So there are some Joey Porter rumours starting up. I would be all for it, even at 33 he is a better 3-4 OLB than anyone we have had on the roster over the last few years. Also I read a comment from Darren Urban (the writer for Cards official site) that he doesn't think Chike is going to be resigned. So currently we are going into next year with Haggans (33 years old), Davis (6th rounder last year) and Brown (IR) as the only OLBs on the roster.
I think regardless of any offseason signings we should be targeting an edge rusher high in the draft.
Hey guys, I'm curious what's the latest on Rolle and Dansby? How much do they want and where they're rumored to go.
Cards have said they wont tag Dansby again so he is as good as gone. For a contract I guess a good starting point would be Bart Scott's 6 year 48 million contract from last season. The free agent class is weak though and he is going to have so many bidders it's going to cost a pretty penny to secure his services.
On Rolle he is due a 4 million roster bonus next week and then another 8 million salary on top of that (12million total :)) so all signs point to him being let go. The Cards will let him test free agency and will look to match any reasonable offer but most likely he will be out of our price range.
Well it looks like Boldin is gone, 3rd and 4th to the Ravens. Sucks to see him go but it's a good deal for both teams, hopefully Doucet can continue on with his post season form. Looks like Rolle and Dansby are pretty much guaranteed to be elsewhere next season as well.
Some FAs I hope we chase.
FS - Ryan Clark. Steelers connection and he is solid all around player.
OLB - Joey Porter. Steeler connection and he has said he wants to play hear. On the downside of his career but still an upgrade over anything we had last year.
DT - Ma'ake Kemoeatu. Big strong tackle coming off a season ending surgery but I think he could work well as part of our NT rotation.
TE - Ben Watson. Wouldn't mind him if he came cheap.
I have seen some talk around Larry Foote as a stop gap to fill the void left by Dansby.
According to ESPN’s Chris Mortensen, the Cardinals will host a visit from Charlie Whitehurst, a restricted free agent quarterback from the San Diego Chargers. The recent third-round tender would presumably compete with Matt Leinart for a starting job if the Cardinals sign him.
The Cardinals organization, however, continue to insist that the 2010 draft will focus on defensive players; rightly so. With current needs at DE, CB, ILB, and OLB
Foote is here today and Porter comes in on Thursday
I lied, apparently Foote has been here since Tuesday but both are visiting today, they both want to be Cardinals so the only way they leave without a contract is if we don't want them or if they want some ridiculous contract
