Was the torn abductor that SS Adrian Wilson recently revealed he played all season with at least partially responsible for what daily team observers considered a subpar season, despite his third consecutive Pro Bowl berth? “You have to wonder,” one team insider said. “It’s interesting that he played in the Pro Bowl and waited so long to have surgery.” The way Wilson started off the 2010 campaign — with two interceptions, a sack and the first blocked punt of his career in a 17-13 road victory over the Rams — it appeared he might be on the cusp of a banner season. “But it ended up being probably his worst season,” the insider said. That said, with new defensive coordinator Ray Horton expected to take full advantage of Wilson’s well-documented versatility in a constantly aggressive scheme, the Cardinals appear in relatively decent shape at safety with Kerry Rhodes and the improved Rashad Johnson also in the mix.
