- Add former Rams tight end Anthony Becht and former Seahawks center Donovan Raiola to the list of players the Cardinals have signed to contracts. Guard Elton Brown and defensive tackle Rodney Leisle were the others. The team announced the moves. All four signed one-year contracts. Becht can be a strong blocking tight end. He might provide insurance while Stephen Spach recovers from knee surgery.
- One more note on Becht: Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt coached tight ends for the Jets when they drafted Becht in 2000.
- Seahawks president Tim Ruskell was also attending the workout for Georgia quarterback Matthew Stafford. We previously noted that offensive coordinator Greg Knapp was there.
- Free-agent 49ers cornerback Donald Strickland paid a visit to the Titans.
- The Rams signed tackle Daren Heerspink. He signed with the Dolphins last season as an undrafted free agent from Portland State. The Rams now have nine offensive linemen.
