The Arizona Cardinals were not terribly active on Tuesday, the start of NFL free agency. However, much of that has to do with the fact that they are waiting on the decision of Peyton Manning, whose eventual salary will affect greatly the salary cap situation for the Arizona Cardinals.

However, even with that in mind, let us recap the first day of free agency and what was going on around the Arizona Cardinals.

The day started with the Cardinals releasing veteran tackle Levi Brown for salary cap purposes.

The move saves the team $14.5 million in cap space.

Brown, in his five seasons with the team, started 75 games. The team is still very much interested in bringing him back. Per Arizona Republic reporter Kent Somers, "Brown and Cardinals never came close in negotiations but the plan is to continue to talk."

There was a rumor that a source revealed that had running back Michael Bush coming to Arizona for a workout with the Cardinals.

It was later reported that, while was in Arizona, was not visiting the Cardinals.

Then it was reported that the team was going to bring in veteran guard Jake Scott for a visit. If signed, that would signal the end of Deuce Lutui in Arizona and would move Rex Hadnot into a reserve role, which also works because of his versatility. Hadnot can play center as well as both guard spots.

Arizona also showed interest in two receivers. Chaz Schillens visited the facility and the team tried to get Laurent Robinson in for a visit.

If Robinson were brought in, unless there were no interest by other teams, Early Doucet would likely not return. Schillens could replace Chansi Stuckey.

Day 2 may bring more news or simply more speculation. Stay tuned.
