Report: New Cardinals GM Keim lowest-paid in NFL

When the Arizona Cardinals named Steve Keim the team's new general manager, the decision was met with nearly universal praise.

Keim, who had been Arizona's vice president of player personnel, is highly-regarded in NFL circles and viewed as a quality hire for Cardinals president Michael Bidwill.

And if a ProFootballTalk report is to be believed, Bidwill landed Keim on the cheap.

Rumors are making the rounds that Steve Keim will be making roughly $750,000 as the Cardinals' new G.M., which would make him the lowest-paid General Manager in the league.

As far as reporting goes, ProFootballTalk is right about as often as it's wrong. The idea that Keim is being paid less than any other GM would fit with the idea that Bidwill is conducting his searches -- for GM and possibly coach -- with an eye on the bottom one, which is an assertion that has little backing to go off.

And, as was reported Wednesday, ProFootballTalk appears to be wrong on this one.

So there you go. Nothing to see here.
