Cardinals: Offensive Line Getting Crowded
There is an abundance of experience guards on the team. Alan Faneca is a fixture on the left side, and Reggie Wells remains ahead of Deuce Lutui on the right.
Lutui, however, is playing well and seems to have his weight under control after checking in at nearly 400 pounds in June.
Rex Hadnot can back up at both center and guard, and Jeremy Bridges can swing between tackle and guard.
The most intriguing competition is at right guard. Wells struggled some last year as the starting left guard, partly because he suffered a serious thumb injury early in the year.
Lutui is the team's most physical lineman and it's going to be difficult keeping him out of the starting lineup. Lutui is only 27 while Wells turns 30 during the season.
Both are due to be free agents at the end of the season.
If the Cardinals finish preseason healthy, they could try to trade either Lutui or Wells. Wells is the most likely option, and the Cardinals could use help at inside linebacker and corner.
