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.
