Cardinals offensive line coach/offensive assistant Russ Grimm's contract is expiring in Arizona and several teams are interested in the longtime coach, league sources said Friday.
Grimm was a long-standing member of the Pittsburgh Steelers' staff and has been a top assistant for Cardinals head coach Ken Whisenhunt.

Grimm is close with new Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Mike Mularkey. With Mularkey putting together a new offensive staff, it's worth noting the connection.
Grimm also is close to Whisenhunt, who would love to keep the trusted assistant.
