The club likely will re-sign outside linebacker Clark Haggans and defensive end Vonnie Holliday in the coming days. Both want to return and the Cardinals want them as backups and mentors to their young players. The Cardinals didn't draft an outside linebacker or defensive end.
The Cardinals gambled in the draft, going with receiver Michael Floyd in the first round instead of taking an offensive lineman, such as tackle Riley Reiff or guard David DeCastro.
The Cardinals had tackle Bobby Massie rated higher than a fourth-round selection and the hope is that he arrives in camp with something to prove.
