Adrian Wilson re-signed with the Arizona Cardinals to be able to to retire from the NFL as a member of the team he played for during 12 seasons -- the only team for whom he played any actual regular season games.
With so many years in the league, he has earned his share of respect. The love players have for him became apparent with his announcement, as many tweeted or spoke their words of support.
