Cardinals extend Adrian Wilson’s deal through 2015

The Cardinals might not know who their quarterback’s going to be, but they apparently have a little more salary cap room at the moment.

According to Mike Jurecki of XTRA 910 in Phoenix, the Cards approached Adrian Wilson and quickly agreed to a contract extension Tuesday.

Wilson had $17 million left on the five-year, $36.5 million deal he signed in 2009.

But by stretching him out through 2015, the Cardinals created some short-term cap room and ensured he’d be able to finish his career in the desert.

The 32-year-old safety played through a partially torn biceps muscle last year, but didn’t miss a game.

    SUCH A BEAST!! Played through an injury and still played better than most safeties in the league!

    Really tough guy to play through the injury he had last year and he still played well…If anyone deserves an extension on the Cardinals it’s him

    I really like to see a team take care of a guy who laid it all out for the team, playing through an injury without missing time. He played through a partially torn biseps tendon that could have had him miss all of last year. Many times, the player is asked to take a pay cut or gets cut because of a bad year played because they played though a bad injury but not in this case.

    Tough guy. Good job, Cards.

    Great player but on the wrong team to get noticed as such.

    A Dub is a Cardinal GOAT! His name will be in the ring of honor someday. He would have been a HOF player on a great team. He remained a loyal Cardinal until we became a great team. Something that never would have happened without him. From cellar dwellers to NFC Champs and a Superbowl berth he saw it all. Also one of the most vicious hitters in the NFL.
