NFL free agency: Which signing has been the biggest for the Arizona Cardinals?

Which move means the most for the team?

The Arizona Cardinals have been active in free agency this offseason. Let's take a look at what they have done:

Obviously the "biggest" deal belongs to Jared Veldheer, as he got a five-year, $35 million contract. But that doesn't necessarily mean his deal is the biggest or most impactful.

It was big to bring back Shaughnessy and Rucker for the continuity of the defense.

Ginn brings versatility and impact to the return game, as well as a bona fide deep threat.

Bringing back Zastudil is big on special teams.

Veldheer is very, very important because he is ideally going to be the anchor at left tackle for years to come, paired with Jonathan Cooper to have a, not okay, but fantastic left side of the line. The hope is that the addition of Veldheer can make the line from subpar and a weakness to above average and a strength.

One might argue that retaining Rucker and Shaugnessy is the biggest deal because of their role on the defense, which was number one against the run last season.

Ginn fills multiple holes. he will return kicks. He will at least provide competition for punt returns. He will take the top off of defenses and bring more speed to the offense.

Cromartie potentially makes the secondary elite (at least among the cornerbacks).

So which is the biggest deal to you? Vote in the poll below.
