Cardinals lose another starter

The Arizona Cardinals may have entered free agency hoping to retain their own players, but a couple days in they seem to be struggling to do so.

Wide receiver Steve Breaston is heading to Kansas City to join the Chiefs, and now they’ve lost a starting offensive lineman.

Drafted in the second round in 2006, Lutui was a consistent starter on the line, though his production was anything but.

Lutui battled weight problems, especially last season, but worked his way back into shape and was productive once again.

His departure leaves the Cardinals in search of a guard, as the rest of their offensive line seems set.
