    Dont give up on Levi Brown just yet....

    (LT)Matthews--(LG)Foster--(C)DeCastro--(RG)Brown--(RT)Beachum


    Can see how a tam could run behind that.

    And Brown is perfect for playing inside. His strength is run blocking.

    So what's this mean in terms of the conditional picks we traded for him? Did we just give away a 7th rd pick for nothing?

    Cardinals will receive no compensation from Pittsburgh Steelers in Levi Brown trade

    The Steelers placed tackle Levi Brown on injured reserve on Tuesday, which means the Cardinals will receive no compensation in the trade that sent Brown to Pittsburgh.

    The trade involved draft picks conditional on Brown’s health and presence on the Steelers roster.

    Brown suffered a triceps injury last Sunday while warming up to play his first game for the Steelers.

    According to NFL rules, when a team trades a player who spent the previous year on injured reserve, as Brown did, the player must be on his new team’s active roster for five weeks.

    Brown didn’t meet those terms so the Steelers don’t owe the Cardinals the conditional pick.

    The Cardinals did, however, take the first step in shedding themselves of Brown’s contract, which they had planned to do after the season.

    To make the trade work, the Cardinals restructured Brown’s contract, paying him $3.085 million in signing bonus. The Cardinals lowered Brown’s salary cap number for 2013 by almost $3 million.

    They will, however, take a $6.5 million cap charge for Brown in 2014. But they won’t owe him any more cash.

    Brown was due to make $6 million next season.

    We should just play EVERYONE out of position and GET RID of all the good players we have! That'd be great.

    I know it's crazy talk, but how about bringing in a real left tackle, one who isn't a cast off from another team, one who hasn't played for and been cut 4 or 5 times, or maybe one who hasn't lost two seasons to an injury to his arm that is integral to his position. Or maybe the key to the line are guys like Wallace (hasn't dressed for 5 games) or Whimper (Mr. Below the line)...

    I really hope we draft a quality LT in the first round of next year's draft, someone like Jake Matthews or Taylor Lewan would look great in the Black & Gold.
