TEMPE, Ariz. The Arizona Cardinals have signed strong safety Adrian Wilson to a contract extension through the end of the 2015 season.
Wilson, a five-time Pro Bowler, is the longest-tenured Cardinal. He was a third-round draft pick in 2001 and is entering his 12th NFL season.
Wilson started all 16 games last year and took 1,134 defensive snaps -- most in the NFL -- despite sufering a torn biceps during training camp. He earned a fourth consecutive Pro Bowl selection after registering 75 tackles, 16 passes defensed, one interception and one fumble.
Wilson ranks 10th in franchise history with 166 regular season games played. He is one of six players selected in the 2001 draft who is still with his original team.
Wilson's career stats include 924 tackles (679 solos), 26 interceptions, 22.5 sacks, 101 passes defensed, 12 forced fumbles and nine fumble recoveries.
