Whenever this lockout wraps up, there will be a lot of work to do in a short amount of time before training camp. There will be so many players/agents to contact/negotiate with — from drafted rookies to undrafted rookies to the Cards’ own free agents to universal free agents — that it was going to be difficult if not impossible for general manager Rod Graves and salary cap administrator Justin Casey to get everything done.
But I had a chance to speak to Graves this morning and given the circumstances, the Cardinals will be expanding the negotiating team. Director of player personnel Steve Keim, director of pro personnel T.J. McCreight, assistant director of pro personnel Quentin Harris and director of football administration Reggie Terry will be joining Graves and Casey in the work. Obviously the more complicated contracts will be left to Graves and Casey, but the expansion will allow the Cards a chance to function in what is certain to be warp-speed work.
