Totally. Much Better to spend 6 million dollars on Derek Kennard and 2 million on an even bigger fluke coming off an ACL surgery THIS calendar year.

1)I'm pretty sure he wouldn't have accepted the 1 year 8 mil contract from the Cardinals
He didn't realize the market was nothing special for him and he wouldn't have signed a prove it deal with the Cardinals

2)I think u underestimate gardeck, in the few snaps he played he looked to be unstoppable
Certainly the injury is the, reason he wasn't signed for more, there is a chance he can contribute rather sooner then later, he is a high energy guy and can go against the odds e recover early in the, season

So Jones did not show for OTA's.

Pretty good indication he is not happy with his contract situation.

This is literally a clickbait speculation article from one of the least reputable sources in media but ok.

Correct. He has a total of 8 posts on Instagram. There is no before with Cardinals stuff.

Only people looking to back up their own internet blogging assumptions

You can make of it whatever you like but last week his IG profile image had him in uniform and his header said,

Father, Son, Brother, Friend & #55 All-Pro LB for the Arizona Cardinals. (Ephesians 6:11)

This week it says,

Father, Son, Brother, Friend (Ephesians 6:11)

Maybe it's nothing to do with him contract but either way someone purposefully changed his profile image and deleted the reference to him being a linebacker for the Cardinals while changing nothing else.

I am fully onboard cutting Kennard. He was given way to much money and did absolutely nothing.

The 2 million for the bigger fluke produced more pass rushes per snap by a lot. So he is a hell of a lot better bargain - especially for a player that is only a pass rusher.

You can't have it both ways - if you believe Reddick's stats were not a fluke - because he had one season where he did anything, than you should not doubt Gardeck who had 7 sacks in consideribly less snaps.

If you want say they are both flukes fine - they might be, but I know which is the better bargain.

Cutting Kennard doesn't save anything. His contract is fully guaranteed.

For me they should give him the deal he deserves based on all the years before last year.

He's a team captain and locker room leader. Well respected throughout the org. It does no good to short change a guy like that.

At the very least they should give him a short extension with guaranteed money. He has no guarantees at the moment which is surely his biggest concern.

When a player is over 30 doesn't have much leverage, especially coming from a season ending injury and a bunch of subpar game

If this was a running back tailing off or a WR2 then I'd agree but this is the defensive captain, someone dedicated to the team that players look up to.

Being cheap with players like that is counter productive.

And frankly they need him motivated this year and back next year. They have nobody coming through.
