Brenard Kenric Wilson (born August 15, 1955 in Daytona Beach, Florida), is a former professional American football safety in the National Football League for the Philadelphia Eagles from 1979 to 1987. He played college football at Vanderbilt University.
As a rookie in 1979, Wilson took over from John Sanders (American football) as the Eagle starting free safety, doing a credible job with 4 interceptions. In 1980 and 1981, he had 6 and 5 interceptions, respectively. With Wilson and Randy Logan as the strong-side safety, the Eagles won the NFC Championship Game of the 1980-81 NFL playoffs against the Dallas Cowboys, but lost Super Bowl XV to the Oakland Raiders. In 1982, he had only 1 interception and was replaced in 1983 by Wes Hopkins, who had greater range in the defensive secondary. He had only 1 more interception before retiring.
