BREAKING: J.J. Wilcox Went To Sign With 49ers, "Got Stage Fright" And Now Plans To Sign With Jets

The San Francisco 49ers had thought they added some safety depth when they agreed to sign former Pittsburgh Steelers safety J.J. Wilcox. However, things went haywire at the last minute and the signing isn't happening.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Wilcox "got stage fright" when he went to sign and is now preparing to sign with the New York Jets.

Wilcox originally signed a two-year, $6.25 million contract with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last offseason but was traded to Pittsburgh before the start of the regular season. The Steelers cut him in April.

He appeared in 12 games for the Steelers last season, racking up 12 tackles and one interception.
