Hours after he reportedly agreed to terms with the San Francisco 49ers, safety J.J. Wilcox had a change of heart and plans to sign with the New York Jets, according to ESPN.
Wilcox was at the 49ers' team facility with the intent of signing a contract before "he got stage fright" and balked, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported, quoting a source.
The 27-year-old Wilcox, according to the report, decided he wanted to play for New York Jets coach Todd Bowles and boarded a flight to New Jersey.
Newsday, citing a source, confirmed later Tuesday that Wilcox planned to visit Jets.
The Steelers released Wilcox on April 30 after selecting a pair of safeties in the 2018 draft and signing two more safeties in free agency.
