Cardinals signing instrumental for improving special teams
Another key roster move made on Wednesday by the Arizona Cardinals by adding another veteran to the mix
Another day, another roster update for the Arizona Cardinals. Safety and special teams guru Chris Banjo is now an Arizona Cardinals player.
Banjo, recently of the New Orleans Saints, is someone that can certainly help this Cardinals team but by how much remains to be seen. He’s never been a starter in the league as a safety.
However what they do get is a quality backup and a quality special teams player. His experience of being on a playoff team should help the younger players on the roster.
Last season with the Saints, he played in all 16 games and had 2 interceptions. In 2017 with the Saints, he had 1 interception.
He started his career with the Green Bay Packers in 2013. He played his college ball at SMU. His signing comes after getting a workout with the Cardinals on Tuesday.
It has definitely been hit and miss with the Cardinals and signing free agents since camp began back in July. They are always looking to improve their roster, however it does seem like sometimes the team is making a move solely for the sake of making a move.
This doesn’t seem to be one of those times but the only question here is, was there really a big struggle, or at least one glaring enough, that constituted the necessity of signing a Chris Banjo?
When you’re 0-2-1 and could easily be 3-0 or just as easily 0-3, something to move the meter closer to winning is warranted. Banjo right now does not appear to be a meter mover in that direction but we will see.
People bash Cardinals general manager Steve Keim for making poor moves, but there’s only so much he can do with what’s out there. Let’s hope this move pays off.
