Cardinals bring back lineman Bridges
The Arizona Cardinals re-signed offensive lineman Jeremy Bridges to a three-year contract today.
The Cardinals plucked Bridges off the discard pile last September after he had been released by the Washington Redskins. Hey, maybe that is one of the reasons why the Redskins had no depth whatsoever on their line last season. He stuck with the Cardinals and appeared in all 16 games, making four starts at left tackle when Mike Gandy was sidelined. Previously, Bridges played for the Carolina Panthers.
Bridges could be in the mix for a starting job but that will be determined by the remaining moves the Cardinals do or do not make. Gandy is a free agent and at this point it looks unlikely that he will return. Arizona could move Levi Brown from right tackle to left tackle. The bottom line is the Cardinals have more depth with Bridges on board.
