Last season they allowed only 28 quarterback sacks, this year Giants QB Kerry Collins already has been sacked 21 times.

Cardinals GM Bob Ferguson in an interview on KGME says that FB Larry Centers, who was released earlier today, was willing to restructure his contract, but the team felt like they were not going to be able to workout a deal with him. Ferguson was very upset about having to release Centers and he is confident Centers will land somewhere else. He expects the whole team to step up and play better. A left tackle to take the place of Lomas Brown, a linebacker to step in for Jamir Miller and a FB to take over for Centers remain key needs. Ferguson understands the potential fan reaction and he knows the fans will be upset - rightfully so since Centers is a fan favorite. He believes that the Cardinals offense has evolved to a new level and that Centers could have been a part of it but it just did not work out. This is probably not the last of contract restructuring for this year, but Centers may be the last of the vets released for salary cap reasons. Ferguson in discussing the third-down back role that Centers vacates mentioned that Adrian Murrell, Michael Pittman and rookies FB Joel Makovica can all be strong receiving backs.

Cardinals OT L.J. Shelton was interviewed on TV-12 in Phoenix on Sunday night and he's looking forward to competing for the starting LT spot in training camp.

He likened the surgery to an oil change for a car. His preferred position is left tackle, but he's willing to play anywhere on the offensive line that the team may need him. He's expected to compete with Anthony Clement for the LT position left vacant by the departure of Lomas Brown to Cleveland.

They still plan to replace Lomas Brown in the draft. Ferguson's contract is up in May and although he sidestepped a question about his return he said he would like to be back with the Cardinals. He wants to be around to see the expected continued improvement of the Cardinals.

The Arizona Republic reports a bizarre story that even today after Lomas Brown had signed his contract with the Browns that his agent was trying to negotiate with the Cardinals. There were even times when the agent told the Cardinals they had a deal with Brown. As for Lomas Brown, he says his agent acted independently of him and the agent knew he had chosen the Browns over the Cardinals as early as Monday night. Brown was not aware of the Cardinals offer on Wednesday because he stopped talking to his agent. Brown said there was a "big misunderstanding in the line of communication," and that as a result, he is considering firing his agents who were unavailable for comment. "They might not be my agents much longer," Brown said. "You're dealing with a person's integrity. When I tell someone I'm going to a place, I keep my word. They were the ones who said I'm not going (to Cleveland)." Brown went on to state that he never second guessed his decision. Hopefully this story, as reported, clears up a lot of the past three days' confusion.
