Arizona Cardinals News: J.J. Arrington is Not a Bronco and Other Random Notes

New, comments

We're still in a holding pattern waiting on news of Kurt Warner's contract situation and Kent Somers, as well as Darren Urban expect everything to be wrapped up by the end of the day. While we waiting on pins and needles though, there is some more Cardinals-related news out there to chew on:

  • JJ Arrington and the Denver Broncos never did finalize thier contract and the Broncos have moved on, signing LaMont Jordan to a modest two year, 2.5 million dollar deal. That marks the 50th former Patriot that the Broncos have signed this off season (ok, maybe that's a stretch but not by much).
  • Speaking of the Broncos, their former long snapper, Mike Leach (no not the Texas Tech head coach) will be in Arizona today. The Cardinals cut Nathan Hodel, one of the longest tenured Cardinals, after he reportedly failed a physical opening up a need at the position.
  • Also speaking of former Patriots, free agent defensive lineman Mike Wright will also be in town today to visit with the Cardinals. Wright, 27 years old, has the size (6'4 295) to play either inside or outside depending on the scheme. He's been primarily a backup for the Pats (seven starts in four seasons) although he had his best season in 2008 with 28 tackles and 2.5 sacks.
  • The Cardinals could be on the verge of losing Clark Haggans as he's in Kansas City today visiting with the Chiefs. There is some talk that they're looking at him as a starter, which is more than the Cards could offer so this could a quick signing.
