Becht chooses to stick with the Cardinals

Finally, a player who had the ability to leave the Arizona Cardinals has chosen not to do so.

Tight end Anthony Becht, a former first-rounder who played college football at West Virginia and who conducted a youth football camp last summer less than two miles from where I’m sitting, has agreed to terms with the Cardinals on a one-year, $950,000 contract, according to a league source.

Becht visited the 49ers and the Raiders.

He was one of four first-round picks of the Jets in 2000, and he also has played for the Buccaneers and the Rams.

Last season, he appeared in 16 regular-season games for the Cardinals, starting 10.  He appeared in the wild-ass wild-card win over the Packers, and he started in the division-round loss at New Orleans.

    maybe i am out of the underground loop, but how the heck did Florio build this super successful, industry-leading website from west virginia? in other words, how do you get plugged in with all these sources and such from a headquarters in the rural mountains???

    Florio Jrs. favorite WVU alum, or maybe it’s John Thornton. Steve Slaton has fallen out of favor. He still out-Bushes Reggie though.

    Finally, a player from the cards who could have gotten overpaid elsewhere wasn’t.

    …”ho played college football at West Virginia and who conducted a youth football camp last summer less than two miles from where I’m sitting,…”
    Did that give you a “Mel Kiper at the draft” type erection when you found out an NFL player was so close to you?

    He wanted to be a Niner but with Davis and Walker already in place he didn’t fit in. Not much of a choice when your only options are the Cards and the Raiders, who would you choose? Duh….

    he wanted to start, and no way could he have beat out Miller, who is one of the best TE’s in the NFL

    I go to Becht’s high school (Monsignor Bonner) and I actually was there at his training camp at the school.
    Other notable football alums of Bonner are Al Atkinson and John Cappelletti
