Now Abraham on the way

Posted by Darren Urban on July 25, 2013 – 1:43 pm

After the run test today — everyone did so well Bruce Arians cut it off after two of the three scheduled 300-yard shuttles — it was time to ask Arians about possible new players. There was little to be heard. Arians declined to talk about players “who aren’t here.” That meant no comment about Eric Winston, who will be signing per multiple reports, and John Abraham, who is agreeing to a two-year deal according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. As I mentioned before, that’s a good haul right as camp is starting for GM Steve Keim.

Arians also declined to talk about unsigned first-round pick Jonathan Cooper and rookie wide receiver Ryan Swope, who also remains absent.

Much more coming later. Time to write now.

UPDATE: And Abraham is a Card.

    As I said yesterday about the possibility of adding Abraham and cutting Schofield, I stand by that. Especially since Scho did not run as part of the conditioning test. Keim and Co just upgraded our team at two keys positions in the last 4 hours.Are you ready for some football Cardinals fans? I smell PLAYOFFS! So freaking excited right now! BIRDGANG!

    I didn’t know Abraham was an OLB? Too slow for OLB? Oh yeah, he wasn’t here for the run test so we don’t know. If D. Wash doesn’t make it through the doldrums then maybe Abraham will come in handy.

    The reserved/retired list means the Cards still hold the rights of Swope for the next 3/4 years (since he signed his rookie contract), but he don’t take any roster spot?
    What if he’ll be cleared by the doctors f.e. 1 year from now? Will the Cards able to put him back to the roster?

    Corgon —

    RE: Reserve

    Correct. They hold his rights. If he is cleared by doctors, the Cards would then have to make a decision to keep him or not.

    I thought it was a classic piece of work to sign Eric Winston for the veteran league minimum one year deal when the real opportunity for Winston and the team is a long term contract. Both sides were patient enough to give this a try first. Winston and the team know he has played seven years and doesn’t miss a game. He has also got a number of quality playing years left. Keim showed patience and then tells Abraham that now we can make an agreement with him. To give John Abraham two years on a contract is a statement of confidence to the league and support for him as a pass-rusher. It also spreads the money out. One contract made the other possible. Wow, what a day!
