The Cardinals still have quarterback problems, but they’re working on fixing their special teams.

According to Alex Marvez of, the Cards are close to landing free agents Lorenzo Alexander and Josh Cribbs.

Cribbs has never found a role as a regular on offense with the Browns, but he’s an All-Decade return man.

Alexander is a versatile linebacker who made the Pro Bowl for his special teams work last year, but couldn’t get a deal done with the Redskins because of their tight cap situation. He’s also drawn interest from the Steelers and 49ers, but it leaning towards Arizona.
