Report: Adrian Wilson will be ready to start offseason program

Last offseason, the Patriots added veteran safety Adrian Wilson, in what was viewed as a perfect Patriots signing.

But no one ever got a chance to see any evidence of that, as the longtime Cardinals safety went on injured reserve at final cuts with an Achilles injury.

Now, he’s apparently healthy and ready to prove it. According to Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald, Wilson is expected to be ready for the start of their offseason workouts on April 21.

The 34-year-old signed a three-year deal, and will cost them $1.2 million in cash this year. That’s a reasonable rate for a player who seemed like such a natural fit a year ago, and could help the Patriots even if he’s not an every down player any longer.

    Man I loved watching the “assassin” play when he was a Cardinal. I hope he gets a chance to prove himself healthy with the Pats as I was on the side of thinking this was a great signing as well. He adds some tenacity/hard hitting that has been missing from the Pats secondary since Harrison (not counting loser Meriweather). At 34, we’ll see whats left though

    Best of Luck Adrian.

    Expect Wilson to be cut, loved the signing last year but I don’t think he can run anymore.

    Take your little brothers shirt off man, clearly it does not fit

    Not sure what he’s got left but I doubt he runs worse than Ed Reed right now. And they could definitely use a thumper at the safety position.

    I looooove Wilson. He can still rattle the cages over the middle, but he lost several steps even before the injury. Hoping for the best for him.

    He ended Trent Edwards career.

    Dude was never the same after he got rocked by Wilson in Arizona.

    But, 34, coming off an Achilles? He’s done.

    (Rodney Harrison was dirty.)

    Sad but he’s gone. They can’t take that chance that may be any good. Need that $1.2 mil in cap dollars.

    Healthy or not he’s way better than that sorry ass scrub Steve Gregory. It makes me sick seeing him on the field, we need a true safety back there.
