The uncapped year and other stuff

Posted by Darren Urban on September 29, 2009 – 11:01 am

We’ve just gotten started with the season but this blog post by former NFL front office guy J.I. Halsell does a nice job breaking down what the uncapped year would mean to free agency. If there won’t be a new collective bargaining agreement by early next year, the NFL will deal with no salary cap (before there is a potential work stoppage in 2011, but we won’t fret about that — yet).  He even ends up using  free-agent-to-be Neil Rackers as an example. It would really wreak havoc on free agency, which is why it exists in the first place. It’s supposed to be motivation to get a new CBA done.

A couple other things:

– The Cardinals have converted only 10 of 37 third-downs this season, an astounding low mark of 27 percent. Last year, they were at 42 percent, which shows you how much the passing game isn’t clicking.

– Ever wonder what happened to Marcel Shipp after he was released in training camp 2008? He has resurfaced in the UFL (and is on the same team as Arizona local and Arizona State product Adam Archuleta).

– Finally, please welcome in a new member of the Cards’ broadcast and web departments. Pete McElroy will be doing both video and written pieces for azcardinals.com after spending the past few years covering the Washington Nationals.
