The Cardinals signed former Browns receiver Steve Sanders and waived/injured safety Dennis Keyes, helping them get through practice while receivers Steve Breaston, Early Doucet and Michael Ray Garvin recover from injuries.

The chart shows current positional counts in the division, counting 49ers receiver Michael Crabtree and other unsigned draft choices.

The Cardinals' potentially strengthened 3-4 leanings led me to list Bertrand Berry as an outside linebacker for now. That gives the two 3-4 teams in the division matching numbers at defensive line (nine apiece) and linebacker (12 apiece).

Keyes becomes eligible for injured reserve or an injury settlement once he clears waivers.
