Wilson reverted to the Eagles' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log.
Analysis: Wilson played seven snaps on special teams during a 27-17 loss to the Giants on Sunday, but he went unutilized by an Eagles offense that was without tight end Zach Ertz (ankle) for the contest. Despite a quiet outing that entailed no offensive role, the appearance marked the first of Wilson's NFL career. He did not end up playing in the regular season last year after being selected in the seventh round of the 2019 NFL Draft by Arizona.

The Eagles waived Wilson on Friday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Analysis: The Eagles picked up Wilson off waivers exactly one month ago, but he'll head back nearly a week before the season opener. The 2019 seventh-round pick was quite productive in his final college season with 60 receptions for 965 yards and four scores at UCLA, but it simply hasn't translated to the NFL ranks.

Wilson did not suit up for a contest during 2019.
Analysis: Wilson spent the final three games of his rookie season on Washington's roster after having been cut by the Cardinals prior to Week 1. The Mr. Irrelevant of the 2019 NFL Draft stands to compete for a depth/special-teams role with the Redskins for 2020.

Wilson signed a contract with the Redskins on Friday, Scott Bordow of The Athletic reports.
Analysis: Wilson was the final pick of the 2019 draft in April by Arizona and joined the team's practice squad after failing to make the season-opening roster, but he'll now receive an opportunity in Washington. The 23-year-old should work as the team's No. 3 tight end behind Jeremy Sprinkle and Hale Hentges.
