The Cardinals got through a week of camp, and realized they needed to add some depth to their offensive line.

According to Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic, the Cardinals are bringing back center Lyle Sendlein.

Sendlein had started the last seven years for the Cards, but they cut him this offseason in a cost-cutting move. He was due to make $3 million this season, and he declined their generous offer to take less than that.

It’s reasonable to think the current offer might be less than that as well, but significantly higher than $0.

The Cardinals had A.Q. Shipley and Ted Larsen competing for that job, but the level of competition apparently didn’t move them.
