With free agency sort of in the rear view mirror it’s easy to forget there are still some interesting free agents who could positively impact teams.
Bleacher Report listed eight of those free agents and didn’t think any would be fits for the Arizona Cardinals.
What do you think?
Let’s take a look at the eight they listed:
Antonio Brown, WR - Tampa Bay
Wayne Gallman, RB - New York Giants
Casey Hayward, CB - Los Angeles Chargers
Justin Houston, Edge - Indianapolis Colts
Steven Nelson, CB - Pittsburgh Steelers
Everson Griffen, Edge - Detroit Lions
Rick Wagner, OT - Green Bay Packers
K.J. Wright, LB - Seattle Seahawks
It’s a good list, with three that really look like they could be an impact signing. The first and a bit out of left field is Wright.
Wright would be a perfect fit with Jordan Hicks and allow them to deploy Isaiah Simmons in a number of ways. It also could make sense for Wright to eventually take over for Hicks and play Simmons and Wright together. Of course this is unlikely given that Hicks just took a pay cut, but Wright would immediately be the best linebacker on the team.
The other and more obvious two are Hayward and Nelson who both have extensive work outside at cornerback.
They would give the Cardinals a veteran duo with Malcolm Butler.
What do you think? Would any of these free agents fit with the Cardinals?
