Hicks is due for 6 million and Ertz 8 Million.... The salary cap implications are negligible at best. We still have almost 14 million in space.

Exactly, it would be no different than spending $2 million for a second rate TE. If Ertz can regain 75-80% of his playing form, we get a pretty damn good TE for $2 million and a lot better than any TE presently on the roster.

Just some inside info. I destroyed my ring finger and had surgery on the pip joint, never do this when you are 40. I went to the Fischer institute for rehab, (look up Brent Fischer) which is essentially an NFL rehab and training factory. My first day in March Zach was in a walking boot, when he took the boot off I saw a clear surgical repair of the ankle.

It took him until early April to actually start doing slight exercises. However, within the next 3 weeks he significantly improved. However, he is no where near running yet. I was just there last week. So that's why I think the Cardinals are not being aggressive, he is just starting to rebuild his legs, which are very thin right now. I think he is going to get cut June 1, and sign here. But he didn't tell me that, he actually is kind of a jerk.

So since he is rehabbing here with Brent Fischer I am sure Kiem is very clued in on his progress. ( He was talking to Fischer and Spooner) and mentioned Buffalo, yeah I was eaves dropping.

Also, Gardeck is rehabbing really fast, I was chatting with him because we were on the same machine and he said he is aiming for TC.

Now I know this is kind kissing and telling, but I really believe the Cardinals think he is getting cut because he is still rehabbing. to his credit, he spends about 8 hours in the facility.

P.S. The coolest person to be rehabbing there is Howie Long, I almost crapped my pants because we were right next to each other and we started talking about fingers, his are way more messed up than mine lol. But still, holy **** Howie Long is talking to some no body, what a cool guy.

Some people just heal fast. My pastor (49) tore his bicep from his elbow. 4 weeks after surgery his dr. said he was 8 weeks AHEAD in his rehab.

I started to heal really fast when my surgeon prescribed HGH. It's pretty awesome.
