5 linebackers for Arizona Cardinals to target in free agency
Frank Zombo, Kansas City Chiefs
He’s a backup linebacker for the Chiefs but he is attractive for a couple of good reasons. First, he is under 30. He will be 29 in early March. Then I like his height. At 6-3 you can get in the quarterbacks face and disrupt him. Like Whitehead, he has that good mix of attributes.
He played in all 16 games for the Chiefs in 2015 but he only started two of those games. So, adding Zombo would likely be for depth only but with the way the Cardinals linebackers have dropped due to injury over the past three seasons, they need all the young depth they can get. He had a good season in 2013 but tailed off and had low productivity in 2014 with just eight tackles. He improved on that in 2015 so given the chance I think this is a guy that could shine.
