Marcus Bennard signed as a roster exemption

Then there's the fact that all 2014 year long suspensions are being reviewed


@RapSheet: Every 2014 league year suspension will be reviewed, if deal is approved. Josh Gordon failed his drug test in 2013, so wait and see on him.

Time for Acho and Okafor to step up. Alexander is probably going back outside.

Is this has been happen for over a year then some doctor on the team failed him last year when it started. Hope he makes the right choice and leaves why he still can remember.

well, our doctors just gave him a overall physical to see if he is strong enough to play, they don't really dive into a person's mentality.

either, way, I hope Abraham retires if his mental hardship reports are true, I want to see our team win, but I don't want a guy on our team to risk his sanity over a hopeful season.

EDIT: thinking about it, I would not be too concerned if we lost Abraham. Okafor is coming back, and our outside rushing was not bad at all last week, we continually stretched the O-line, and if Rivers did not have such a quick release we may have gotten to him a couple times.

I think our win vs SD will be a lot like what we'll see for the rest of the season. Scratching and clawing our way to victories. I was optimistic about our offense but the O-Line was badly exposed IMO.

A couple of their pressures were because we left a TE on Freeney 1on1. The back to back Freeney missed sacks were because of that.

Yeah some of those pressures were situational but Palmer was under duress all game even when they were dropping everyone in coverage. Wasn't crazy about the run-blocking either. I think some of it is due to rust since 3/5 of them haven't started a regular season game together.

It will take time but hopefully not too much.

What about the rookie Martin?

He was inactive on Monday, maybe he can step in?

That beast weighs like 300 lbs now. Not sure he's a replacement for Abraham but they may consider getting him on the field in different ways to try and generate a passrush.

Maybe in more of a 43 DE or elephant position

We started Monday with two DT and CC at DE, so it could happen

Sounds like there's still a chance Abraham returns. Think we'll know officially within the next 24 hours.

#Cardinals DE John Abraham will return to the team prior to Wed’s practice. Still has to pass concussion protocol. When he does, he’ll start






We need him badly. Hopefully he is making a smart choice.
