Prior to landing in Tampa Bay, Verner spent four seasons with the Tennessee Titans and was a Pro Bowler in 2013 when he had 57 tackles, 22 passes defended and five interceptions. He parlayed that into a four-year, $25.75 million deal with the Bucs, but was cut in February.“To me, Verner is one of the best corners on the street,” Clayton said. NFL insider John Clayton joined Doug and Wolf Friday morning on 98.7 FM, Arizona’s Sports Station to discuss some of the still unsigned free agents that could make some sense for Keim to call.Clayton started with Perry Riley, a linebacker who spent last season with Oakland and started 11 games, registering 48 total tackles.“He’s going to be very cheap, minimum salary,” Clayton said. “He hasn’t re-signed with Oakland and I was surprised about that.”The longtime NFL scribe also mentioned veteran Paul Kruger, a 31-year-old defensive end/outside linebacker, who had a less-than-productive season in New Orleans last year.But the position that may make the most sense for Keim and the Cardinals to focus on could be cornerback. All-Pro Patrick Peterson patrols one side of the field, but the team has had trouble locking down the other corner spot. Last season, Keim swung a deal with Kansas City after training camp to acquire Marcus Cooper, who played decently and was a Pro Bowl alternate. Cooper used his opportunity in the desert to attract a nice free agent contract from the Chicago Bears this offseason.Veteran Justin Bethel, second-year player Brandon Williams and Canadian product Elie Bouka appear to be the in-house front-runners for the position as camp begins. But there are some intriguing names left on the market, as Clayton pointed out.

Since taking over the reins of the Cardinals’ football operations in 2013, Keim has made such maneuvers practically a yearly occurrence.So what’s next? Could the Cardinals continue to add players to their roster as they try to recapture the NFC West crown after a disappointing 2016? 1 Comments   Share   Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impactlast_img read more

Paper boarding passes could become a thing of the past after bmi became the first UK carrier to trial a new text-message boarding card system.Customers who check-in online will be sent SMS messages to their mobile phone displaying a unique barcode that will then be scanned by airport officials at security and during boarding.The initial trial will take place over the next three months on flights from London Heathrow to Edinburgh and flights to Belfast City from Manchester International Airport.If the pilot proves successful, bmi has suggested the system could be introduced on other routes in a bid to limit the amount of time passengers have to spend at airports prior to departure.Airlines in other countries are already making use of similar technology. Lufthansa rolled out text message boarding passes on flights from Hamburg to Munich and Air France has announced that all tickets will become electronic in the future.The airline will follow recommendations from the International Air Transport Association (IATA) and phase out traditional paper tickets making way for text messages with boarding information, starting in June.
