    I find it interesting in the way that players released by one organization are frequently “worked out” by other teams that are future opponents or divisional rivals. Seems to me this borders on “industrial spying”, trying to tap a player’s knowledge about their former team.
    WITNESS = Cardinals workout Daniel Carlson and Kai Forbath (formerly of the Vikings – Cardinals play the Vikings on 10/14/18.
    WITNESS = Lions workout Garrett Dooley and David Parry (formerly of the Vikings – Teams will play against each other twice this season).
    WITNESS = Bears sign Bryan Witzmann (formerly of the Vikings – Teams will play against each other twice this season).

    Too much of a coincidence to not be planned.

      I think it’s just a coincidence. Teams bring in a ton of guys for workouts on a near daily basis as a matter of due diligence, so the odds of bringing in someone that used to play for a future opponent would probably be high. Also, it’s debatable how much info (if any) that some player on the roster bubble of another team would even be able to help, or why they’d be willing to do it anyway.

      Plus the Cardinals might as well tank at this point because any wins they’d get are for nothing.

      There really is no need for the type of spying you mention in the age of internet. Everything gets filmed now and it’s next to impossible to keep secrets from leaking. Back in the day there were some great anecdotes about how paranoid coaches were about rivals spying. Woody Hayes of Ohio State was notorious for his mistrust of anyone from Michigan and of course George Allen of the Redskins had the practice field fenced off with a security guy patrolling the perimeter looking for infiltrators.
