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.

Kolb's biggest worry is the same one he had in Philly-and that's the O-Line.  If the Cards' line plays like the Eagles' did at the beginning of the year he could get another concussion.  It's simple-if he has time he'll be good.

The rest of the NFL West is in a Heap of trouble...bodda-ching. Anyway, Most NFL contracts a backside laden so I'm not too worried it is overpay. This is not MLB where it's all guaranteed $. Now let's see if Kevin can throw him a can of corn...on the Kolb. Alright, alright - I'll stop.
