Arizona Cardinals use first waiver position properly again
The Arizona Cardinals used their position of having first waiver claims until week four of the regular season properly once again on Thursday
You could see it coming from miles away. Actually the Arizona Cardinals could see this coming from 2,015-miles away.
On Thursday, they quickly hopped on a waiver claim on now former Cleveland Browns left tackle Desmond Harrison. The excuse for the Browns release was a missed flight.
Well, that’s the excuse the Browns are using publicly for his release on Wednesday. The Cardinals wasted no time. Fans wanted, and knew, the Cardinals would hop on the move to claim him.
The struggles for the Cardinals on the offensive line have been well documented. Anytime a decent offensive linemen becomes available, the Cardinals are wise to hop on the chance.
At some point however, they will have to move some of these guys off the roster if they want to keep picking them up. It’s almost as if it has become the next man up mantra once again.
Some of these pickups won’t end up starting but will be added depth. However Harrison is starting material. He started the first eight games of the 2018 season but then was benched after they rid of coach Hue Jackson.
There was likely much more going on behind the scenes with Harrison in Cleveland than a missed flight. That’s just what they’ll tell the public.
However that’s in the past now. The Cardinals are now his new employers. Let’s hope whatever the issue was with the benching and the missed flight and everything else we aren’t being told is history.
They say a change of scenery can help. Certainly in the Cardinals case, any production they can receive from the offensive line is a plus.
Let’s just hope he doesn’t “miss” any flights while a member of the Cardinals. Well, at least flights that are related to work.
