Should we call Cleveland up and get a deal done?
Cleveland is a hot mess right now. They just traded away the third overall pick from last year, and Brandon Hoyer is their starting quarterback. Anyways, they signed Paul Kruger to a big deal and drafted Barkevious Mingo with the sixth overall pick in this year's draft. There were rumors leading up to the draft that Sheard would be shipped away if they drafted a pass rusher with their first pick, and they did. However, Sheard was not traded, but he was actively shopped. The Cardinals need a proven pass rusher, and Sheard has only been in the league for three years. He had seven sacks last year.
He does not have a place on Cleveland's roster, but he may have one on ours'. He would solve some needs at outside linebacker and give Bowles another toy on defense to work with. However, pass rushers are in high demand, so we may have to over spend. I say about a second round pick or a third would be a nice deal for us.
