Posted March 08, 2013
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 Arizona Cardinals have signed five-time Pro Bowl safety Wilson to a contract extension that runs through the 2015 season.

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