Default Another Steeler arrives at Arizona...

Quote:
Arizona Cardinals: Punter Scott Player, the Cardinals' longest-tenured veteran in both seasons and games played, was released by the team on Wednesday.

The 37-year-old Player appeared in 140 games in his nine seasons with the Cardinals. He has punted 714 times for 30,752 yards and a 43.1-yard average. Player was selected to the Pro Bowl following the 2000 season, his third with the team.

"It's never easy to part ways with a veteran who has contributed to the team for as long as Scott has," coach Ken Whisenhunt said. "At the same time, you have to make decisions based on what's in the best interests of the football team and we feel this move is."

Player will be replaced by Mike Barr, picked up on a waiver claim Tuesday. Barr was released Monday by Pittsburgh. The 28-year-old Barr has never appeared in an NFL regular-season game.

He punted six times for 270 yards, a 45.0-yard average, during the preseason for the Steelers. The Rutgers product spent the 2004-06 seasons in NFL Europe with the Frankfurt Galaxy.

I knew Barr would get a job somewhere, should have thought Wiz would want him. Should we bring back the Card-Pitt already

oliver ross is down and i think i heard the ravens cut keydrick vincent (not positive though).

final cutdowns arent complete. you could possibly see kreider, haynes, young, okolbi, essex or starks in a ravens uniform. i think iwouma has been representing the special teams as captain in pre season, so maybe he is safe from being banished to the desert. not that thats a bad thing.

Default Barr signs with Cardinals

Glad to see somebody pick him up....

Cardinals release Player, longest-tenured Cardinal
Associated Press

TEMPE, Ariz. -- The Arizona Cardinals released punter Scott Player, the team's longest-tenured veteran in both seasons and games played.

The 37-year-old Player joined the team in 1998 and appeared in 140 games in nine seasons with the Cardinals. He has punted 714 times for 30,752 yards and a 43.1-yard average. Player was selected to the Pro Bowl following the 2000 season, his third with the team.

"It's never easy to part ways with a veteran who has contributed to the team for as long as Scott has," coach Ken Whisenhunt said. "At the same time, you have to make decisions based on what's in the best interests of the football team and we feel this move is."

Player will be replaced by Mike Barr, picked up on a waiver claim Tuesday. Barr was released Monday by Pittsburgh. The 28-year-old Barr has never appeared in an NFL regular-season game.

He punted six times for 270 yards, a 45.0-yard average, during the preseason for the Steelers. The Rutgers product spent the 2004-06 seasons in NFL Europa with the Frankfurt Galaxy.

If you ever played for the Steelers Whiz will sign you up even if you were never on the team while he was there

Think the agents for Okobi and Haynes have Whiz on speed dial?

It appears Ed.B. from the P-G is not yet on board with the Sepulveda pick

Let the parade of Steelers to Arizona begin. The Cardinals signed punter Mike Barr after the Steelers released him the past week. And it did not even cost them a draft pick, never mind two of them in the fourth and sixth rounds. Barr outpunted Daniel Sepulveda in the first four preseason games, but there was never a chance the Steelers were going to keep him.

They should have kept Barr last season when he was in their third training camp. Instead, they hung on to Chris Gardocki one season too long. Had they kept Barr, they likely would have used their draft picks in the fourth and sixth rounds on real football players.
