Cardinals say they aren’t desperate for a receiver
The Cardinals spoke with Braylon Edwards in free agency and have been tied in trade talks to Lee Evans.
Coach Ken Whisenhunt insists, however, his team doesn’t need another wideout.
“Everybody wants to talk about the No. 2 receiver but we really don’t get caught up in a No. 2,” Whisenhunt said via the Arizona Republic. “We run so many different packages where we involved three receivers, even four receivers, and there are a lot of times where we’ll tailor specific packages to fit the individual strengths of the receiver.”
Andre Roberts started Thursday’s preseason game and caught one pass. Early Doucet has enjoyed some nice plays as a pro and is enjoying a good camp. Chansi Stuckey and rookie DeMarco Sampson have had their moments this month.
“We’ve got a lot of guys at that position who are making plays,” Whisenhunt said. “It’s a good problem to have.”
Perhaps Whisenhunt is just trying to sound not desperate, but we agree with the sentiment. Their offensive line and pass rush are far bigger concerns than their wideout group.
