Arizona Cardinals Add Veteran Offensive Lineman Oliver Ross

The Arizona Cardinals aren't letting the fact that they've already got well over 80 players on the roster slow them down from acquiring more players. Just one day after adding Carlton Medder and inviting Dominique Byrd to mini-camp, they've signed 35 year old offensive tackle/guard, Oliver Ross. Ross hasn't played in the NFL since 2006 but he's got numerous ties to the Ken Whisenhunt and Russ Grimm after playing with the Steelers (2000 to 2004) and Cardinals (2005 & 2006). He spent the 2007 season on the injured reserve and spent part of the 2008 season with the Patriots, although he didn't appear in a game.

The signing of Ross means the Cardinals currently have 14 offensive linemen on the roster. Needless to say they've got the 'quantity' aspect covered, but we'll see how many of them end up having an 'quality' to their game.
