Former Cardinals Exec Mysteriously Leaves role

Former Arizona Cardinals executive Adrian Wilson is no longer with the Carolina Panthers, and the reason for his departure remains unclear.

The team did not issue an official statement about his exit, which was only noticed over the weekend when someone observed that his name was missing from the team’s official website.

The Panthers provided the following statement to Pro Football Talk:

“Adrian Wilson will not continue in his position as Vice President of Player Personnel for the Carolina Panthers,” a team spokesperson told PFT on Sunday morning. “Consistent with our organizational policy on employee matters, we will have no further comment.”

Wilson previously served as the interim co-general manager in Arizona alongside Quentin Harris before owner Michael Bidwill appointed Monti Ossenfort, who is now heading into his second offseason. Wilson reportedly did not receive an interview with Arizona before accepting the vice president of player personnel position with Carolina.

He had been mentioned as a potential general manager candidate for several teams in the past, most notably the Jacksonville Jaguars a few offseasons ago, though those discussions reportedly fell through at the last minute.

Wilson had been with the Arizona Cardinals since 2015, starting as a regional scout and eventually rising to vice president of pro scouting. Many remember Wilson as one of the Cardinals’ top players during his playing career, and he is honored in the franchise’s Ring of Honor for his on-field achievements.

While the exact reason for Wilson’s departure remains unknown, it is clear that he is no longer with the organization.
