The Arizona Cardinals front office could look to expand on this year’s free-agent success when the 2022 offseason arrives.

Based on what he was able to accomplish last offseason, Arizona Cardinals general manager Steve Keim should be a top nominee for the NFL’s annual “Executive of the Year” award.

Keim’s free-agent acquisitions, in particular, were downright phenomenal. Players like J.J. Watt, James Conner, A.J. Green, and Matt Prater have made significant contributions to the outstanding season that the Cardinals are enjoying thus far in 2021.

In light of that success, the hope is that Keim can continue to use the free agency tool to the franchise’s advantage in the coming years as well. The following are five potential free agents who Keim could attempt to bring to the desert next offseason. Talented players who could go a long way in helping the Cards continue their winning ways in 2022.
