Adrian Wilson would like to play three more years


Safety Adrian Wilson’s long run with the Cardinals came to an end last week, but Wilson isn’t thinking about the end of his playing days.

Wilson said he had no hard feelings toward the Cardinals for the end of their 12-year relationship and that all he was thinking about now was his next stop. He’d like to play for a contender on the West Coast, something that he described as a “best-case scenario” while making it clear that he plans to be playing somewhere in 2013.

“A lot of people say a lot of different things about why I got shut down last year and all this other stuff, but the point is I feel like I still have three years left. That’s the reason why I signed that deal, was because I knew my time was running out and I know I can still play good ball,” Wilson said on XTRA Sports 910, via But that’s not even an issue. It’s just all about finding the right fit and just moving forward, man.”

The Chargers don’t quite qualify as a contender, but they are on the coast and might need a safety with Brandon Taylor recovering from a torn ACL. Former Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt is in San Diego as the offensive coordinator and secondary coach Ron Milus actually coached Wilson in Arizona early in Wilson’s career.

    Don’t forget Wilson and Rivers played together in college and remain good friends. Could definitely see that working.

    Have you ever tried your hand at free safety? Who am I kidding, you can’t cover well enough to be play FS, but I wish you could as I’d love to have you on the 9ers.

    I have a ton of respect for Adrian Wilson, even though he did a 9er real dirty a few years back! He has a lot of heart and pride and a nasty demeanor.
