Wilson made 54 tackles (45 solo), including 2.5 for a loss, and picked off five passes, had 10 passes defensed, and recovered two fumbles in 2016.

This was a special episode of Patriots Fourth And Two as Miguel Benzan who is a Patriots salary cap expert, joined the show to talk about the Patriots off-season. Miguel shared his thoughts on Dont’a Hightower, Stephon Gilmore, Malcom Butler, Jimmy Garoppolo, Brandin Cooks, and Dwayne Allen. There will be a second interview with Miguel that will be recorded soon to discuss the rest of the Patriots moves this off-season.
It would have been hard to imagine as the confetti fell in Houston just over a month ago that Malcolm Butler would be on the verge of being out of New England just six weeks later, barely removed from winning his second championship as a member of the Patriots.
Butler is not an unrestricted free agent. He’s still restricted and essentially belongs to New England for at least the 2017 season.
In this episode we discussed the beginning of free agency for the Patriots. We talked about the Jimmy Garoppolo situation to begin the episode. After that, we talked about the signing of Stephon Gilmore, and what that might mean in regards to the future of Malcom Bulter with the team. Later on, we talked about Dont’a Hightower and what is going on with him now as free agency has begun. We also discussed several other situations with the team at the end of the show.
When it comes to figuring out the offseason moves for the Patriots, saying that they’re one of the most unpredictable teams in the NFL would be an understatement.
Now comes the news that the Patriots are talking a trade with New Orleans with Malcolm Butler and Brandin Cooks being dealt straight up.
