"I think he had a very good year last year in tough conditions," Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt said of Feely, according to the Arizona Republic. "Late in the season, the ones he missed were in brutal conditions. To kick in that stadium (Giants Stadium), in that conference and be as accurate as he was certainly was attractive to us."
Rackers' agent, Robert Roche, told the newspaper that he didn't have an opportunity to respond to the Cardinals' latest offer because they already were deep in negotiations with Feely, who had his own contract drama.
