catch.

I don't think you are being unreasonable. It's not that big a deal. I'm just unable to shake free from the memories of short arming passes, and running out of bounds too quickly. I'd rather us give a guy like Demetrius Harris or DAT/HILL more targets.

He has eight targets in two games, good for just five catches for 12 yards. Pro Football Focus had him graded out as the worst slot receiver in Week 1.

When is Andy Reid going to move on from this kid? Put DAT or Hill in and at least a team has to game plan for one of them, Streater would of been a better option, but as long as we get some production out of the slot I'd be happy at this point.

We still need to upgrade his position, but we sure needed this while Maclin was/is out.

Iím a Foster Kid in the NFL
DEC 5 2016
ALBERT WILSON
WIDE RECEIVER / KANSAS CITY CHIEFS

Growing up in the foster system can make you feel like youíre living life at a disadvantage. I know because Iíve done it.

I was in Floridaís foster system twice ó for a year starting when I was six, and then for six years starting when I was 12.

My girlfriend asks me all the time how I dealt with spending so much time in foster care. And I always tell her that I just didnít know there was any other way. To me, all of it ó foster care, my parents being in jail, moving from house to house to house to house ó was normal.

And you know what? I was lucky.

Some foster kids donít know their parents. Some have parents who want nothing to do with them. And some have already lost their parents. Mine were in jail, but they were both still part of my life. They helped raise me ó I talked with them regularly on the phone or through the mail.

Iíd had family right by me all
along, I just didnít know it.

This allowed us to have a unique relationship. It was like I could tell them anything. I also learned from them their example very early on. People make mistakes ó and there are consequences for those mistakes.

I was also lucky because of two amazing foster families: the Baileys and the Browns.

http://media.theplayerstribune.com/uploads/IMG_6005-512x768.jpg
COURTESY OF ALBERT WILSON

I went to live with the Baileys when I was in the 10th grade. They had eight children, all adopted. Two of them, Josh and Chelsea, were right around my age, and over time I grew so close to them that I began calling them my brother and sister. We did all the small, silly things siblings do.

Back then I was rocking some really long hair, and Chelsea would braid it. Iíd sit on the carpet while she sat above me on the couch and braid my hair. That was one of my favorite things ó simple, but meaningful. It made me feel like I was at home.

The Baileys were my family. Their house was a place I felt safe ó even happy. They showed me a side of family I hadnít seen before, one where everyone was living at the same pace ó and in the same place.

With the Baileys, an adult was always waiting for us at home whenever we got back from school. And there was structure to life. We had to get our homework done before we could do anything else. We all watched TV together and ate meals together. It wasnít picture-perfect, but at least we all seemed to be living in the same time zone.

Then there were the Browns.

One of my best friends in high school was a kid named Moe Brown. I had spent the night at his house a bunch of times and grown pretty close to his family. One winter break his mom, Sherri, who knew my situation, invited me to go to Orlando with the whole family for Moeís younger brotherís soccer tournament. I immediately agreed.

Two days before we left, Moe and I were coming back from the grocery store when he started talking about South Carolina.

I said, ďDude, youíve never been to South Carolina, you donít know nothing about it.Ē

ďBoy, my whole family is from Maysville,Ē he said.

My eyes widened. Maysville is a really, really small town where everybody knows everybody. My dadís entire family is from Maysville.

I told Moe, and he started rattling off the names of people he knew, including members of his family. Some of those names were really familiar, because they were also the names of members of my family.

Wait a second. If your cousins are my cousins, too, that meansÖ.

Yup. The Browns were my cousins. Iíd had family right by me all along, I just didnít know it.

It wasnít long after that that the Browns got certified as foster parents and I moved in with them. It was tough saying goodbye to the Baileys, but since they already had eight kids in the house, and since the Browns were my family, I thought this would be easier on everyone. Besides, I still saw Chelsea and Josh all the time, and I still consider them family today.

I donít know what I would have done without them. To this day, I still look to the Browns as much as to my own parents and to the Baileys for guidance. I just bought a new car, and the first person I called afterward was Sherri, who helped me with my insurance paperwork.

http://media.theplayerstribune.com/uploads/IMG_5984-1-768x562.jpg
COURTESY OF ALBERT WILSON

And when things got tough ó no matter where I happened to be living ó I could always turn to football.

As soon as I was old enough to run ó like two years old ó my dad had put a football in my hands. My dad loved football, and he wanted to make sure his son, Albert Jr. (most people just called me ďJuniorĒ growing up), loved it too.

He did it because of more than just his love of the game, though. My dad also saw sports as a way for his kids to have a better life. He was right.

I mean, itís an older brotherís job to take care of
his younger sisters.
But I couldnít ó I didnít have the money.

Football became my refuge. When I was on the field, everything else melted away. I poured everything I had into the sport. That dedication paid off on the field and in the newspapers, where my name started popping up in game recaps. My dad collected every one of those newspaper clippings and kept them with him throughout his prison sentence. And by the time I graduated high school, I had received a scholarship to play football at Georgia State.

