Cardinals looking at speed track star Michael Ray Garvin as new return man

With the loss of J. J. Arrington to Denver during the offseason and Steve Breaston’s success last season as a WR, the Cards are looking at Olympic trials track star Michael Ray Garvin as their new KR/PR.  The undrafted free agent from Florida State runs a 10.10 sec-100m, the 200m in 20.58 seconds, and the 400m in 46.6 seconds.

Although Garvin played a little defense and was a WR in college (not to mention the Cards signed him as a WR) his size (5′ 8″, 182 lbs) and speed may serve to make him a better fit as a KR/PR although he would have to learn the position.  Despite the fact that I think he needs to drop the middle name since he sounds like a serial killer (just kidding), this bring to mind San Diego Charger Darren Sproles.  Hopefully Garvin can earn a spot and contribute to the team.  At least he is being given a chance.
