Jermaine Gresham set to visit with the Cardinals

Published Add your comment

All the rush of free agency and the date of signing franchise tagged players is behind us, but there are still headlines set to be written.

There are still some big names available as a free agent and one of them looks to be returning to the league soon.

With the likes of Reggie Wayne, Wes Welker and Michael Vick all still available, there are a lot of veteran players who could still find a new team.

One who is set to find a new home soon though is former Cincinnati Bengals tight-end Jermaine Gresham.

Gresham is still in rehab from a herniated disc injury which he suffered last season but he looks set to find a new job soon.

Gresham visited with the New Orleans Saints last month and he will now visit with the Arizona Cardinals on Tuesday.

The tight end's visit with the Cardinals could lead to him joining the team and adding more depth to their impressive receiver core.

The Oakland Raiders are also said to be interested in Gresham and he is rumoured to be preparing visits to other teams.

Who knows where Gresham could be set to land but his acquisition will certainly improve any of the teams he has been linked with.

The Cardinals made the play-offs last season but were eliminated by the Carolina Panthers on Wildcard weekend.

The biggest problem that night for the Cardinals was setting the record for lowest number of offensive yards gained in a play-off match ever with just 77 yards of offense.

Could Gresham be able to help with that? Who knows but with Carson Palmer set to be back under center after suffering an ACL injury last season, who knows what the Cardinals could do next year?

Focusing on the pass?

The Cardinals targeting Gresham is a great move but it could be argued that the team are targeting improvement in the wrong position.

Arizona were flying last year until Palmer went down and their inability to run the ball hampered them for the rest of the season.

The Cardinals were 31st in the league for rushing yards last year - ahead of only the Raiders so perhaps they should put more focus into improving their backfield than receiver core.
