Gilbert (knee) has signed a one-year contract to return to the Cardinals, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports.
Gilbert tore his right ACL last September, but when healthy, Weinfuss notes that the 6-foot-6, 330-pounder, who was drafted by Pittsburgh 63rd overall back in 2001 -- "can be a very effective right tackle." Additionally, Weinfuss suggests that the team's re-signing of Gilbert makes using a high draft pick on a tackle less look likely for the Cardinals.

The Steelers are trading Gilbert to the Cardinals, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
The Steelers are getting a late sixth-round pick in return for Gilbert. The Cardinals can definitely use help on their line, so adding the right tackle is a step in the right direction.

The veteran offensive tackle would have a dead cap of only $1.73 million if released, so he's unlikely to return to Pittsburgh regardless of whether a trade partner is found.
