With Ken Whisenhunt finally confirming that the Cardinals’ pursuit of Peyton Manning has come to a close (see story here), the next step for he and the rest of the Cardinals front office is to begin salvaging what has thus far been a disappointing offseason.
But don't worry, Cards fans, because this offseason can turn into a complete success with the right moves over the coming days.
Remember, this is a Cardinals team that showed a ton of promise at the end of the season, and the loss of Manning should by no means stunt our expectations for the Cardinals’ 2012 campaign.
With the right moves in free agency, the Cardinals can rescue their offseason and confirm they will be legitimate contenders come December.
So allow me to present my five-step plan to save the Cardinals’ offseason.
Note: Now, before I begin, let me note that I am going to refrain from introducing salary cap numbers into the equation. The reason is that I am simply unable to give you adequate (in terms of accuracy) figures, so bear in mind that the situations I present are wholly hypothetical and subject to…well, impossibility.
