▪ Receiver Albert Wilson: “He’s very detailed,” Ferrer said. “He likes us to explain the science, why he’s doing this or that. Pete thinks he’s going to be amazing this year.”
Incidentally, Pro Football Focus noted Wilson led the league in wide receiver rating (the passer rating when targeted) on targets at or behind the line of scrimmage last season. At 133.3, he was far ahead of Jarvis Landry, who was No. 2 at 107.4.
Per PFF, “Wilson caught 17-of-20 targets behind the line of scrimmage, for 160 receiving yards and two touchdowns, resulting in a passer rating when targeted of 133.3 — the best mark in the league by a considerable margin. Wilson also racked up a staggering 8.0 yards per reception and 10.9 yards after the catch per reception, which also paced the league.”
