DRC is gone to the Eagles in the trade to bring over Kolb. That's water under the bridge, no matter what the personal opinion about the trade happened to be. But it did leave the Cards with a need for a quality replacement. With that in mind the Cards signed...
Richard Marshall, formerly of the Panthers according to Urban on the AZcardinals site. In case you aren't familiar with Marshall, here is the lowdown. A 6 year player drafted in the 2nd round, he had 88 tackles last year. I've included his career production here. (The cut and paste didn't work, so I apologize about the format)
TCKL 363 SOLO 316 ASST 47 SCK 5 FF 3 INT 14 PD 46 TD 2
In looking the numbers over, this looks like a fit for the Horton mentality. Not afraid to be physical. Am I excited about the pickup? Yes. It fills a need, the Cardinals were quick about it, and Marshall is a good young player that can step in as a starter.
What is everyone else's thoughts on the acquisition?
