Production at the tight end position will be crucial to the Cardinals' success in 2010.
Cards Sign First Draft Pick
General manager Rod Graves recently discussed the Cardinals new strategy of doing four-year contracts for players selected in the third round or later. Previously, the team had favored three-year deals when signing lower draft picks.
The Cardinals selected Dray in the seventh round of April's draft from Stanford. The New Jersey native had 41 catches for 455 yards and seven touchdowns in four seasons with the Cardinal. He rebounded from a devastating knee injury in 2007 to become a key member of a Stanford team that earned a Sun Bowl berth in 2009.
Dray is expected to compete with a contingent of tight ends, including veterans Anthony Becht, Stephen Spach and Ben Patrick. Arizona will look for the most balanced player and is expected to keep three options at the position.
Counting their unsigned rookies, the Cardinals now have 86 players on their roster. Drafted players do not count against the roster until signed, but as they continue to trickle in, players will need to be released to scale down to the 80-man limit.
