Let's make sure you focus on the right question here. 
It's not: "Did the Cardinals make another stupid move?" 
It's not: "Did Arizona pay too much money for an aging linebacker?"
We're going to focus on what the Cardinals have done to affect their ability to get to the quarterback. 
Let's look at who the Cardinals had as their main pass rushers last season: Darnell Dockett, Calais Campbell, Chike Okeafor, Betrand Berry, and Clark Haggans. 
They have all of those back but two: Okeafor, a free agent who they could still sign, but that seems unlikely now. And Berry, who retired. 
Now they've added a guy who, despite his age (33), has had 26 1/2 sacks his last two professional seasons. 
To compare to the Cardinals, Darnell Dockett has had 11 over the last two seasons. 
Arizona has had many people contribute to their sack totals. In fact, this last year, their sacks as a team increased from 31 to 43.
