Top 5 available under-the-radar free agents the Arizona Cardinals could sign
Ryan Schraeder, OT
If Steve Keim wants to continue his two trends of the 2019 off-season (acquiring veteran offensive lineman and signing recently cut Falcons), Ryan Schraeder would be the best bet to accomplish both.
A former undrafted free agent, Schraeder started 73 games for the Atlanta Falcons in six seasons. In 2015, he started all 16 games and earned an 87.0 grade from Pro Football Focus, good enough to earn himself a nod in their All-Pro team. He continued his strong play for the Falcons up until 2018, when the 30-year-old looked like a shell of his former self.
In 2018, Schraeder finished the year with a 63.6 Pro Football Focus grade, good 63rd amongst NFL offensive tackles. He then lost his starter gig to 27-year-old Ty Sambrailo.
Ultimately, the Falcons cut Schraeder due to regression and a $3.95 million cap increase. But, he does have the potential to be a starter again in the NFL. While the Cardinals traded for Marcus Gilbert, the former Steelers right tackle has an extensive injury history. Therefore, adding a veteran tackle with an ability to stay on the field is never a bad option.
