Cardinals announce Steve Keim is new GM

And, we have our first general manager hiring of the offseason.

The Cardinals just announced that vice president of player personnel Steve Keim has been named their new GM, an in-house promotion for a man who has been with the team since 1999.

Word got out that they were negotiating earlier today, and he apparently chose to stay at home rather than pursue opportunities elsewhere. He had interviewed with Jacksonville.

The hiring leaves the Jaguars, Jets, Chiefs, Browns, Chargers and Panthers looking for a GM.
