Cardinals Ink Safety Wilson to a Five-Year Deal

The Cardinals took care of their top offseason priority on Thursday by signing two-time Pro Bowl safety Adrian Wilson to a new five-year, $39 million contract, with $18.5 million guaranteed. The deal puts Wilson under contract through the 2013 season.

“The main point was we wanted to extend our relationship with a great football player,” general manager Rod Graves said after a news conference to announce the signing.

“But I think the signing does indicate in many other ways the idea that you want to reward players who do things the right way,” Graves said, “who are committed to excellence and who represent your organization exceptionally well.”

Wilson is the hard-hitting leader of the Cardinals’ defense and was a Pro Bowl selection in the 2006 and 2008 seasons. His old contract was due to expire after the coming season.

    Glad to see there is one old school safety left that can get paid. Wilson is one of the most underrated defenders in the league.
