Cardinals | News & Notes

Wed, 04 Apr 2001 09:50:45 -0700

The Arizona Republic reports the turnout at the Arizona Cardinals voluntary off-season workouts is good, and most of the team's key offensive players have been there. "We have a lot of guys out there - and some guys who are going to wish they were out there," coach Dave McGinnis said. WR Mar Tay Jenkins is getting a lot of attention from WRs coach Jerry Sullivan. The team needs him to step up and he could even be the No. 3 WR if a move needed to be made with either Franks Sanders or Rob Moore because of the salary cap situation. QBs Jake Plummer, Dave Brown and Chris Greisen have been attending regularly. The Cardinals had an interest in DL Jeremy Staat who signed with Seattle on Tuesday, but McGinnis said although he liked Staat's 6-foot-6, 310-pound size, but the Cardinals did not immediately offer a contract because of concern over a shoulder on which Staat had off-season surgery.
