Making Room For Fitzgerald


Well as Mike correctly predicted last week, the Cardinals low balled OL Elton Brown and offered him a paltry $927,000 offer today.  If another team matches or beats that, then the Cards will get a 4th round pick in return.  They also decided not to present Darryl Blackstock an offer.  The idea in all of this is to save room for Larry Fitzgerald.  Let’s see if the moves pay off. 

I was reading on Yardbarker last night that someone thinks Fitzgerald is on his way to Philadelphia and they would dump CB Lito Sheppard to make cap room for Fitz. Then someone else decided to grace us with his ridiculous opinion that CB Lito Sheppard was much better player than Fitzgerald.  Hmmm…..very interesting.  Sheppard would probably be an improvement in the defensive backfield, but the loss of Fitzgerald I think would mean more. 

I can’t see the Cardinals not doing everything they can to keep Fitzgerald and today’s actions prove that.  Will it continue?  We’ll see.  Not sure how much more they can do without compromising the future of this team on the rise.  Stay tuned….
