I’ve seen people, and I believe I was once one of those people, express optimism about what the Cardinals could do in the 2020-2021 offseason, because they appear to have money. After looking further into the numbers, I couldn’t really see it. I said as much in this post. While I’m trying to express caution about the expectations Cards fans might set for that offseason, I’m struggling to see a need for that the following offseason. They should have quite a bit of money to spend in free agency.
Now to be perfectly fair, people said that about the ‘2019-2020 offseason as well, and something changed that could theoretically also affect the 2021-2022 offseason: extensions.
