Wednesday Afternoon Open Thread: What Are Your Thoughts On Adrian Wilson's New Deal?

Yesterday, Mike Jurecki from XTRA Sports 910 broke the news that Adrian Wilson, a long time Pro Bowl safety for the Arizona Cardinals, was set to sign a new four year contract with the team. The four years ended up erasing the last two years he had on his current deal and will likely keep him a Cardinal for the rest of his career.

Kent Somers got hold of some contract numbers later on and as suspected, Wilson took a pay cut for his team. He will now make a $1.5 million salary in 2012 and he earned a $1.5 signing bonus. Apparently, there are still escalators in his contract that will allow him to earn the money back, but those details have not emerged.

Head coach Ken Whisenhunt called it an "unselfish move". And it certainly was, but at 33 years of age (he will turn that during the season), was it wise of A-Dub to let that type of money go? I mean, we all want to see him be a Cardinal forever and for the team to get as much cap space as possible, but was this something A-Dub should have done? Darnell Dockett and Larry Fitzgerald have never done the same.
