Default Leonard Davis

I just read that the Cardinals will not franchise or transition tag Davis but will let him test the free agent market. He played guard his first couple years but was then moved to left tackle(2004). He was the second overall pick behind Mike Vick in 2001 and has started 91 straight games for Arizona. Should we look into picking him up or do you feel he does not fit into our system(zone blocking). I think if the price is descent we should give it a shot.

He's something like 6'6" and 360... That doesn't fit the description of the prototypical zone blocking lineman...
He also hasn't really panned out very well in 'Zona as far as I know...

Nope! Too big and too slow for ZB system. Remember, Arizona had one of the worst, if not the worst, O-lines in the NFL last year, and they're letting Davis go. That should tell you something. JMHO!

Davis is the biggest name in OL free agancy this season and some team is going to pay him good money.

I just hope that team isn't the Texans.

.....More like 6'8" and closer to 400 pounds. I have heard motivation is a big issue with Leonard, as well as staying at playing weight which would be the afore mentioned 360. I personally think that the several times I have watched Davis, he moved pretty well in my opinion. Due to his size he doesn't fit the "Kubiak" style lineman we all hear Gary is looking for, but I think Leonard would look good on the Texans line. JMO.

Default Cards set Leonard Davis free

http://www.gbnreport.com/ - Cards to let LT walk… Arizona has reportedly told LT Leonard Davis that the team won't be naming him a franchise or transition player. That would make Davis, the second player taken overall at the 2001 draft, an unrestricted free agent when the NFL signing period starts on March 2nd. Teams have until Thursday to use the franchise and transition tags. Meanwhile, with Davis all-but gone, the Cardinals will be in need of a new left tackle. In fact, Wisconsin OT Joe Thomas is likely the player the Cardinals would love to get with the 5th pick overall this year, however, its unlikely that Thomas will last that long.

guess the thought process here?

1. wait to see if Thomas slides to them @ #5 (risky, if in fact he is their man).
2. trade up to get Thomas (costly).
3. target Levi Brown (over one month ago in my Mock had him going to Tampa).
4. none of the above (just let the immobile Leinart become another used Carr).

A lot of people are under the impression that Leonard Davis is good. Cards fans hate him, or at least the Cards fans I know. Keep in mind, folks around the league think David Carr is good.

I don't think this was much ofa suprise to anyone that this was going to happen. Maybe they are going to make a run at pettigout or a tackle in round 2. I think they are ina bit worse position on the oline then us. So the bigger question in my mind is...who are going to be be davis' suitors?

Leonard is not a good fit at LT but he can be good OG. Leonard is too big and too slow to react to quicker pass rushers.

Davis should either be a guard or a RT, BUT he doesn't belong here because he isn't athletic enough. I think he needs to go to a team that is a straight ahead mauling type of blocking scheme, not a team with a lot of pulls.

Leonard is a former Longhorn & was the 2nd overall pick in the 2001 draft. He would have been owed something like 11 million if franchised, so the Cards released him based on performance, scheme & ability to be aggressive in the offseason. “We have needs at multiple positions, as well as for depth, and we want to be in the best position us to address those needs,” said Whisenhunt. I doubt they find a better tackle via free agency so its almost a lock they take one in the draft. Thomas will not make it past Arizona & Levi Brown should also get a hard, long look with the 5th pick. Leonard is similar in size to Texans Charles Spencer & natural position in Guard.

OK here's a thought ... maybe it was just to hot for his big butt .

Maybe if he played in a cooler climate , which is anywhere but Arizona he'd be more energetic .
