Well, at least the baseline numbers are out as the Cardinals will reportedly be paying Suggs $7 million on a one-year contract.
That means the Cardinals over 30 club will account for a staggering amount of salary cap in 2019 for the Cardinals, look at the non-special teams names:
Larry Fitzgerald (35): $11 million
Terrell Suggs (36): $7 million
Robert Alford (30): $6 million
Jermaine Gresham (30): $5.75 million
Sam Bradford (31): $5 million
Mike Iupati (31): $3.7 million
Antoine Bethea (34): $2.2 million
Charles Clay (30): $1.9 million
Brooks Reed (32): $1.625 million
Andre Smith (32): $1.3 million
A.Q. Shipley (32): $1.38 million
That is roughly $46 million in cap space of the Arizona Cardinals on 30+ year olds this season.
They’ll definitely have the experience factor covered this season.
