I was out this afternoon, while a couple of guys with Cards’ ties made the news:
— Kicker Neil Rackers signed with the Texans a few days after the Cards decided to go with Jay Feely. Interesting that Rackers is in a spot where he has to win the job. If he would have found a way to stay in Arizona, I am guessing he would have been virtually unchallenged. Now he has to beat out veteran Kris Brown (although after Brown’s tough year, it may not take as much).
— It comes as zero shock, since coach Ken Whisenhunt hinted at as much weeks ago, but Kent Somers talked to Brian St. Pierre and St. Pierre said he expects to come back to the Cards. My guess when the season first ended was that, if Kurt Warner retired, the Cards would have four quarterbacks in camp: Matt Leinart, a veteran free agent (Derek Anderson), St. Pierre and a rookie (maybe drafted, but possibly undrafted). That ideal seems to be falling into place.
