Ravens trade for left tackle

The Ravens traded for left tackle Eugene Monroe of the Jacksonville Jaguars. Monroe was the 8th overall pick in the 2009 draft and is still on his rookie contract. Last year, Pro Football Focus graded him as the #10 left tackle in the league. The Ravens apparently gave up "multiple third-day draft picks".

Can someone explain how in the hell the Cardinals weren't in on this? It's a rhetorical question to ask what the biggest need of the Cardinals is (I'll give you pass rusher, so top 2 need at the worst). Why is the Ravens front office able to make a move like this, or a move like last year where they signed Bryant McKinnie off of the street, who then become a big part of their post-season success and not the Cardinals?

This offensive line is and has been a problem. If a quality, or at the very least an upgrade, left tackle is available, shouldn't the Cards front office be knocking on that door repeatedly? Give up a 4th and a 5th to see if a 26 year old left tackle is worth re-signing? Doesn't this seem like a no-brainer?

Non-moves like this are reminiscent of the same ol' Cardinals. I thought that Keim and Arians were supposed to shed that label for this franchise.
