Wilson Gets Deal Done


Arizona Cardinals safety Adrian Wilson has been extended five years.

Now that’s the right way to get a deal done. Checklist please.

  • Don’t publicly complain
  • Leave it to the team to wait for the opportune time
  • Work a new deal with one year left
  • Indirectly take shots at your teammates, or at least call them out, for the way they’ve handled their press

Are you listening Anquan BoldinDarnell Dockett?

At least Karlos Dansby was there to support Wilson.  That’s a class act, even if the Cardinals may not get a deal done for him.  Dansby has gone about it the right way as well.

Wilson is 29, has several good years at least in front of him.  New England Patriots all-pro Rodney Harrison was still hitting and playing hard up until his retirement yesterday at age 37.

Good deal.  Wilson never complained once, at least publicly.  He never took his lack of an extension to the press.  No drama ever appeared with Wilson.  I hope the others were watching – closely.
