I thought Wilder had been released back in December.

Edit: I guess the team just gave him an unofficial heads up in December. I wonder why they waited till now to make it official.

As far as I know he never had the surgery he needed to get back on the field. Sounds like they were finishing out his full contract.

He always looked unprofessional with his jersey rolled up exposing his abs.
I liked that he didn't get vaxxed though.

"I liked that he didn't get vaxxed though"

Huh ???? please do explain , enquiring minds need to know .

Although I do have to agree that him wearing his jersey like he got it from 'KIDS R US" made him look like the total douche that he was .

Looks like this is the end of the road for the very talented James Wilder Jr. He has been plagued with injuries during his entire CFL career. :upside_down_face:
