After 12 seasons and five Pro Bowls, Adrian Wilson is done in Arizona.
Wilson, who has played more games for the franchise than any other player since the Cardinals moved to Arizona in 1988, was informed today that he is being released, Mike Jurecki of XTRA 910 reports.
The move will save about $3 million in salary cap space for Arizona.
Although it’s hard to think of Wilson in any other team’s uniform, this move is not particularly surprising. It is well known that the Cardinals want to get younger under their new coaching staff, and Wilson will turn 34 during the 2013 season.
Still, Wilson has enough left that he’ll catch on somewhere. He now gets a brief head start on the rest of the safety class in free agency.
