Any team that wants Wilson is going to have to take the beard as well. It's a package deal. Tim Brown of Yahoo! Sports tweeted that there are several teams interested in Wilson. We'll see if it becomes part of his next contract.

From what I can gather, teams most interested in Brian Wilson are: SF, LAD, Cle, Det, Col, Sea, Bos. Cin cd climb in, depending on Chapman