Hard work and luck. Itís amazing what those two things can get you in life. Together, they helped get me to the NFL.

But not everyone in the foster system is so lucky. My younger sisters werenít.

One day when I was a sophomore at Georgia State, I was on the phone with my sister, and I asked her about college. She was about to graduate from high school, and I wanted to know what colleges she had applied to.

ďAlbert, Iím not even sure I can go to college,Ē she said.

That stunned me.

ďWhat do you mean?Ē I asked. ďWhat about the scholarships?Ē

http://media.theplayerstribune.com/uploads/IMG_6004.jpg
COURTESY OF ALBERT WILSON

In Florida, kids in the foster system can get scholarships to in-state schools. What I didnít know ó and what my sister had to explain to me ó was that if a kid leaves the foster system before graduation, he or she is no longer eligible for those scholarships.

My younger sisters, Albertina and Porchea, spent years in the foster system when they were both in high school ó before they went back to live with my parents. The moment they left foster care, they were no longer eligible for scholarships from the state. Thatís messed up, right? All those years they had spent in the system ó it was almost like they were being punished for being reunited with their parents.

I wanted more than anything to help them. I mean, itís an older brotherís job to take care of his younger sisters. But I couldnít ó I didnít have the money. That really hurt.

Porchea eventually went to an art institute. Albertina didnít go to college. They both deserved better.

http://media.theplayerstribune.com/uploads/IMG_2349-1.jpg
COURTESY OF ALBERT WILSON

When I signed with the Chiefs as an undrafted free agent two years later ó and then had early success on the field ó I suddenly had the resources to give back. I saw the impact my teammates were making with their charitable organizations, and I wanted to do the same. I thought of my sisters. I hadnít been able to help them, but now I suddenly had the ability to help the countless others like them.

Thatís why, this year, my foundation is launching a scholarship program for kids who spent at least two years in foster care but didnít age out of it.

I have the chance, even the obligation, to show kids that where you come from doesnít have to determine where you end up. Iím a little nervous, because Iíve never done anything like this before. But I know how much just a little bit of help ó and a little bit of luck ó can turn someoneís life around.

He knew he wasn't a part of the game plan back then...

I had no idea Albert Wilson's sister was Tank Tyler. I thought Tank was older than Albert. :hmmm:

I crap on him for his lack of natural ball skills and willingness to lay out for a pass, but the dude has been blocking his ass off from day 1.

So he's at least Dwayne Bowe level. ROFL

My knock on him is the inability to reach or lay out for the catch.

Seems like a good kid. Hopefully he can continue to improve. Yesterday he had a nice game for sure. Now i hope to expect a few more.

Part of my problem with him. Even if he's not constantly running post routes and Alex's first, second, or even third options, he still needs to sell out every play. DAT has really stepped up big in that regard this season, and hopefully Wilson is following DAT's lead.

I'm encouraged by Wilson's play yesterday. Now show me more.

He will, because Maclin isn't coming back.

OTOH he's not an emphasis of this offense...

He's clutch.

He's not flashy, he doesn't shake or burn anyone, but he makes the play...I guess, but he looked like he was shot out of a cannon on that fake punt; dude has some wheels.

Edit: Just found his combine: 4.35 isn't too shabby.

I thought that too. I didn't realize he was that fast.

He's been nails the last couple of weeks.

Not sure how that is a bad thing.

Yeah, dude has ability, I think he gets jammed at the line and can't recover. I don't know what to think of the guy. I went the Faid game in 2014 and he was all over the place. Trying to block giant fuckers, diving all over the place, I kept thinking, easy there big guy, don't get yourself hurt. Now he won't lay out for balls. It doesn't compute how it can be the same guy. I'm not sure it is an effort thing rather than a skill thing, because the ability is there.

Not a bad thing at all. He has some receptions to make up for. Hope he does it.

He's built like a running back. He won't get injured so easily like other Wrs.

umm ... the reason he stopped diving,blocking and running hard with the ball is because he kept getting hurt.

I think he got scared about getting hurt over and over so he started avoiding impact instead. Can't really blame him i guess, if he would have gotten hurt again he probably would have been out of the league. Hard to get another shot when you're an UDFA. He did what he had to do.

It looks like he's starting to get more confident about being able to stay healthy this year.

Wut? He's returned one total kick his whole career.

"Punt returns" are considered returns...and Wilson used to field punts. And he was not very good at it.

There is a reason that Alex stuck that game-clinching slant route ball onto Wilson's LEFT shoulder yesterday. No way was Smith gonna put that ball out in front, lol.

Did very well, Albert did. Now if Maclin's back, I'm all in with #19, #10, and #17. #12 and #13 can mix in for a few snaps, if one of the starters needs a brief rest.

Damn, not one of the active WRs has a number in the 80's?, lol.

FYI This is a contract year Albert Wilson


He's a RFA next year.
