Shh, don't tell anyone ... I have a secret: people in Arizona like Kurt Warner. QUIET. It's on the dee-ell.

Levi Brown, Cardinals left tackle. Brown's base salary jumps from less than $700,000 last season to $3.225 million this season. He also receives a $3.675 million roster bonus for the third year in a row. The compensation isn't out of line for a starting left tackle, but Brown hasn't performed to his draft status.
