In their press conferences at the NFL Combine, both Ken Whisenhunt and Rod Graves announced that they want Levi Brown to come back.
It comes as no surprise seeing as Levi was Ken Whisenhunts first Draft selection. Brown played much better over the last 7-8 games of the season.I'm sure they're hoping, just as we all are that he has turned that corner and is now the player we need him to be.
Also brought up was that Rod Graves believes it imperative that both corner Richard Marshall, and defensive end Calais Campbell be re-signed. Talks are still going on between Campbell and the Cardinals, but as to where those talks are Graves didn't touch on that.
The last big thing that Whisenhunt and Graves were asked about was the QB situation. As many of us recall that it has been the subject of the combine press conference for the past two years. Last year it was how we could upgrade over Derek Anderson, the year prior it was how to replace Kurt Warmer. This year it's who will the Cardinals role with, Kolb, Skelton, or Manning. When asked about it Graves danced around by saying, “We’ve got an outstanding group of quarterbacks with us right now. We believe we can win with those quarterbacks, and, you know, we’re preparing as if they’re going to be the group we’re working with. And, we’ll see other opportunities present themselves if that happens.” You can take it as you may but this to me means "we'll consider him but won't court him heavily".
