Matt Leinart isn't the only Cardinal on the trade block

Cardinals guard Reggie Wells won’t create as many headlines as Matt Leinart, but he could be easier to trade.  Although not much easier.

Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic reports Wells is available, although he’s set to make $2.4 million this season.

The Cardinals have had an “extra” guard since Alan Faneca came aboard, and Wells’ availability indicates that the team wants Deuce Lutui to start.  (Wells has lined up ahead of Lutui at right guard in training camp.)

Somers also confirms that the Cardinals have called to gauge teams interest in Leinart.  More on that in a few minutes.

  1. Sage Rosenfels or Tarvaris Jackson and a 7th rounder for Wells. Makes too much sense. Vikes need o-line, cards need QB.

  2. The only way you trade for anyone at this point is to make sure you get that person. There are going to be over 600 players looking for jobs in a couple of days, why would you spend the pick?

    That leaves the Viks with, what, a 60-year old QB and a WR who happens to be called QB.
    Wow, your intelligence is just astounding.

  4. The Patsies need to just PAY the guard that they already have. Cheapskates.

    The offer on the table would have made him the 3rd highest paid guard in the league what is cheap about that?
    Personally I would not rate him as high as that and I am a fan!

    Ever heard of the word “or”? It means either one player or the other. In this case, it would be either Tarvaris OR Sage…. not both.
    Your intelligence is just appalling.

  6. Simple business…
    When you have a veteran making a lot of money and a younger guy making rookie money who is pushing him, the older veteran becomes expendable.
    All of the successful teams in the league are where they are because they know when to let guys go that are under-performing their contract.
    The bottom two-thirds of the league are where they are because they let emotions get in the way of personell decisions and pay guys big money that can’t play at a high level anymore.

  7. just bneed to wait 24 hours……there well be plenty of guards avialble when teans need to trim to 53…guards are a dime a dozen….
    My question is why have the raiders not signed mawae.
