Arizona Cardinals Make Changes To Scouting Department

The Arizona Cardinals made changes to their scouting department on Thursday, announcing hiring and parting ways with numerous folks. Here is the latest from Words From The Birds Blog, the official blog of the team.

The Cardinals have made some scouting department changes, adding a extra body to their previous group by hiring Zac Canty - who most recently spent the last two seasons as a pro personnel assistant with the Bears - as the team representative for the National Football Scouting Service, and also bringing in former Dolphins scouting assistant John Richter to scout the northeast region of the country.

The team parted ways with scout Don Corzine.

The team reassigned some current scouts, putting Mike Boni on the near East, Kyle Johnson in the Midwest and Luke Palko in the Southeast. Malik Boyd remains a cross checker for the western half of the country, Chris Culmer remains in the West and Dru Grigson as a cross checker for the eastern half of the country.

Also officially announced was the addition of former running back Josh Scobey as a scouting assistant, although Scobey has been on board for a while now.

None of these moves appear to be too critical for the franchise, but the addition of Canty could prove big in the coming months. Arizona has typically drafted well the last few years, so it really doesn't make much sense to blow up the scouting department. These moves simply appear to be of a logistical fix for a few scouts.
