Wiggins joins safety Josh Harvey-Clemons and linebacker Keith Kelsey as defensive players who will forego the draft and return to the Cardinals in 2016. In his first year with the team after transferring from Georgia, Wiggins had 30 tackles along with two interceptions and 11 passes defended. He is a supreme athlete in Louisville’s secondary and should see even more progress in his play next year as he continues to be one of college football’s top corners.
Needless to say, the Cardinals fans and coaching staff alike probably just breathed a big sigh of relief.
