Arizona Cardinals GM Steve Keim reportedly has not met with Stephens-Howlngs' agent, others

USA TODAY Sports

Soon to be free agent LaRod Stephens-Howling is among those who have not had a chance to sit down with the new front office guys.

One of the thing that Arizona Cardinals general manager Steve Keim is hoping to do while in Indianapolis for the NFL Scouting Combine is meet with players and agents, as some are also there in town. It was reported that Keim was going to meet with the representatives for players who are set to hit free agency -- Rashad Johnson, Greg Toler, James Sanders and LaRod Stephens-Howling.

However, Kent Somers reported that the agent for "The Hyphen" (Stephens-Howling) has not met with the team since Rod Graves was still the general manager and that Eugene Parker, who represents a few players on the team, has not yet sat down with Keim, although he hopes to do so there in Indy.

While free agency does not begin until March 12, with LSH's agent not having spoken with the team since Graves was fired after the season ended, clearly the team is not terribly interested in bring him back.

Is this an oversight, a sign of jut being busy and putting a secondary player contract on the backburner, or is this a classic case of reading the signs -- The Hyphen's return to Arizona looks unlikely.

As for Parker, since all of his clients are under contract, it makes sense that Keim hasn't met with him. With Wilson and Beanie, it probably means one of two things. Either their spots on the roster are set for now, or they will be cut. Wilson has a cap number of over $4 million this season. Wells is still on his rookie contract, so his salary is not much of a cap burden.
