The Cardinals focused on their offensive line by inking San Francisco's Adam Snyder to play right guard (Rex Hadnot was cut) and re-signing left tackle Levi Brown. Both specialists — kicker Jay Feely and punter Dave Zastudil — also are back. Arizona insured keeping defensive end Calais Campbell by naming him their franchise player. Significant losses:
Cornerback Richard Marshall, who had a solid 2011 season, left for Miami. The Cardinals signed a potential replacement in William Gay, who had Cardinals defensive coordinator Ray Horton as his position coach in Pittsburgh. Gay will compete with Greg Toler, who is coming off a knee injury. Safety James Sanders (from Atlanta) will provide more veteran depth in the secondary. Top draft needs:
The offensive line, especially at right tackle. Even after selecting Patrick Peterson with the No. 5 overall pick in last year's draft, the Cardinals could still use another young cornerback to develop. Analysis:
After whiffing on Peyton Manning, the Cardinals are preparing for a quarterback competition between John Skelton and Kevin Kolb. With more consistent play under center, Arizona will be a bona fide player contender despite an underwhelming offseason. Grade:
