A recent update on the Arizona Cardinals center leaves a grim outlook for the offensive line.

Everyone knows the saying, “It’s quiet around here, almost too quiet.”  Well, for the Arizona Cardinals, it’s about to get loud in the desert for an unfortunate reason. Last night on Twitter (sounds like a TV series), the Cardinals world found out a potential update on center Rodney Hudson.

Chuck Harris, who works for USAToday, tweeted out the one thing that no Arizona Cardinals fan wanted to see. Are you ready? Here’s the tweet:

Arizona Cardinals are in deep trouble if Rodney Hudson retires

We’ve talked over and over about how Hudson’s departure from the team last season hurt the Cardinals more than DeAndre Hopkins’ injury. So it was even more doltish of Steve Keim to A) know about this before the draft and B) trade for a wide receiver instead of an offensive lineman.

If you want to know how much an offensive line can change a quarterback, I present Russell Wilson’s Seattle Seahawks tenure to you. Wilson is the most sacked quarterback since he came into the league in 2012 with 427 sacks.

Murray not having an offensive line and being more prone to injury is a bigger concern over who he’s going to throw to. If Hudson does retire and the season goes bad, Keim should be fired. There’s no reason to be this ill-prepared for a situation Keim allegedly knew was happening.

Now more than ever, the Cardinals need to figure out what they’re going to do. J.C. Tretter and Matt Paradis are options to replace Hudson.

This has an eerie feeling to it, and no Cardinals fan should like what’s going on right now. So buckle up, folks; this could be the start of a bumpy road.
