    And yet you cut both Bradford and Glennon with the cap hit.

    The WORST part of being a Cardinals fan is having to deal with Keim as our GM.

    Not surprising. This doesn't rule out a trade, but him being outright cut makes no sense.

    Bradford would have been a malcontent, and we saved money on the second year of his deal by cutting him. Glennon had no role here at all.

    DJ hasn't said or done anything wrong. Why cut him? Who are you going to replace him with?

    I can't say that I disagree with anything he said there.

    No one will trade for him unless we trade him with cash considerations. Tons of them.

    I don't see us doing that.

    I don't want him cut. I want a new GM.

    I was listening to the interview on the way into work and a couple of other things caught my attention.


    Keim said he wants to re-sign their key FAs like DJ Humphries to maintain continuity. He also said it's very important to build through the draft. I got the feeling that the Cardinals won't be making a huge splash in FA this year. The Cardinals are not going to try and build the team around a bunch of Free Agents.

    Regarding the Draft and BPA philosophy. Team need is obviously factored in when it comes to the pick and players are ranked closely. Also they factor in the Position with regards to how hard it is to find that type of player in FA. For example LT's rarely hit the FA markets and would be more valuable that a similar ranked safety.

    Ha, how can they? Once they overpay Hump/Drake/PP there won't be much money left. On the bright side, we have draft wiz Keim at the helm, so that's where we'll see real improvement. Look at his draft "achievements" - https://arizonasports.com/story/1496254/ranking-all-42-steve-keim-arizona-cardinals-draft-picks/

    Six years of drafting, and outside of drafting Kyler (which is accomplished by having the worst record in football) your best pick is an albatross, your second best pick won a championship with someone else, and the 4th best player is out of the league! Just look at the list - it'll make you ill.

    It just blows my mind that people think Keim is the solution. It's not like he's inherited a mess and is cleaning up after someone else. Keim made the mess! What has he done over the last 5 years to give anyone confidence that he's going to turn things around?

    Well, trading him and eating half of his cap hit is better than cutting him for 100% of his cap hit, isn't it?

    Yes. This is the reality. If people don't want to live in a reality-based world, that's kind of on them.

    Although putting your $16M franchise running back on kick return duty isn't a great look.

    Not a great look, but DJ returning kicks and being 3rd down/passing down back will use him to his greatest strength, at this point. He can be an oversized and way over paid Brian Mitchell.
