Dream Continues For Tryout WR Tim Wilson

Twenty-three players participated in the Eagles' Rookie Camp on a tryout basis. One earned a spot on the active roster.

The Eagles signed wide receiver Tim Wilson on Monday and waived cornerback Jordan Thomas.

Wilson's a great local story. He grew up in Philly and moved to Wayne, Pennsylvania where he was a standout at Radnor High School. He went to East Stroudsburg and finished his college career with 133 catches for 2,042 yards and 16 touchdowns. Wilson ranks 10th in school history in all-purpose yards, factoring in punt and kick return experience. The 24-year-old was a named a second-team All-PSAC East selection in each of the past two seasons.

The road doesn't get any easier as the 5-9, 170-pound Wilson is one of 12 receivers on the roster. Nonetheless, he'll have every chance to earn a spot on the 53-man roster between now and the end of the preseason.
