Fox Sports Arizona:
The Cardinals brought back two of their free agents Friday, agreeing to terms on a two-year contract with kicker Jay Feely and re-signing guardtackle DAnthony Batiste to a one-year contract. Terms of the deals were not disclosed.
The 35-year-old Feely has spent past two seasons in Arizona. The 12th-year veteran appeared in all 32 games for the Cardinals during that time and converted 43 of 51 field goals (84 percent) and all 106 extra-point attempts. For his career, Feely has connected on 274 of 334 field goal attempts (82 percent) in 175 regular season games with the Cardinals, Jets, Giants, Dolphins and Falcons.
Batiste, 29, rejoins the Cardinals after originally signing with the team in November 2010. He has played in four games over the past two seasons with the Cardinals, seeing action as a reserve offensive lineman and on special teams.
The Cardinals are thin on the offensive line, as guard Rex Hadnot was released last week and guard Deuce Lutui and right tackle Brandon Keith are free agents.
Batiste has appeared in 21 games (four starts) since entering the NFL with the Dallas Cowboys as an undrafted rookie free agent out of Louisiana-Lafayette in 2006. Prior to joining the Cardinals, Batiste was with the Denver Broncos, with whom he played in five games in 2010 prior to being released in October. He appeared in eight games in 2009 with the Washington Redskins and also started four games with the Atlanta Falcons in 2007 in addition to being on the Carolina Panthers' active roster as a rookie in 2006.

All they can do is compare themselves to other players of their caliber to try to get an idea of their value.This approach works for some, but it fails for those players that mistakenly...
