Top 5 available under-the-radar free agents the Arizona Cardinals could sign
Pierre Garcon, WR
The Pierre Garcon experiment in San Francisco didn’t quite work out, and at 32-years-old, it’s fair to wonder if he can continue to be productive in the NFL. However, just three seasons ago Garcon was a 1,000+ yard receiver at 30-years-old.
Garcon has a familiarity of repetition based spread-style passing attacks (played under Shanahan, and McVay offenses), and has the game to be productive under Kliff Kingsbury’s offense. His understandings of the nuances of playing as a versatile receiver will not fade away, nor will his ability to run himself open.
After 11 seasons in the NFL, Garcon has made a name for himself as a consistent receiver that can handle a high workload. He’s also known to be a great locker room guy that can get the best out of his teammates.
While the Arizona Cardinals currently have Larry Fitzgerald in that ‘ageless legendary veteran’ role, adding another experienced receiver to help develop Christian Kirk and other youth talents could pay dividends. His football intelligence and finite route running should also be a plus on the gridiron.
