You can imagine that safety Adrian Wilson was disappointed that the Arizona Cardinals released him. He believes he can still play at a high level. He has only played for the Cardinals, in the terrible, in the glorious and in the disappointing again.

He is connected to this place. He has raised his children here, so it must be difficult to say goodbye.

Nonetheless, he took a few moments to convey a kind message to Cardinals fans via his Instagram account.

"It's been an honor and a pleasure Cardinals fans. 12 years of heart and dedication and loyalty. 1 day we will celebrate the #24 together. 24"

The team announced that he will one day join the Ring of Honor.
