Cardinals | Looking At Their Free Agents

Sun, 10 Feb 2002 18:26:34 -0800

Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic reports for the Sporting News the Arizona Cardinals appear to have set their priorities for re-signing their own free agents. The top two they want to re-sign are S Kwamie Lassiter and RT Anthony Clement. They appear poised to let RB Michael Pittman go if he is given a huge offer from another team. RB Thomas Jones showed enough improvement late last season to make coaches more comfortable that he could succeed as the starting back. Coach Dave McGinnis also likes second year RB Marcel Shipp, an undrafted rookie last year. The team is reportedly $25.5 million under the cap so they have some money to spend. They also have 28 free agents of their own to worry about.
