Arizona could be viewed as a logical landing spot for free agent receiver Hines Ward because the Cardinals’ coaching staff has a history with Ward from their time together in Pittsburgh. The Cards could also use a slot receiver, as Early Doucet is destined for free agency.
According to Mike Jurecki of XTRA 910 in Phoenix, however, Ward likely won’t be landing in Arizona. Jurecki is “hearing” the Cardinals have no interest in Ward.
Going on age 36, Ward may have to wait awhile to generate any interest on the open market. The top young receivers figure to be signed first.
