Cards add Whisenhunt ally to front office

Posted by ESPN.com's Mike Sando

T.J. McCreight's hiring as the Cardinals' pro personnel director fills the void created when Jason Licht went back to the Patriots after one season in Arizona.

The Cardinals, who announced McCreight's hiring Thursday, also interviewed former Broncos general manager Ted Sundquist. McCreight spent the previous four seasons with the Browns after an eight-year run with the Ravens.

The Browns fired McCreight in January before hiring George Kokinis as general manager. McCreight worked with Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt in Baltimore in the late 1990s. In theory, their familiarity could assist Arizona in finding players who fit Whisenhunt's player preferences.
