With every free agent signing elsewhere there seems to be someone who is upset at the Arizona Cardinals for not signing said player
As much fun as it would be to not have a salary cap in the NFL, be happy there is one. The Arizona Cardinals only have so much money to spend. They can’t sign every big name on the market.
It seems everytime a player has signed with another team this week, some Cardinals fans has had to have a say about it. The latest I saw was defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson. Someone tweeted at the Cardinals his dipleasure at the team for not getting him.
Please, the needs are greater. Think about that. Quarterback was priority number one. Offensive line was number two. Both have one signing already with more to come.
Those positions were the biggest reasons the Cardinals finished 8-8 in 2017. Sure, a Sheldon Richardson would have been nice. So would a Trumaine Johnson or Malcom Butler.
Thank goodness there is a cap though. Otherwise the Dallas Cowboys and New England Patriots would sign everybody.
I get it, fans want a winner. We all do. Let’s also remember though winning just doesn’t come from signing every big name out there. It takes 53 players to win, not one or two.
Expect the Cardinals to address the receiver position soon as well. The secondary will at some point need to be addressed.
Its not always the biggest names that make the most noise. The biggest move the Cardinals made this week wasn’t that of quarterback. It was the re-signing of linebacker Josh Bynes.
Bynes played great last season for the Cardinals. It is guys like Bynes who helped the Cardinals to eight wins last season. The guy can play.
Understandably fans want “names” but that’s all they are until they get on the field and perform. The history gets the players in the door but all that’s important is what they do once they sign their name on the dotted line for the Cardinals.
Whether said player has a history of injury (see Sam Bradford) or being sub-par (see Mike Glennon), all that is in the past. It only matters what they do from here on out.
