Cardinals find some defensive line depth with Isaac Sopoaga

If at first you don’t succeed, try to find a defensive tackle who played on the other end of Pennsylvania.

According to Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic, the Cardinals are signing veteran lineman Isaac Sopoaga after working him out this afternoon.

Sopoaga had a long run with the 49ers, and was an early free agent pickup by the Eagles last year. But he didn’t make it through the season, making an appearance with the Patriots as well.

The 32-year-old is more of a nose tackle, and not a comparable player to Darnell Dockett, who was lost to a torn ACL.

The Cardinals tried to bring longtime Pittsburgh defensive end Brett Keisel in before he signed to return to the Steelers.

    You’re not beating the Hawks, Scottsdale Cardinals – so just call it in already.

    Depth anyway. Rucker/Stinson grading out better than Dockett via PFF, their guy is already on the roster.

    Signing veterans after working them is a good idea. NFL should test its referees for bribability before hiring them so that it can avoid referees like Bill Leavy who was bribed by the Steelers.

    The next time Sopoaga makes a play will be his first one in three years.

    Typical Seahawk fan mouthing off about something they know nothing about. Scottsdale Cardinals? If you are trying to blast the Cardinals with the city they are hosted in then it would be the Glendale Cardinals. This was be a blast if they were still the Phoenix Cardinals.

    What an absolute dud this guy was for the Patriots. Better pay him on some kind of incentive system.
