Plus, find out why Joseph said it was a "no brainer" to sign Watt after watching film and why he is a "perfect fit" for the Cardinals defense.
Cardinals Underground - One Big Move Down, So Now Watt?
It’s still true – J.J. Watt is a Cardinal, as odd as it sounds. Does his presence impact not only the pass rush but the culture? Paul Calvisi, Darren Urban and Kyle Odegard chew on that topic, as well as considering the unretirement of No. 99, Watt’s ability to be inspirational for the defense and the “whole lot” of gas he says he has left, how his salary cap number might be figured and what it means to the Cards, the opportunities the Cards have in free agency as they look ready to push their chips in, what it means for Pat P and Haason Reddick and again, much discussion on the ripple effect for a Fitz decision.

Craig Grialou and Mike Jurecki give their thoughts after hearing from general manager Steve Keim who spoke to the media on Wednesday. How aggressive will the Cardinals be in free agency? How many of the team’s own free agents might be retained? And what is the latest on Larry Fitzgerald?
Cardinals Cover 2 - Watt Expresses Belief In Murray
Ep. 399 - Everyone wanted to know J.J. Watt chose to sign with the Arizona Cardinals. There were a number of factors, he said on Tuesday, but the biggest might’ve been Kyler Murray.

Craig Grialou and Mike Jurecki discuss what that text message means for Murray and the Cardinals going forward. Also, Watt detailed how he was able to break the news of his signing—it was quite the elaborate plan—and the gratitude he has for the Marshall Goldberg family for allowing him to wear No. 99.
