Get the full details on the Cardinals/Steelers Levi Brown deal in today's NFL links.

The only surprise with the Cardinals' trade of Levi Brown is just how long it took the team to decide to move on. Well, two surprises: that they were able to trade him for anything instead of just releasing him. In other pleasant news, Dan Williams has returned to the team and is ready to get back to football.

Offense a Work in Progress
The Arizona Cardinals have scored a grand total of 20 points in their last two games and are still 1-1 in those two contests.
