The roster keeps getting bigger.
The Cardinals and veteran starting nose tackle Bryan Robinson have agreed to a one-year contract, bolstering the depth at the position. Robinson is a great presence in the locker room because of his experience, and assuming he remains the starter, he can bridge the gap for rookie Dan Williams to eventually take that role. There was talk about Robinson retiring — a couple of players I talked to thought he was leaning that way — but again, it’s made a difference on the defensive line to have Robinson there to talk to about things.
Having him at nose tackle also puts some pressure on Gabe Watson to up his game, now that Williams is around. And it should do the same for Alan Branch, who is better served at end anyway.
There is still a chance the Cards bring back fullback Dan Kreider, I think, but other than that, I believe the roster is fairly set for minicamp. You know, unless the Cards surprise me again.
