I'm on the field at Rams minicamp and about to speak with Steven Jackson. Both of these deals are significant. The deal with Wilson rewards a player who has handled himself the way the Cardinals would like others -- notably Anquan Boldin -- to handle themselves.
Getting a deal for Wilson also moves up Boldin one spot in line for a new contract. Karlos Dansby remains ahead of him. We still don't know whether the Cardinals and Boldin can agree on a deal, but with Wilson's deal out of the way, they're probably closer to having meaningful discussions.
