Wilson was the New York Giants' first-round pick in the 2012 NFL draft. The running back compiled 504 rushing yards and five rushing touchdowns in limited action over the past two seasons. He also had a receiving touchdown and scored on a kickoff return.
Unfortunately for the young player, he was recently shut down due to a chronic neck injury.
On Wednesday, he said his goodbyes. The speech gets very emotional starting around the four-minute, 50-second mark.
It's always tough to see an injury end a player's career, but Wilson is very grateful that he had the opportunity to play with the Giants.
