-- DT Derrick Ransom, who started 26 of his 29 appearances the past two season at Kansas City, was signed in hopes of bolstering a weak front. The good news is Ransom is an experienced veteran. The bad news is that he was a central figure on a defense that routinely gave up point totals approaching 40 - exactly what the Cardinals are yielding through two weeks. Still, it's the first indication that team ownership is willing to spend money to try to improve the product. The Cardinals are nearly $12 million under the NFL salary cap, most in the league.
-- CB Jason Goss was waived but likely will be re-signed
to the practice.
-- DE Alton Moore, who spent last season on
injured reserve as an undrafted rookie, was cut from the practice squad,
possibly creating a position there for CB Jason Goss, who was trimmed from the
53-man roster when DT Derrick Ransom was signed.
-- QB Jeff Blake still is hobbled on a bruised heel that forced him out of the final three
quarters of Game 2 against Seattle, but he is expected to practice enough this
week to start Sunday against Green Bay. He would be throwing to a receiving
corps with only two healthy wide outs.
-- DE Kenny King is out
at least four weeks after suffering a dislocated toe. He was a backup who had
not contributed much, but the team already was low in numbers.
