He had talked to the Steelers and 49ers as well.

  1. thanks for all you’ve done for the skins Zo..cardinals are lucky to have you..thanks again goodell and mara

  2. Good luck in Arizona Lorenzo, it was nice having you in DC the last few years you will be missed.

  3. Card fans u are getting a awesome person and a awesome player. U dnt realize how much he does until hes on ur team. congrats to him and the cardinals. Sad to see him go

  4. You will be missed Lorenzo. Straight up football player who did whatever he was asked and did it well. Great character. Good luck!

  5. This is sad and his versatility cannot be understated. Skins picked him up as a UDFA guard. Then moved him to the other side to play DT in Gregg Williams’ 3-4. Then outside to DE when Haynesworth came. When Haslett switched to the 3-4, they had LoZo stand up as an OLB, then when Rob Jackson did OK in camp, the moved LoZo inside (and just in time because Fletcher’s wheels started to fall off for the first time in his career). His main job was special teams and he was huge for the Skins on punt stop and kick stop tackling (he and Niles Paul). Plus he’s a Cal grad with excellent grades. Really a shame that the Skins let him go. I’m certain he could have kicked and punted in a pinch.

  6. congrats alexander you will be missed. heads up to arizona…..u guys got a good player who can do alot of different things but until you do something about your QB situation you guys are going nowhere.
