Spoiler: It’s a small, small price.

Arizona got a little petty as the Buccaneers were trying to get a deal done with Bruce Arians.

What was once believed to not be a big deal in the potential hire of the 66-year-old by Tampa Bay became a big deal to the Cardinals. Per Adam Schefter, the Cards went to the league and wanted something in return for Arians.

So although the Cardinals never picked up Arians option, they almost held up the deal just to move up from pick 193 to pick 166 in April’s draft.
