In a continued series looking at potential Arizona Cardinals free agent targets, guard Joe Thuney is next up on the list.
Thuney has been quite solid for the New England Patriots. Just check out these stats per Pro Football Focus. Since 2018, in 2,008 pass-blocking snaps, he has allowed only three sacks.

Thuney is going to cost a bit more than a lot of other free agent offensive lineman, but if Arizona is serious about protecting Kyler Murray, it should be interested in Thuney, despite the underrated play of the offensive line last season.
If signed, Thuney would likely replace Justin Murray at right guard. Based on quarterback Kyler Murray’s recent retweets, he wants protection, and if that is the case, they need to look at Thuney seriously.
It’s not the biggest priority, looking at the Cardinals roster, but what do you think about the Cardinals signing Thuney?
