Cardinals host WR Willie Snead .
Veteran receiver Willie Snead is auditioning for the second time this week. He is visiting the Cardinals for a workout, reports Pro Football Network’s Aaron Wilson. Wilson adds that Antoine Wesley injured himself in practice, and is likely to be sidelined for one to two weeks. That would (temporarily) add another opening for a wideout in Arizona, a team whose receiving corps has seen some significant changes this offseason. The Cardinals will be without DeAndre Hopkins for the first six games of the season, putting added pressure on trade acquisition Marquise Brown to operate as the team’s top wideout in his absence.
