Number Two: The Arizona Cardinals
The Arizona Cardinals enter the 2020 offseason with just over 53 million dollars in cap space. The Cardinals have a few needs before they can be competitive in a tough NFC West division, but having the most cap space in the division is a great start.
The Cardinals have their quarterback situation figured out in last year’s top overall pick, Kyler Murray. The Cardinals struggled to protect Murray last year allowing 48 sacks on the rookie signal caller.
The Cardinals finished the 2019 regular season as a bottom-three offensive line according to Pro Football Focus. Adding Andrus Peat, a versatile 6-foot-7 lineman would help keep Kyler Murray healthy and able to perform at a high level.
Andrus Peat was also born and raised in Arizona, playing his high school football in Tempe, Arizona. His father also played for the Arizona Cardinals and his brother currently plays for Arizona State University.
Peat’s family ties and Arizona’s top-ten salary cap would make the Cardinals an appealing location.
