Ross, Kirtman land roster spots in division

Posted by ESPN.com's Mike Sando

The Cardinals have re-signed offensive tackle Oliver Ross. The Seahawks have re-signed fullback David Kirtman. I would consider it an upset if either player earned a 53-man roster spot or contributed in 2009, but both will have a chance to compete.

The Cardinals now have 16 offensive linemen: Levi Brown, Duece Lutui, Lyle Sendlein, Reggie Wells, Mike Gandy and backups Brandon Keith, Elliot Vallejo, Elton Brown, Herman Johnson, Carlton Medder, Brandon Pearce, Khalil El-Amin, Ben Claxton, Trevor Canfield, Donovan Raiola and Ross. Nine is the likely maximum for the regular season.

The Seahawks' now have eight running backs: Julius Jones, T.J. Duckett, Owen Schmitt, Justin Griffith, Justin Forsett, Tyler Roehl, Devin Moore and Kirtman. Five is the likely regular-season max.
