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 SportsRadioInterviews.com. 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.
