Default Surprise!! Guess where Chukky's going???

http://cardinals.scout.com/a.z?s=126&p=2&c=678454

The Arizona Cardinals are bringing in free agent C Chukky Okobi in for a physical Tuesday and if he passes it, he'll likely sign a one-year, minimum deal. The veteran offensive lineman was released by the Steelrs earlier this month.

After seeing the Cardinals center go down last night, I figured it was only a matter of time before we saw this move.

Not surprising since I think it was the Cards center went down last night.

now taking a paycut to stay with the steelers doesnt seem like such a bad idea.

in okolbis defense, im thinking hes looking more to going to a team where he has a chance to start.

good luck chuckwun. as far as nfc teams go i will definitely be rooting for you and all the other steelers with the cards.

(you would think we coulda atleast got a 1st round pick by trading the cardinals 1/5 of a franchise though.)

Here's his official comments from a MySpace bulletin he posted around 11:30 this evening, if anyone is interested.....

"Its been fun Pittsburgh. But as you know, if it was up to me, i would have played for MY city forever. But coach Tomlin and company had different plans. I guess the fact that I am here with the coordinator and line coach that had so much faith in me for the past 6 years goes to show that if either one of them was the head coach in Pittsburgh, i would still be there. But the weather is great, the people are great, and its the beginning of a new chapter. not happy to be leaving Pittsburgh, but it was time to go. I really dont belong with the Steelers anymore. BUT I WILL ALWAYS BELONG TO THE CITY OF PITTSBURGH.......like my man Wiz Khalifa said, "It all in my Blood". I love you all and i will miss you. But now its time to play, see you Sept. 30th.....HOLLA!!!"
