Heap to Arizona will help Kolb, Fitzgerald

HeapThe Cardinals haven’t been a big “throw it to the TE” squad lately, but after the team announced it had signed Ravens castoff Todd Heap to the mix, that most likely will change.

Heap, cut by Baltimore last week, inked a two-year deal, and though he’s the sixth TE in camp for Arizona, he immediately moves to the top of the depth chart.

Apparently, Heap -- who caught 40 passes for 599 yards and five touchdowns last season -- was visiting the Jets when he decided to take the offer from his hometown team. According to Ravens Insider Aaron Wilson, the contract is worth between $5 million and $6 million, and he immediately becomes a big-name target for new QB Kevin Kolb while helping alleviate some pressure off No. 1 WR Larry Fitzgerald.

It's a homecoming of sorts for Heap, who played in college at Arizona State and is from the Phoenix area.

I just paid $22.87 for an iPad2-64GB and my girlfriend loves
her Panasonic Lumix GF 1 Camera that we got for $38.76 there
arriving tomorrow by UPS. I will never pay such expensive retail
prices in stores again. Especially when I also sold a 40 inch LED
TV to my boss for $675 which only cost me $62.81 to buy. Here is
the website we use to get it all from, PriceCent.com

Nice pick-up by the Cardinalds to go along with "Fitz". He'll make a helluva "security blanket" for Kolb while he learns the Cardinals' offensive scheme. Man it would sure look "nice" if the Cardinals would try to sign Braylon to go along with "Fitz" and Heap......that would be one potent offense and a helluva WR tandem. If that was to happen,all they would need to get the running game where it needs to be.CoolSmile

Good luck in Arizona Todd. You'll be missed here in Baltimore.

This is a perfect fit. Todd Heap is originally from Arizona having played high school and college football there; plus Robert Housler probably isn't fully ready yet, so Heap can also mentor him. Only thing Kevin Kolb and Cards fans shouldn't expect is for Heap to be out there for every game. He's good, but extremely injury prone.

This just in...Heap hurt himself getting off of the plane and is Questionable for Week #1.  Or is it doubtful?
