A solid offseason got better with the news that tackle Eric Winston has agreed to a one-year deal with the Cardinals. Add to that the Cards inking defensive end John Abraham to a two-year deal and it's hard not to be impressed by the work Steve Keim is doing this offseason.

Abraham is a nice complimentary piece. At 35, I have no idea how much tread is left on the tires, but as long as the contract is reasonable it's worth a shot to see if he can make an impact in a scheme different than what he's used to. He had 10 sacks and six forced fumbles last year so it's worth a look.

But it is just a complimentary move.

Winston is a different deal. He's 29. He's started every game since 2007. He is there to take somebody's job; it's not a depth signing and it's not as a role player. He is there to start.

The question is, whose job is in jeopardy? Levi Brown? Bobby Massie (doesn't seem likely but I'll throw it out there)? Daryn Colledge (if Brown is moved to right guard)? Some other move that I can't envision?

I'm not sure and perhaps it will take a couple of weeks of camp for the answer to those questions.

But there is no question the shrewd offseason for Steve Keim and company has continued right up to the preseason with these moves. It's too bad it may not get the praise it deserves when you share a division with the Seahawks and 49ers.
