The Arizona Cardinals have revamped their quarterback room and now, they are looking to improve their offensive line. One thing we know about Steve Keim is that he has dreamt of having a punishing, road grading type of offensive line.

He has invested heavily in the position over the last five seasons and is doing so once again.

It started by bringing in Andre Smith, a long time veteran right tackle for the Cincinnati Bengals.

Now, the Cardinals are looking to bring in a little youth and athleticism in Justin Pugh:

Pugh struggled in his final season with the New York Giants, but his first four year showed that he was one of the most talented young offensive lineman in the NFL.

His best position is guard and with the addition of Andre Smith, he could potentially be lining up next to Smith at right guard or maybe even replacing veteran guard Mike Iupati.

It’ll be an interesting case to follow, and Pugh’s money is going to be quite intriguing.

He’ll command close to $10 million a season, but at his age and former production, that could be a steal.
