The Arizona Cardinals made some moves in the first week of free agency which bring their needs at the draft into focus. The biggest move was releasing quarterback Kevin Kolb on Friday to avoid paying him a $2 million roster bonus that would have come due Saturday. It also gives the Cardinals significant relief against the salary cap.
The signing of quarterback Drew Stanton to a three-year contract signals that Arizona thinks they might have their quarterback issue resolved.
The first week of free agency gave clarity to the Cardinals' blueprint for a successful run at the draft. Keep in mind Arizona has two sixth-round picks but no seventh-round pick as a result of the AJ Jefferson trade with the Vikings last August.
