The Arizona Cardinals have released Wilson, a five-time Pro Bowl strong safety.

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 new agreement reworks that deal and could pave the way for him to retire as a Cardinal. Terms were not disclosed.

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.
