Hits waiver wire
Wilkerson was waived by the Colts on Tuesday.
Wilkerson was claimed by Indianapolis after being waived by the Patriots back in February. The 26-year-old spent three seasons in New England, suiting up four times and accumulating four catches on eight targets for 42 yards and two touchdowns. However, he did miss the entire 2022 campaign after being placed on injured reserve upon suffering a concussion during training camp. He'll now seek the opportunity to land within another team's receiving corps ahead of the 2023 season.
Finds new opportunity
The Colts claimed Wilkerson off of waivers from the Patriots on Thursday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.
Wilkerson is now slated to compete for one of Indianapolis' roster spots throughout the offseason and into training camp following Thursday's transaction. The 26-year-old wide receiver sustained what turned out to be a season-ending concussion back in August, but given that he's since found a new home, it can be implied that Wilkerson is once again ready to throw the pads back on.
Cut loose Wednesday
The Patriots waived Wilkerson (concussion) on Wednesday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.
Wilkerson suffered a concussion during training camp and ultimately spent the entire 2022 campaign on injured reserve. The 26-year-old previously played in three games for the Patriots during the 2021 season, recording four catches on eight targets for 42 yards and two touchdowns. He'll likely look to find work elsewhere ahead of OTAs.
