Free agent cornerback Jerraud Powers arrived in Arizona Tuesday night for a meeting with the Cardinals and his former coach Bruce Arians.
Powers is very fond of Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians after playing for him last season with the Indianapolis Colts. Arians spent most of the season serving as interim head coach for the Indianapolis Colts as Chuck Pagano was sidelined while battling cancer. However, despite his strong relationship with Arians, Powers will still take his scheduled visit to the San Diego Chargers on Wednesday.
Per Michael Gelhken of the San Diego Union-Tribune, Powers is still “100 percent” committed to the visit. There is familiarity with the Chargers organization as well as new Chargers general manager Tom Telesco had been the director of player personnel with the Colts for the last six years and had been with the organization since 1998.
Powers has spent his first four seasons in the league with the Colts. He’s started all 42 games he’s appeared in over that span and intercepted six passes in four seasons.
