Cards bring back seven from PS

Posted by Darren Urban on January 4, 2011 – 11:31 am

The Cardinals are bringing back seven of their eight practice squad players, signing them to “futures” contracts today (meaning they will be on the offseason roster once current deals expire March 4). The seven are:

  • T Cliff Louis
  • DL Jeremy Navarre
  • G Tom Pestock
  • LB Brandon Sharpe
  • RB Alfonso Smith
  • LB Pago Togafau
  • WR Isaiah Williams

    Ronald Talley was the odd man out for those who were wondering.

    Darren,
    Broncos will trade Orton for 2nd round pick. Better write something soon a get ahead of the rumormill! :)
    I don’t know what offensive scheme he is in now, but he’s better than Anderson. Thoughts?

    RE: Orton

    As I have said many times, they will look at all options.

    That said, I’m not giving up a high second.

    Pago’s been with us for how long now and he isn’t on the main foster? I wonder where he’s lacking or whatever…he’s even on the team in Madden ’10.

    Did Pestock get any playing time this season?
    He’s the one who’s into MMA, UFC, SCUBA or whatever fighting, correct?

    A high second isn’t too much to ask for a starting quarterback, it’s a position of need and at least with Orton, you’re getting a known quantity.

    There are several areas (my opinion) that have to be re-thought. One of them is the scouting team. Why is it that other teams spot and aggressively go after great collegiate players but we seem to end up with second doubt players?
    A good example is Lienart–ALL of that $$$ AND time for a player that we ended up trading for NOTHING in return! Matt Cassel was in the same year as Leinart but we didn’t get him. Michael Vick was AVAILABLE last year–but WE didn’t bother to pursue him. There are outstanding players out there but it seems that our scouting team is trying to identify GREAT players with a white cane with a red tip! The second part of this is what I believe to be the crux of the whole issue–The Bidwells– it is well known that because of the Bidwells , the Cardinals have one of the worse pay checks in the NFL. Sometimes being cheap has it’s advantages (Kurt Warner ) but in the long run we don’t get a team that is effective enough to consecutively offer a good product because the purse strings are bound so tightly together that when they finally do manage to get slightly loosened–moths flutter out from it’s depths! Come on Bidwells, you wanted a stadium–you got it, you wanted fan support–you have THAT (although for how much longer is questionable), you wanted a boost in revenue on Cardinal products–T-shirts, other sports products–well YOU’VE GOT THAT TOO! What MORE from the fans of ARIZONA do you need before YOU FINALLY open up the purse strings? The fans of ARIZONA now want from YOU a QUALITY TEAM!

    Yes, he is the fighter.

    And he was on the practice squad all season, so he couldn’t have played.

    Why do you think a 2nd round pick is too much to give for Orton? If we are going toget a vet QB i would rather have Kolb first or Orton than some old guy who won’t last any longer than Warner did.

    Ortin, Kolb, young , any are better than our situation.
