Is a Keim Time signing in the Cards or is it time to develop depth for the Arizona Cardinals?

As we get closer and closer to the beginning of the 2019 season, more specifically training camp 2019 for the Arizona Cardinals we all sit and wait for this year’s Keim Time signing.

Good friend of the program Uncle Jess Root wrote yesterday about three potential free agent fits with the Arizona Cardinals.

Part of that was as always offseason content, but in Jess and I’s weekly off the record discussion with one of our inside sources with the team, they told us to be prepared.

Well as things go, the workout didn’t pan out and the Cardinals are still on the lookout for the right fit, but that begs the question, what is the right fit.

Jess highlighted Nick Perry, an obvious veteran edge rusher who is coming off another injury who could be a good fit behind Chandler Jones and Terrell Suggs.

Bringing back Joe Barksdale or bringing in Kelvin Sheppard at linebacker makes sense from a depth standpoint, but at what point do the Cardinals need to start developing depth?

Can you count on every year getting a veteran or two or three to be depth for another veteran you just signed?

Have the Keim Time signings worked out as anything more than a bandaid?

Rome wasn’t built in a day, but depth is created over time and development. Not over signing someone to cover a hole every single year.

Of course, getting better is the key for the Cardinals, so maybe a little Keim Time magic is needed.
