NFL Free Agents: Offensive Lineman Rumored To Be Coming To Arizona Cardinals

While the talks continue and continue with the quarterback situation, the Arizona Cardinals apparently are on the verge of making another move in the offseason. This time it is to bolster the offensive line, a need the team has because only Levi Brown is under contract of the 2010 starters. 

According to NFL Network's Jason LaCanfora, Arizona is on the verge of signing guard Daryn Colledge. Note that there has been no announcement that he has agreed to terms. 

If I recall, our favorite guy Strohman suggested the Cardinals could pick him up. It is unknown if it is to have him battle Rex Hadnot for the left guard position or if he will replace Deuce Lutui, who could leave Arizona. 

He is 6-4, 308 lbs and played in 76 of 80 games for the Green Bay Packers

His Scouts, Inc. report says this:

Colledge is a smart, competitive player with good athleticism, which gives him some versatility along the offensive line. As a guard he doesn't have great power at the point of attack, but is able to lock on and stay connected. Colledge is a good technician who maintains good knee bend and body positioning as a pass protector, but he's inconsistent verses powerful bull rushers. Colledge should continue to play at a high level, but will have competition for his starting position in 2010.

As PFF ratings go, he was rated positively in pass blocking in 2010 and negatively in pass blocking. They rate him 18th overall at guard in pass blocking and 58th (of 82) in run blocking.
