Adrian Wilson is tougher than you

Cardinals safety Adrian Wilson tore his biceps muscle in training camp. At the time, there was some fear he would miss the season.

Instead, he wound up playing more defensive snaps than any player in the NFL and made the Pro Bowl.

Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune acquired NFL-generated playing time statistics, which revealed Wilson took the most snaps of any defensive player with 1,134 snaps. (Saints offensive linemen Jermon Bushrod and Carl Nicks led offensive players with 1,152 snaps.)

That leads to two main thoughts. Adrian Wilson is a badass. And why can’t the NFL make these statistics and others like them available to the public?

Biggs dove into the Bears playing time numbers, which revealed Roy Williams had more snaps than any other Chicago wide receiver with 600 snaps. He caught 37 passes for 507 yards.

There’s very little reason to think Williams, a free agent, will play any snaps for the Bears next season.
