Cardinals Bringing In G Geoff Schwartz For A Visit

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the Cardinals have lined up a visit with free agent G Geoff Schwartz.

This comes shortly after the news that the Cardinals met with free agent G Evan Mathis Tuesday and offered him a two-year contract, so Arizona is clearly looking to add another veteran guard to their offensive line after trading Jonathan Cooper earlier in the day.

The Dolphins came up as a potential option for Schwartz. However, there hasn’t been any buzz regarding the idea in recent days.

It’s worth mentioning that signing Schwartz to a contract wouldn’t factor into a team’s 2017 compensatory picks.

Schwartz, 29, was in the third year of his four-year, $16.8 million contract that included $6.2 million guaranteed he he was released in a move that freed up $2,991,666 in available cap space for the Giants.

In 2015, Schwartz was limited to appearing in 11 games for the Giants. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 22 guard out of 82 qualifying players.
