The Arizona Cardinals have added some quality acquisitions to their roster in free agency (T Jared Veldheer, CB Antonio Cromartie and WR Ted Ginn Jr.). There are still a few pieces out on the market that could help improve an up-and-coming Arizona squad.

I am not saying Freeman is Arizona's QB of the future, but with Palmer's age (34) and Freeman getting a fresh start could benefit both parties. Freeman needs a veteran like Palmer to help push him as a pro.

The retirement of Rashard Mendenhall could make the Cardinals call Michael Bush. The Cardinals could use a powerful back for goal-line and short yardage situations. Bush brings power and force that could combine with Andre Ellington's speed and elusiveness.

Originally drafted by Arizona in 2010, Schofield has been riddled with injuries over his career. Last year with Seattle he was healthy and showed skills in Seattle's pass rush rotation. He is a low-risk, high-reward signing and the Cardinals could use a young player to add depth to their OLB position.

2. WR Nate Burleson

Burleson fits the Cardinals' offense as a slot wideout. Arizona lost WR Andre Roberts to the Redskins and the addition of Ginn makes an impact, but a veteran presence to go along with Fitzgerald and Floyd helps as well.

Wright could help Arizona's secondary who needs some depth, especially with Free Agent S Yeremiah Bell gone and Tyrann Mathieu who was lost to a season ending injury. Depth is a key concern for the Cardinals and Wright brings play-making ability. He won't break the bank and is a very affordable option for Arizona.
