The Bulldog is back! Former Utah quarterback, Travis Wilson is going to get his shot in the NFL, but at tight end, and not QB. Wilson signed with the LA Rams yesterday, and will have an opportunity to live out his dreams. Wilson was slated to go to Australia to play in a new football league there, but the league postponed their start until 2017 due to some stadium and visa issues.
This is a great move by Travis, as QB was never in his future at the next level, but with his size and athleticism, he may be able to make a career at tight end. I’m not sure how he is at running routes or catching the ball, but his size is definitely a major bonus. Travis showed a ton of athleticism during his career at the U, and people may forget that he was a big time volleyball player in high school in SoCal.
