Do the Arizona Cardinals need to draft an interior lineman in the NFL Draft?

Glamorous. That’s not the word that comes to mind when thinking about players along the offensive line. And it’s especially not attributed to the guys in the middle of that group, the guards and center. While “skill-position” players get all of the headlines, and offensive tackles get the biggest contracts, interior linemen toil in relative anonymity. But in the center of...

Should the Arizona Cardinals consider a d-lineman in free agency?

In a league where the rules are heavily tilted in the favor of the offense, there aren’t a lot of ways for the defense to fight back. All too often, their role in a game is to slow down the bleeding, not stop it. Dominating on that side of the ball has become more and more rare. But that doesn’t mean it can’t happen. In fact, we’ve seen a few examples in recent years where...
