Which Cardinals' player not named Larry Fitzgerald would you like to have?

In my chat earlier today with Charles Golden from 'Revenge of the Birds' I remembered to squeeze in my 'which player would you take off the Giants roster' question.

I was hoping Charles would reciprocate, because I have some thoughts about which Cardinals could help the Giants the most. He didn't, though, so I will toss the question out to you guys.

There is a caveat, though. Let's forget about Larry Fitzgerald, Anquan Boldin, Kurt Warner and the high-flying Arizona offense. Currently, the issues the Giants have are on defense. I think there are a few Cardinals players who could fit with the Giants, so let's discuss them.

Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, CB

First-round pick by Arizona last season, he has six interceptions in his first 21 games. Looks to me like a guy who is turning into the player we all hoped Aaron Ross would be. Rodgers-Cromartie sure would look nice at corner, maybe allowing Terrell Thomas to go play safety.

Antrel Rolle, S

A converted corner in his fifth season in the league, Rolle is still only 26. How does this scouting report, from Rolle's SB Nation player page, sound to you?

A converted cornerback with exceptional cover skills. Has great range when playing safety. Can be effective in man or zone coverage. Has great hands and can run with the ball. A good enough tackler to play free safety.

Umm, I think that sounds like a guy who would be a huge upgrade over 'Bad, Bad C.C. Brown' and Aaron Rouse.

Karlos Dansby, LB

Dansby's name was bandied about here during the off-season when it looked like he might be a free agent. He had 117 tackles in 2007 and 143 last season. He is a far more athletic outside linebacker than Danny Clark or Chase Blackburn. There are questions about whether or not he could be effective in a 4-3, but I wouldn't mind finding out.

Neil Rackers, PK

Yeah, I know, not a defender. But, c'mon, the 10-year veteran is one of the best kickers in the league. I think we would all take him before Lawrence Tynes.

Here are a couple of Rackers' facts for you.

  • Has not missed a field goal inside 30 yards since 2001.
  • Is 14-for-16 between 40 and 49 yards the past three seasons.
  • Has at least one field goal of 50+ yards in 5 straight seasons.

So, anyone on this list you guys would love to plug into the Giants' lineup? Anyone else on that defense you might be interested in?
