The Arizona Cardinals have agreed to terms on a five-year contract with Levi Brown just three days after he was released by the team in a salary cap move. Brown, the fifth overall draft pick in 2007, was cut loose because he would count nearly $17 million on this year's salary cap. Brown has been a starter since his rookie season, moving from right to left tackle in 2010. While he has struggled at times, he was praised by coach Ken Whisenhunt for improvement as Arizona finished last season 7-2. He is the second offensive lineman to agree to terms with the Cardinals this week. Free agent guard-tackle Adam Snyder did so on Wednesday.

Arizona Cardinals resign tackle Levi Brown, sign guard Adam Snyder. Is this enough protection for the $7M Dollar Man Kevin Kolb?

Regardless of who is under center for the Arizona Cardinals this year, the odds are that it won’t be the most mobile guy in the world. As we go to post this, Peyton Manning looked to be headed to either Denver or Tennessee with a shot of San Francisco thrown in for good measure.

Cardinals keep Kolb, end Manning pursuit

TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) -- The Arizona Cardinals will pay quarterback Kevin Kolb his 7 million roster bonus, effectively ending their pursuit of free agent Peyton Manning.

Manning came to Arizona and spent nearly 6 hours at...

The way I see it, Kevin Kolb owes Matt Flynn some money

What can you truly learn about a player in 2 starts? Very little, of course, but what we’ve seen of Matt Flynn we like. He’s looked polished against two talented teams in his first two full games behind center and seems ready to contribute as an NFL starter. Aaron Rodgers spent 3 years waiting behind [...]
