With his bicep tendon tear, Arizona Cardinals safety Adrian Wilson has a little bit more time than he normally would. Yes, he is working hard to rehab his injury so he does not miss time in the regular season, but he was able to sit down with a website, complex.com, and talk about a little bit more than just football.

He talks about his off-the-field ventures and likes, but he also shares some good stuff about football.

How serious is the injury he sustained that could have cost him the entire season if he had decided to have surgery?He once again downplays it, saying that "it's just a minor bicep tear."  "They make it sound horrible, but it's not that big of a deal," he goes on to explain. "I'll be ready on September 11th."

Wilson added a little more fuel to the fire on the topic of Larry Fitzgerald wanting Kevin Kolb as his quarterback. 

When asked about the new additions to the team, he said, "We got ourselves a QB in Kevin Kolb, which was the No. 1 priority for us; that made Larry [Fitzgerald] very happy." 

Do you think that Kolb being a Cardinals had anything to do with Fitzgerald's decision? No way he signs an eight-year deal unless Kolb is in Arizona. 

Wilson discusses his love for fashion and how he has a clothing line -- Dearly Departed. He love sneakers and streetwear. 

A-Dub believes that the team can win the NFC West, but the biggest surprise in the article was actually two things. 

The first was a revelation he made when asked his workouts and the famous hurdle jumping video. In the YouTube sensation, he jumped over a 66-inch high bar. Can he still do it? "I actually jumped over a 69-inch hurdle this off-season," he said as he laughed. "I'm sure that'll be on my website sooner or later."

That is amazing. The other seems weird, considering his personality. What is one of the songs he listens to before going to the field? Phil Collins' "In the Air Tonight." It's a great song, but seems a bit mild for the guy who looks like he could smash you into pieces.

Are you going to question that? I certainly won't, but as long as he can be a solid contributor, he can listen to whatever he wants.
