Arizona Signs Pick Adrian Wilson

July 25, 2001

TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) _ The Arizona Cardinals have agreed to terms with defensive back Adrian Wilson, the team’s third-round draft pick.

The agreement leaves only first-round selection Leonard Davis, the second pick overall, as Arizona’s only unsigned draft choice.

Wilson, a two-year starter at strong safety for North Carolina, will compete for playing time in an Arizona secondary that has lost Aeneas Williams, traded to St. Louis.

Wilson, who left school after his junior season, had 254 tackles (144 solo), 11 stops behind the line of scrimmage, three interceptions and 11 pass deflections in 33 games for the Wolfpack.

Terms of the three-year contract were not disclosed.

The Cardinals open their first training camp under head coach Dave McGinnis this weekend. Players gather in Flagstaff on Friday, with workouts starting on Saturday at Northern Arizona University.
