Wilson had been covering the Houston Texans for years and doing an exceptional job, but his employer could not overlook his comments in such a high profiled case.

A source told Defector that at 5:30 p.m. on Friday members of the sports department received a Zoom invite email titled:

‘Sports staff meeting.’ During the meeting, which lasted about 10 to 15 minutes, the source says that Chronicle sports editor Reid Laymance told staffers that Wilson was no longer employed by the Chronicle. Laymance didn’t discuss any specifics regarding why NFL writer Aaron Wilson was no longer employed, and he did not mention Wilson’s coverage of the lawsuits. He did tell reporters that they needed to be mindful of what they say on other platforms.
