It would appear the Cardinals are in no great rush to anoint a starting right cornerback opposite Pro Bowler Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie for the coming season. This past week former Bear Trumaine McBride became the third cornerback to rotate into the position, following in the footsteps of Michael Adams and Greg Toler.

"It's kind of up in the air," one team insider said. "I still think it will ultimately be Toler's job to lose; he'd be the starter if I had to pick. He's easily the most gifted with 'DRC'-like skills, but he is young and making the transition from a small college (Saint Paul's in Virginia), so for now they're continuing to rotate."

Our sources believe McBride has a better shot at starting than the undersized Adams, who is considered better suited in a spot role and is pretty much assured of making the team because of his abilities on special teams. As for McBride, word is he has stood out this offseason due to his versatility and competitive nature. "He has played real well, and the team rewarded him last week for working so hard," the insider said.
