As mentioned the other day, Cards president and pilot Michael Bidwill gave a ride to former Russian leader Mikhail Gorbachev from Phoenix to New York Sunday after Gorbachev gave a speech at the Thunderbird School of Global Management. Not only did Gorbachev get a ride, but Bidwill gave him a Cardinals shirt — which makes sense, its color being red and all. Picture below.
“I was honored to be able to do it,” Bidwill said. “I told him how grateful my generation of Americans are for all that he did to advance world peace and to improve relations between our countries. It was an incredible experience.”
Meanwhile, the Cards have started to collect undrafted free agents. To see some of the guys coming in as reported around Twitter, just check out my timeline. The Cards won’t announce their list until it is completed, and it won’t be completed until all the guys sign their contracts. Sometimes a player will agree to play for a team and then change at the last second, not yet having signed anything. So teams are reluctant to say anything until they know for sure.
One other thing about names floating out there: The Cards will bring in a few extra rookies for their rookie minicamp May 12, but they will be in on a tryout basis rather than signing official contracts. One report has Miami quarterback Jacory Harris as one of those guys.
