This may end up being the best pickup of the offseason for the Cardinals. Pugh left the only team he knew before the Cardinals.
He was a fan favorite in New York but has already endeared himself to Cardinals fans. Pugh is going to be a force in the running game just as much as Iupati will.
Pugh had some injury issues in 2017. He started the first eight games for the Giants last season. He eventually had his season ended in week 15 of the season.
He seems as healthy as ever though so far during camp and the preseason. As long as he stays healthy he will be a mainstay on the line. He has started all 63 games he has played in the NFL since being drafted out of Syracuse in 2013.
He has no official back up on the depth chart but there are backups that have some versatility. His back though is holding up for now. Hopefully the sign of things to come.
