  Cardinals | Arizona signs Robert Alford    Thu Feb 7, 06:22 PM

Free-agent CB Robert Alford (Falcons) signed a three-year contract with the Arizona Cardinals Thursday, Feb. 7, worth as much as $24 million, according to a source. The deal includes $13.5 million in guaranteed money.

Footballguys view: Well that didn't take long. Alford was released by the Falcons just two days ago and has already found a new team. He's not the player he used to be but it looks like the Cardinals want him as a starter on the outside opposite of Patrick Peterson.

  Falcons | Atlanta cuts Robert Alford    Tue Feb 5, 06:09 PM

Atlanta Falcons CB Robert Alford is being released Tuesday, Feb. 5, according to a source. He was set to earn $8.5 million in 2019.

Footballguys view: A second-round pick for the Falcons in the 2013 NFL draft, Alford's play isn't what it used to be. The move clears up $7.9 million in cap space for the Falcons. Even though 2018 was the first season Alford didn't have an interceptoin (and he's not getting any younger), the veteran corner should be able to find work as a starter for another team in 2019.

  Falcons | Week 10 injury report for Atlanta    Fri Nov 9, 02:19 PM

Atlanta Falcons DE Derrick Shelby (groin) was limited in practice Friday, Nov. 9, and is listed as questionable for Week 10 versus the Cleveland Browns.

CB Robert Alford (ankle), S Damontae Kazee (ankle), C Alex Mack (back) and WR Mohamed Sanu (hip) were full participants Friday and have also been removed from the injury report.

Footballguys view: Sanu is a safe WR3/Flex play with a low ceiling, but the chance for a big play or two against a very thin Browns secondary.

  Falcons | Atlanta CBs can move around    Wed Jul 5, 02:47 PM

Atlanta Falcons CBs Desmond Trufant, Robert Alford, Brian Poole and Jalen Collins all have the ability to play either outside cornerback or slot cornerback in the nickel formation, according to defensive coordinator Marquand Manuel.

Footballguys view: The Falcons are looking to add some more flexibility to their formations, and being able to shift players into different positions will help that. It also means players will be on the field more and that means they have more potential to produce fantasy points. We think Trufant and Alford will probably be the most consistent earners, but will know more about how much value everyone has as we see them more in camp.
