    Every time I see him on the field I doubt him and he keeps producing. I will say though that attitude will not be a problem up front with Gardeck, Golden and Watt

    Second-round tender: One-year contract worth the greater of (a) $3.259 million or (b) 110 percent of the player's prior-year base salary. Draft-choice compensation: second-round pick.

    Interesting decision based upon the injury he suffered. My guess is they see a larger role for Gardeck.

    he will share snaps with golden, beside that we need to draft a young pass rusher, very likely next year

    The stretch explanation is that Keim saw Gardeck as a cheaper version of what Haason Reddick does best. Sub package, situational pass rusher. Essentially, Golden at 4.5 and Gardeck at 3.2 was viewed as better than Reddick at an amount greater than that. My guess is that Reddick is asking for around the 13 mil mark, and the Cardinals did not believe the market was going to be that high and is letting him see if he can find it.

    This suggests a much bigger role for Gardeck next year.

    His 7 sacks make his role seem bigger than it was. He only had 2 games with more than 10 snaps. He only played 94 snaps and 25 of them came in the Eagles game he hurt himself.

    Happy for him. Great dude.

    but it’s Gardeck coming off an end of season ACL. Expecting the same player back this year is classic Keim Cardinals thinking.

    ACL treatment has gotten a lot better in recent years. I used to think of it as a career ender but now it seems like its more common for players to bounce back the next year.

    okay. Can you name some of these players. Preferably ones that tore their ACLs in late December so we can gauge recovery time?

    ACL’s aren’t career enders anymore. But guy’s aren’t normally anywhere near full health that first year. Especially players that depend on quick bursts like Gardeck does. And the fact that it happened so late in the season gives even less recovery time.

    Yes, ACL's have gone from a career ender to a mostly routine procedure, but you're absolutely right, can anyone name a good percentage of players coming back from an end of the year ACL and performing as well or better the next year? My guess is it's a short list.

    It's an awfully big number for a guy who might not be ready for the start of the season, and who likely won't be the same player he was last year.
