Source: Adrian Wilson to visit Pats

Free agent safety Adrian Wilson, recently released by the Cardinals, will take a visit to Gillette Stadium and meet with the Patriots, a source confirmed.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Network and NFL.com first reported the news.

Wilson, 33, has played 12 seasons in the NFL, all with Arizona, totaling 894 tackles, 27 interceptions and 25.5 sacks. He is one of just six players in NFL history with 25 or more sacks and 25 or more interceptions.

A former third-round pick out of North Carolina State, Wilson is a five-time Pro Bowl selection and four-time All-Pro choice.

He was signed to a contract extension last July, but the franchise is in the midst of an overhaul and also recently released fellow safety starter Kerry Rhodes.
