The Cardinals rookies are done with offseason work, embarking on a much-deserved vacation before returning to Arizona for training camp.
Caleb Wilson has an action-packed first weekend planned, as he will be the guest of honor during Irrelevant Week in Newport Beach, California.
The UCLA tight end was the final player selected in the draft -- known as Mr. Irrelevant – and will be honored with several days worth of festivities, beginning with a banquet on Friday evening.
Many of the details are public but Wilson said the organizers are trying to keep him in the dark.
“They told my mom, but they don’t want me to know,” he said. “They want me to just experience the whole thing. Someone just tagged me on Instagram – they made me a surfboard that has Mr. Irrelevant and the Cardinals on it – so (I know) I’m getting a surfboard. I think we’re going to Disneyland, a baseball game. It should be a fun time.”
Wilson played high school and college football in Southern California, so it’s an easy excursion, and he said a bunch of friends and family will partake in the events with him.
“They have us at a nice resort,” Wilson said. “My mom, my dad, my sister, a lot of my close friends from UCLA will be there, so it’ll be some good relaxation before training camp comes.”
Wilson is the third Mr. Irrelevant in Cardinals history. He was preceded by tight end Tevita Ofahengaue in 2001 and tight end Gerald Christian in 2015.
