Weatherspoon Expected to Sign with Cardinals

LB Sean Weatherspoon is expected to sign a one-year deal with the Arizona Cardinals after missing the 2014 season with the Atlanta Falcons.

The Arizona Cardinals have found value recently in one-year contracts and LB Sean Weatherspoon appears to be the latest cog in that trend.

Weatherspoon is expected to sign with Arizona when free agency officially begins tomorrow after spending the first five years of his career with the Atlanta Falcons.

The Cardinals are likely taking a precautionary measure to protect themselves as Weatherspoon missed the entire 2014 campaign with an Achilles injury.

The main concern for Arizona is if Weatherspoon gets his career back on track and exceeds expectations, he'll be in line for a big payday after the 2015 season and be headed out of the desert to a new team.

Arizona fans know this scenario all too well as it's already played out in recent years with players such as LB Karlos Dansby and CB Antonio Cromartie.
