McFadden signs with Cardinals

Yesterday, Pittsburgh suffered its first truly significant free agent loss when veteran CB Bryant McFadden signed a two-year $10 million contract with the Arizona Cardinals. Pittsburgh has now lost three unrestricted free agents: McFadden; WR Nate Washington (Tennessee); and S Anthony Smith (Green Bay). The loss of McFadden likely makes cornerback a priority in April's draft, as former fifth-round pick William Gay has never served as a full-time starter and 12-year veteran Deshea Townsend is nearing the end of his career.
