Ten year veteran Dan Kreider was traded to the Arizona Cardinals. His contract is for a year.

During the 2008 season, Kreider was seen in a St. Louis Rams uniform, but before that was known for the big black, yellow, and white No. 35 jersey he wore for the Pittsburgh Steelers, where he started his career and played for eight seasons.

During those eight seasons he appeared in 140 games and started 66 games. He collected 144 rushing yards and 469 receiving yards on 60 catches. He only had two touchdowns but helped his team in a big way by blocking for the man with the ball.

This 5'11", 255 pound wall used his whole body to make sure the ball carrier didn't get touched.

This amazing blocking helped the Steelers in ten postseason games attended with Kreider as the starting full back. One of those ten post season games was the 21-10 Superbowl XL victory over the Seattle Seahawks, where his teammate Jerome "The Bus" Bettis played his final game.

Though he is 32-years-old and many say he is too old, his talent and skills will be dearly missed, even two years after him leaving the Steelers.
