Mack Wilson has fallen out of favor with the Cleveland Browns and could find himself on a new squad with the trade deadline approaching, J.R. De Groote of Heavy reports.

Wilson has started 23 games over three seasons with the Browns but played a season-low five snaps on defense last week. He’s fallen behind on the depth chart with the return of veteran starter Anthony Walker and the emergence of rookie second-round pick Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah.

Jeremy Fowler of ESPN reported on Tuesday that teams are monitoring the situation with Wilson in Cleveland and he could be on the move if a linebacker-needy team comes calling with the right deal.

Wilson took over a starting role for the majority of his rookie season. He notched 77 tackles, one interception, a forced fumble, four tackles for loss and defended seven passes. However, his second season started out rocky, with a hyperextended knee during training camp. Wilson played in 13 games with eight starts, recording 39 tackles. However, he was a healthy scratch on occasion. It was reported by Sports Illustrated’s Albert Breer in the preseason that the Browns were taking calls on Wilson.

While his play has been lacking of late, there is a reason teams would want in on Wilson. He is just 23, comes with some starting experience and could be a fit in a different system.
