Cardinals boost o-line with Adam Snyder
The Cardinals' Web site announced the signing but didn't disclose any financial information.
Snyder, 30, was employed at all five offensive line positions during his time with the 49ers, and he made at least 10 starts at each of the positions except for center. He made 13 starts last year and 69 total in 107 games with San Francisco since he was the team's third-round pick in the 2005 draft out of Oregon.
Snyder settled in at right guard in 2011, taking over for Chilo Rachal, another free agent this offseason. CSNBayArea.com reported that the 49ers were due to bring in free-agent offensive guard Leonard Davis, who finished last season with the Detroit Lions.
The 49ers ran for 4.5 yards per carry when Snyder was at right guard last year, 3.0 yards per carry when Rachal manned the position.
--Coach Ken Whisenhunt spent the week in Florida, but it had nothing to do with Peyton Manning returning to Miami to contemplate his future. Whisenhunt was in the state for the NFL's competition committee meetings.
--If the Cardinals do sign Peyton Manning, he won't have to fight to wear No. 18. Receiver Stephen Williams, who has the number now, said he would gladly give it up. He even offered to throw in a set of shoulder pads if it would help.
--Former Cardinals quarterback Kurt Warner thinks Ken Whisenhunt is one of the few coaches flexible enough to change his offense to accommodate Peyton Manning.
"I think it's very rare," Warner said. "People get to a certain place or certain level because they do things their way. It's tough to put that aside and go, 'OK, I'm willing to put my job on the line for somebody else's stuff.'"
--The Cardinals are saying nothing about their interest in Manning. General manager Rod Graves and coach Ken Whisenhunt have declined comment through the team's media relations department. They are standing by their comments made at the Combine. Without naming Manning, they said then they are interested in acquiring any player who would help the team improve.
QUOTE TO NOTE: "The big thing with coach Whiz is he wants to have success. He's willing to give you a little bit of room, see how it plays out, then if you are successful, he gives you more room. The whole time it was us working together and fine tuning." -- Former Cardinals quarterback Kurt Warner on working with coach Ken Whisenhunt.
