Gibril Donald Wilson (born November 12, 1981 in Freetown, Sierra Leone) is an American football safety for the Miami Dolphins of the National Football League. He was drafted by the New York Giants in the fifth round of the 2004 NFL Draft. He played college football at Tennessee.

Wilson earned a Super Bowl ring with the Giants in Super Bowl XLII. He has also played for the Oakland Raiders.


College career

Although he excelled in football at both wide receiver and defensive back position at Oak Grove High School, he drew little attention from any Division I schools.
