Karney likes Cardinals but will visit Rams


Posted by ESPN.com's Mike Sando

Mike Karney has something in common with quite a few Cardinals fans: He would like to play for the team. Unlike most fans, Karney has a chance, at least in theory.

The veteran fullback is a free agent after the Saints released him. Cardinals fullback Terrelle Smith is an unrestricted free agent. Another fullback, Tim Castille, remains on the roster.

Arizona hasn't made fullback a priority this offseason, for good reason. The team has had a few more pressing matters on its radar, such as re-signing its quarterback.

Karney played at Arizona State. He lives in Arizona. He's on the record saying he wants to play for the Cardinals. The Rams and Seahawks appear more active in considering options at the position. Karney is scheduled to visit the Rams on Tuesday.
