On the verge of signing with the San Francisco 49ers, free-agent safety J.J. Wilcox changed his mind and is expected to sign with the New York Jets, sources told ESPN’s Adam Schefter on Tuesday.  

Wilcox’s reversal stunned the 49ers. He had agreed to terms on a one-year contract and was meeting with the team’s defensive backs coach before practice, sources told Schefter. One source said Wilcox was stricken with “stage fright,” while another said the 27-year-old expressed a desire to play for Jets coach Todd Bowles.

He spent his first four seasons with the Dallas Cowboys, playing in 58 games (38 starts) and recording 214 tackles, five interceptions, 15 passes defensed and two forced fumbles. 

Oops, what about Shefty’s tweet from yesterday? Per his source, he was dead wrong.
