Adrian Wilson released by New England Patriots

The New England Patriots have cut ties with Adrian Wilson.

The veteran safety was released by the team Friday, ending Wilson's tenure with the Patriots after one season and zero snaps.

Wilson signed a three-year, $5 million deal with the Patriots last March, but missed the entire 2013 season after tearing his Achilles tendon in the preseason finale. He became expendable after the Patriotssigned Patrick Chung on Thursday.

Wilson was a star with the Arizona Cardinals, making five trips to the Pro Bowl. Coming off a serious injury and approaching his 35th birthday, it remains to be seen if Wilson will be able to extend his career to a 14th season.
