Last week the Raiders shipped a third round pick to the Browns in exchange for the rights to OLB Kamerion Wimbley. As it turns out, the Raiders weren't the only ones interested.
According to the Cleveland Plain-Dealer, the Cardinals were one of the teams in the running acquire him.
The hang-up was that Wimbley is entering the final year of his contract. The Cardinals wouldn't agree to a trade without a contract in place and apparently that was an issue.
SB Nation's Cardinals community, Revenge of the Birds, has a couple of questions in light of the report.
I would've loved this trade if a long term deal could've happened. Two things come to mind - 1st: Why are the Cardinals targeting so many former Browns? 2nd: Was Wimbley the first choice instead of Porter?
The Cardinals signed Joey Porter to a three-year contract after Wimbley was shipped to the Raiders.
