Cardinals release Wilson

The Arizona Cardinals have released five-time Pro Bowl strong safety Adrian Wilson.

Wilson, 33, who had been the longest-tenured player on the team, took a pay cut to stay with the Cardinals before last season, but knew as it was winding down that it would be his final one in the desert.

Wilson played 12 seasons with the Cardinals and is one of six NFL players with 25 interceptions and 25 sacks. A Pro Bowler in 2006 and 2008-11, he has 27 interceptions and 25 sacks, including eight in 2005, which were the most ever by a defensive back.

Wilson played 181 games with Arizona, fifth-most in team history, and was a team captain five times, including last season.

Dolphins re-sign WR, backup QB Receiver Brian Hartline and quarterback Matt Moore have both resigned with the Miami Dolphins. Hartline agreed to a five-year deal worth nearly $31 million ($12.5 million guaranteed), while Moore signed a two-year contract to remain with the team.

Hartline led Miami last year with 74 receptions for 1,083 yards, both career highs, despite missing most of the preseason because of injuries. He caught only one touchdown pass and has six career TD receptions in 183 catches.

Moore was beaten out for Miamis No. 1 job last summer by rookie Ryan Tannehill and played in only two games off the bench. The five- year veteran started 12 games for the Dolphins in 2011 and had his best season, throwing for 2,497 yards and 16 touchdowns with nine interceptions.

Panthers release Gamble The Carolina Panthers released starting cornerback Chris Gamble on Friday in a move that will get them under this years NFL salary cap.

By releasing Gamble the Panthers will save $7.9 million under this years salary cap. The former first-round pick who has played his entire career with the Panthers immediately becomes a free agent. The Panthers selected Gamble with the 28th overall pick in the 2004 draft out of Ohio State.

He played in 123 career regular season games with 117 starts and is the franchises leader with 27 career interceptions, including two returned for touchdowns. He has started more games for the Panthers than any cornerback in franchise history. …
