Cardinals’ search shows left tackles are like gold in today’s NFL

It’s no secret the Cardinals will devote considerable resources this off-season to acquire a new left tackle. To me, it became obvious last Sept. 26, talking to General Manager Steve Keim, as the Cardinals practiced in Sarasota, Fla. It was spitting rain.
