The Arizona Cardinals - or as I'm mandated to call them, the Buzzsaw - have signed Edgerrin James to a four-year deal. Financial details aren't available, but I'm guessing it takes a hell of a lot of money to get a marquee player to sign in Arizona. It's the biggest splash the Cardinals have made since they re-signed Rod Tidwell.
The Buzzsaw will certainly be loaded at the offensive skill positions; at least the ones that aren't the quarterback. They've also signed guard Milford Brown (who I believe is the world's greatest athlete named "Milford"), as well as defensive tackle Kendrick Clancy.
It seems like the Buzzsaw is headed in the right direction, but it's just so difficult to imagine them actually being, you know... decent. It feels like an inherent contradiction. But congratulations to the Cardinals fans out there. May the offseason not be the highlight of your football year.
