    This guy was signed as depth, as he can play both C/OG, not to be a starter. AZ drafted their Center of the future in Evan Boehm and AQ Shipley is a very good Center in his own right. After so many injuries last year , AZ just wants to make sure they are set in terms of depth which they now are .
