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.

  1. 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

  2. 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.

  3. 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.
