The Cardinals have added yet another tight end. Veteran Todd Heap, a local product of Mesa Mountain View High School and Arizona State, who was released recently by Baltimore, has agreed to a two-year contract. Heap becomes the Cardinals’ sixth tight end joining Jim Dray, Stephen Spach, Jeff King, and rookies Rob Housler and Stephen Skelton. Obviously the Cardinals won’t need so many at the position.
The Cardinals kept three tight ends last year, and after signing King as a main blocker, drafting Housler and adding Heap, it will be interesting to see it that’s how the position filters out or if the remaining guys can make a mark. The Cardinals have not used the tight end much as a receiver over the past few seasons, but bringing in Heap and Housler may underscore a shift in philosophy this season.
