Are the Arizona Cardinals missing out?

One year deals for young players are flying around, none with the Arizona Cardinals though.

It was just a couple years ago that Steve Keim worked his magic into getting players to play on one year prove it deals.

Now, the rest of the NFL is taking that mantra and the Cardinals, hamstrung by a lack of cap space are quietly going about adding on veterans at a discount.

Yet, it seems like they could have pulled a trigger on one if these young veterans who were so willing to take one year deals.

Alshon Jeffery was likely out of their price range at $14 million, but with all the money they have created, if you are pushing for this year, you could have made it work.

Another Eagles signing, Chance Warmack, signed for one year... For $1.51 million. That is it. Warmack, the former 10th overall pick, knows he has to show up in 2017, could he not have competed at right guard?

Prince Amukamara got a one year deal from the Chicago Bears. $7 million is a bit of money, but for quality corners?

Now it has just broke that the Washington Redskins signed Terrelle Pryor for one year at $8 million.

While you have to like the addition of veteran talent that can help mold the young players, will they offer as much as one or more of these players?

Of course, Steve Keim is generally right, so who knows.
