TEMPE, Ariz. This wasnt the way it was supposed to end. Not for a local legend. Not for Todd Heap.
When the Cards signed him to a two-year deal in July of 2011, it was thought that Heap would provide a safety blanket for newly acquired quarterback Kevin Kolb, who loved to throw to tight end Brent Celek in Philadelphia and needed time to learn the intricacies of the offense.
Heap came to the Cardinals on the heels of 10 seasons with Baltimore, where he was the Ravens career leader in receiving touchdowns (41) and was second in receptions (467) and receiving yards (5,492). In 2010, Heap had 40 catches for 599 yards and five touchdowns and he caught a franchise postseason record 10 passes for 108 yards against Kansas City.
But NFL careers rarely have Hollywood endings. Last season, Heap missed six games with injuries and only started four. This season, in Week 2, he sprained a knee ligament on an illegal hit out of bounds against New England and hasnt played since.

As the playoff picture continues to paint itself, it looks more and more like the Pittsburgh Steelers may not be a part of it.
The Steelers have dropped consecutive games to bring their record to 6-5, tied with the division-rival Cincinnati Bengals. The Steelers now sit three games behind the division-leading Ravens and will face them in Baltimore this Sunday afternoon.
More bad news for the Arizona Cardinals.
Lyle Sendlein, the team's ironman center, is out for the season with a torn left MCL, the latest in a series of injuries to significant players, problems that have figured greatly in the team's losing streak -now at seven games and counting.
The problems are especially acute on offense, where quarterback, running back and left tackle...

SPOKANE – Mike Leach said BUCK linebacker Travis Long is the only Cougar he expects to be selected in the 2013 NFL draft. But would he play linebacker or defensive end in the pros? Leach also touched on Jeff Tuel, recruiting, Marquess Wilson and more.
(Eds: APNewsNow. Will be updated. With AP Photos.) By BOB BAUM AP Sports Writer Larry Fitzgerald is the most formidable receiver struggling in Arizona's impotent offense, but the whole group is contending with problems often beyond its control.
Bad passes and missed blocks in the protection have thwarted big plays that seemed ripe for the taking. Sometimes when that goes right...
A YEAR AGO today, Cougar Nation -- and much of the college football world, for that matter -- was abuzz with the news Mike Leach and his famed Air Raid were coming to Pullman.
