Adding to the front office

Posted by Darren Urban on February 6, 2013 – 9:35 am

The Cardinals have made a pair of new additions to the front office: Mike Disner as a director of football administration and Debbie Pollom as executive assistant.

Disner had spent the last four years working for the NFL Management Council, and started in the NFL with the New England Patriots, where he was a scouting assistant in 2007 and interned for a pair of summers before that. He will have multiple duties, including salary cap management. The front office has a distinct Patriots flavor now, with Jason Licht as VP of player personnel and football administration coordinator Matt Caracciolo also having come to the Cards from the Patriots.

Pollom spent the last 21 years with the St. Louis Rams, including the last 12 as director of scouting administration. She too worked for the Patriots, although that was back in 1990-91, and spent six seasons working for the Cleveland Browns before that.

A chat and some other tidbits

Posted by Darren Urban on January 31, 2013 – 10:06 am

Sure, the Super Bowl is coming Sunday. But there is still time to talk about the Cardinals, so I’ll be doing that in a chat a 1 p.m. today Arizona time (3 p.m. Eastern). If you are interested, the link is right here.

— Speaking of links, here are a couple more.

* Here’s a cool highlight package of Larry Fitzgerald’s greatest hits. Don’t forget Fitz is also up for the NFL’s Man of the Year award, which will be announced Saturday night.

* Nicole Bidwill is taking part in a charity dance competition for her friend, former Cardinals great wide receiver Roy Green, who underwent a kidney transplant. Bidwill is raising money for the National Kidney Foundation of Arizona. My cohort Josh Weinfuss is working on a story for that should be posted in the next day or so, but you can also watch a video with Bidwill and Green about the situation (and maybe even donate some money.)

* Here’s a quick overview of one of the new members of the front office, Debbie Pollom, who comes to the Cards to work for GM Steve Keim after two decades with the Rams.
