Don Wilson had a very distinguished 12 year career in the CFL as a defensive back from 1987 to 1998. Most of that time was spent in Edmonton and Toronto, with one year in BC. In those 12 years, Wilson racked up 61 interceptions and over 1000 yards in interception returns. He scored 5 touchdowns on interception returns and added another 3 on fumble returns. Wilson started his pro career as a free agent signing by Buffalo in 1984 and remained with them through 1986. In March of 1987, Wilson signed as a freee agent with the Montreal Alouettes, but the Als folded just before the regular season started. Wilson was selected by the Winnipeg Blue Bombers in the third round of the dispersal draft, but was released before playing any games for the Bombers. Edmonton picked up Wilson and were more than happy with his performance in 1987 as he recorded 7 interceptions in just 15 games, including running one back for a touchdown. Wilson played two more years (1988 and 1989) with Edmonton in what would be his first of three tours with the Eskimos. Wilson won a West All-Star selection in 1988 and both West and CFL All-Star selections in 1989. Despite that, Wilson was released by Edmonton in June, 1990 and was signed as a free agent by the Toronto Argos. Wilson played three seasons in Toronto (1990-92), win East All-Stars in all three seasons iand CFL All-Stars in 1990 and 1991. Prior to the 1993 season, Wilson was traded back to Edmonton in a massive trade that saw eight players go from Toronto to Edmonton and eight going the other way back to Toronto with the bigest name being QB Tracy Ham going to Toronto. Wilson played two years in his second stay in Edmonton (1993-94), winning both West and CFL All-Stars in 1993. Wilson became a free agent after the 1994 season and signed with Toronto for his second stint there, playing two seasons for the Argos in 1995 and 1996. While Wilson didn't win any more All-Star selections, he did have 6 interceptions in 1995 and 1 in 1996. That intercetion kept Wilson streak alive as he recoreded at least one interception in every year he played and actually was below 4 interceptions only twice in his career. In 1997, Wilson signed as a free agent with the BC Lions where he recorded another 4 interceptions. Wilson returned to Edmonton as a free agent for his final season and third time with Edmonton in 1998. Wilson added 2 more interceptions in that final season, playing just 9 games. If you lost count through all the movement between teams, Wilson finished with 6 division All-Star selections and 4 CFL All-Star selections.
