The Arizona Cardinals are 4-1 and sit alone a top the NFC West. They are off to such a great start, and their defense has a lot to do with the early season success. Well the defense just got even better when the Cardinals signed veteran defensive end Dwight Freeney.
The move came after a season ending injury to Kenny Demens and an injury that will sideline Alex Okafor for a month. Freeney signed a 1 year deal that pays him a base salary of$870,00 and up to $1 million depending on how many sacks he records. He gets $220.00 with his first 4 sacks and then gets $100,00 for each addition sack up to 12.
Freeney is a major accusation for the Cardinals. His veteran experience will help an already capable young secondary become even better. He should be able to step right in and make an impact. This may prove to be one of the best free agent signings of the season, and in a month when Okafor comes back the defense will be even stronger.
