Solomon Wilcots is a former American football defensive back in the NFL and a current national television analyst and broadcaster. Wilcots played six seasons in the league for the Cincinnati Bengals, Minnesota Vikings and Pittsburgh Steelers.
He played college football at the University of Colorado under coach Bill McCartney. He was a medical redshirt as a freshman when the Buffaloes went 1–10, but the program enjoyed a turnaround during Wilcots' time there as a defensive back with records of 7–5, 6–6, 7–4, 8–4, and three bowl appearances. He earned a degree in English literature.
In the 1987 NFL Draft, he was chosen in the eighth round (215th overall) by the Cincinnati Bengals.
During his rookie season of 1987, he played in 12 games for the Bengals and recorded the first of his two career interceptions. In 1988 he was a starter in all 16 games, and in 1989 he played in all 16 games as a reserve defensive back. In 1990 he again played in all 16 games, including 10 as a starter. In 1991 he signed with the Minnesota Vikings, playing in all 16 games, and in 1992, his final season, he played in 16 games for the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Wilcots began his television career as a weekend sports anchor for NBC Cincinnati affiliate WLWT from 1994 until 2003. During this time he spent three seasons (1998–2000) as a sideline reporter for ESPN's Sunday Night football, for which he received an Emmy Award in 2000 for sideline reporting.
In 2001, Wilcots joined CBS, where he is currently a color commentator for CBS football telecasts, paired with Spero Dedes. He is also an analyst on the NFL Network's NFL Total Access show. On NFL Network, Wilcots can be seen each week on "Playbook", utilizing the same "all 22" game film that coaches and players use to preview all of the upcoming games, alongside an array of former NFL players including Brian Baldinger, Sterling Sharpe and Mike Mayock. Wilcots also is the co-host of "The Red Zone" on Sirius NFL Radio with Marty Schottenheimer, Gil Brandt and Carl Banks.
