Posted March 08, 2013
The Arizona Cardinals have released Wilson, a five-time Pro Bowl strong safety. Wilson, who had been the longest-tenured player on the team, took a pay cut to stay with the Cardinals before last season, but knew as it was winding down that it would be his final one in the desert.||||||| Wilson played 12 seasons with the Cardinals and is one of six NFL players with 25 interceptions and 25 sacks. A Pro Bowler in 2006 and 2008-11, he has 27 interceptions and 25 1/2 sacks, including eight in 2005, which were the most ever by a defensive back. Wilson played 181 games with Arizona, fifth-most in team history, and was a team captain five times, including last season.

The Arizona Cardinals have signed five-time Pro Bowl safety Wilson to a contract extension that runs through the 2015 season. The deal was reached Tuesday as the team reported to its training camp in Flagstaff.||||||| The 32-year-old Wilson had two years remaining on his contract. The new agreement reworks that deal and could pave the way for him to retire as a Cardinal. Terms were not disclosed. No one else on the Arizona roster has been with the team as long as Wilson, a four-time team captain who was a third-round draft pick of the Cardinals in 2001.

Wilson went through a limited practice on Tuesday, his first workout since he was sidelined with a torn right biceps tendon on Aug. 6.||||||| Wilson was limited mostly to footwork exercises but took part in a goal-line pass defense drill and said he did not try to avoid any arm work during the practice. Wilson, a four-time Pro Bowler who has played all 10 of his NFL seasons with the Cardinals, chose to rehab the injury rather than consider surgery. He was injured trying to tackle Beanie Wells in practice.
