Per Jurecki, Wilson has been informed that the team intends to release him today.

Most likely mean they got a deal done with Rashad Johnson.

Sad day for Cardinals fans. He was one of the only reasons to show up at Sun Devil stadium for a Cards game back in the day. One of my all time favorite players. Good luck AW and thanks for the memories!

it really is a shame, this is a guy who lived and bled Cardinal football. He took a pay cut last year to help the team out, and has been the greatest leader this franchise could have ever asked for. Losing Wilson is a huge loss in that department...he can not and will not be replaced there...ever.

this is more than just a sad day to be a Cardinal fan. Words cannot describe how terrible this is.

I just hope he goes to a contender and get a ring he very much deserves.

He is clearly on the downside of his career but I was hoping he could take another paycut. I understand this financially though. A new coaching staff and GM don't want to have money tied up just for sentimental reasons. They are trying to start a new era. Hopefully A-Dub finds his way to a contender, preferably outside the NFC West. .

Terrible decision, veteran prescence that will be greatly missed. Might as well add his name to the ring of honor right now

Why a terrible decision? That's a little dramatic. If there was no such thing as a salary cap then sure that's what it would be. But this move saves us roughly 3 million which would be enough in itself to bring back Rashad Johnson, a player who will probably out perform A-Dub at this point in his career.

A-Dub was a great and loyal player. I hope he either just retires as a cardinal right now or goes to a contender.

I was just saying it out of emotion, bad decision

34 yr old backup safeties dont make $3 mil, that is business unfortunately.

Adub you are a legend, but your play slipped last year, I hope you retire a Cardinal and only that.

You will litter our record books and our minds with your 12 years of wonderful service.

You could really start to see him breaking down in 2010-11'...

He was awesome in his prime but those years came when we sucked. He will always be a great Card-

Holy crap, once Early gets cut and Kolb cut/re-structured we'll be 16-17m under that cap. First year draft picks will take up 4-5m but we can easily re-sign Toler/Johnson and maybe Groves.

I've seen a couple places say that draft picks cost roughly 6-7m to lock up generally.

And then comes back to be a DBs coach.

Miss you A-Dub, thanks for everything you did as a Redbird

Retire and come back as a coach

Then replace Arians as HC in a few years, nice ring to it.
