Most NFL players are aware in the back of their minds that they could be unemployed within the blink of an eye. With a 'what have you done for me lately' business schedule and millions of dollars on the table, players ranging from their rookie year to well into veteran years could be handed the pink slip. As for the Patriots squad, safety Adrian Wilson looks like he could be a salary cap casualty.

The Pats sparked a fair amount of excitement when they signed the 34-year-old All-Pro. After a preseason injury landed him on the IR though, he spent the season on the bench. Three years and $5 million is what the deal was for, but it looks like that could be cut short. According to CBSSports.com, the Patriots would shave $3,666,666 off the cap if they were to send Wilson packing.

The defensive secondary has been a roller coaster for the Patriots this season, showing flashes of greatness at times while also being exposed as a weakness in other scenarios. Could they use Wilson's help and veteran presence? Absolutely, but the real question is whether or not he is worth the money that they would be required to give him.
