The Cardinals have balked from investing along the offensive line in the draft, a preview of who…
Cardinals Offseason Update
TRANSITION PLAYER: None.
UNRESTRICTED FREE AGENTS
--S Hamza Abdullah is a decent special teams player who doesn't play much on defense. A solid backup who could return.
--OLB Clark Haggans is 35 and likely has lost his starting job to O'Brien Schofield. But Haggans is in good shape and could continue to mentor young players.
--DE Vonnie Holliday is 36 but performed well as a backup. He wants to play at least another year and the Cardinals might accommodate him. He's great with young players, too.
--RT Brandon Keith has struggled with injuries the last two seasons. He has athletic ability but hasn't been consistent. The team would like him back but want him to compete for the job.
--CB Joey Porter lost his starting job last season and then went on injured reserve with a knee injury. It looks like his career is over.
--RB Chester Taylor isn't expected back. The team already has Beanie Wells, Ryan Williams, LaRod Stephens-Howling and Alfonso Smith. There doesn't seem to be room for Taylor, 32.
--OG Floyd Womack spent the season on injured reserve and could be brought back. The team will look elsewhere for help first, however.
