STRATEGY AND PERSONNEL
The club replaced cornerback Richard Marshall with former Steelers cornerback William Gay. Gay should be able to fill Marshall's role as a part-time starter, nickel contributor and special teams play.
Gay knows the Cardinals system, because it's basically the Steelers defense. He played for Cardinals defensive coordinator Ray Horton in Pittsburgh.
The team also shored up a weakness by signing safety James Sanders to a one-year deal. Sanders is expected to be a backup to both strong safety Adrian Wilson and free safety Kerry Rhodes.
The Cardinals weren't particularly active in free agency and concentrated on re-signing many of their own players. Recent re-signings are: kicker Jay Feely, long snapper Mike Leach, receiver Early Doucet, linebacker Reggie Walker and offensive lineman D'Anthony Batiste.
QUOTE TO NOTE: "Going through the type of season I went through with injuries, it can really affect your season and your career. That's not right." -- Quarterback Kevin Kolb on former Saints defensive coordinator Gregg Williams offering payments for injuring opposing players.
