  Cardinals | Arizona to work out several QBs    Sun Mar 26, 09:47 PM

Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians said there are five or six 'really good arms' in the 2017 NFL Draft, and the plan is to hold private workouts with those prospects. 'Whether there are five or six quarterbacks, that's what we have to find out,' Arians said. 'I'm feeling more and more there are a couple of sleepers who, because of their offenses, didn't show as much as they are capable of.'

Footballguys view: The Cardinals need to find the heir apparent to Carson Palmer. That's why we think they go with a QB in the first round of the 2017 NFL draft. Somebody like DeShone Kizer (Notre Dame) or Patrick Mahomes (Texas Tech) would fit the Bruce Arians "air raid" system.

  Cardinals | Patrick Mahomes works out for Cardinals    Fri Mar 24, 09:35 AM

Texas Tech QB Patrick Mahomes worked out for the Arizona Cardinals Thursday, March 23.

Footballguys view: The Cardinals need to groom a QB behind Carson Palmer, and Mahomes would make a lot of sense. He's got a gunslinger mentality, and head coach Bruce Arians would love that from his quarterback. Palmer has like a year left (if that), so Mahomes could be in line to start sooner than some think.

  Cardinals | Andre Ellington to play receiver more    Tue Mar 14, 04:05 PM

Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington is expected to be used more as a wide receiver than a running back in 2017. He will play both positions, but the Cardinals like him more at wide receiver, according to azcentral.com's Kent Somers.

Footballguys view: This is an interesting bit of news. Ellington is fast, quick and dangerous in the open field but he's gotten too banged up as a runner. Using him as a receiver keeps him away from larger bodies in the middle of the field and still makes him a weapon for the Cardinals offense.

Arizona Cardinals LB Chandler Jones' new contract is five years in length and worth $83 million, including $53 million guaranteed.

Footballguys view: Jones was the Cardinals' clear priority this offseason and will put him in the rarefied air among the top linebackers. Arizona will lean hard on their defense, so retaining Jones was a no-brainer.

  Cardinals | Jermaine Gresham agrees to return to Cards    Tue Mar 7, 03:28 PM

Arizona Cardinals TE Jermaine Gresham agreed to a four-year deal Tuesday, March 7, according to a source. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Gresham stays with the Cards, and perhaps they'll continue to use him a bit more in 2017. The Cardinals don't use the TE position that much, but Gresham's catches did jump from 18 in 2015 to 37 in 2016. He'll continue to be mostly a non-factor for fantasy owners even though he could be a good red zone target.

Updating a previous item, Arizona Cardinals LB Chandler Jones and the Cardinals have until July 15 to negotiate a multi-year deal. If an agreement is not reached, then Jones' will earn around $14.13 million under the franchise tag.

Footballguys view: Jones is one of the top pass rushers in the league. He's going to earn a healthy payday that puts him in the range of Von Miller (six-year, $114.5 million).

Arizona Cardinals restricted free-agent TE Darren Fells may not receive a tender offer this offseason, but the team could try to sign him at a lower price if he is non-tendered.

Footballguys view: The Cardinals don't really use the tight end position in Bruce Arians' offense. Over the course of the 2016 season, Fells only had 14 catches for 154 yards and one touchdown.

  Cardinals | Jay Cutler not in the cards for Arizona    Tue Feb 21, 10:53 AM

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler is of no interest to the Arizona Cardinals.

Footballguys view: It was speculated that Arizona would be interested in Cutler as a backup to Carson Palmer in 2017 and a QB of the future for Bruce Arians. That looks great on paper with Arians' vertical system and Cutler's rocket arm. However, it appears the team isn't interested in the complicated veteran. We think they take a QB in the first round of the 2017 NFL draft.

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler is expected to be released this offseason, and the MMQB's Peter King 'wouldn't be shocked' if he ends up with the Arizona Cardinals to serve as the backup for Carson Palmer.

Footballguys view: That would be an interesting move...and we're not sure Cutler would be happy as a backup. If he did go to Arizona as a reserve player, he might not sit the bench for long. It just doesn't seem like Palmer has much left to offer.

  Cardinals | John Brown now very healthy, says owner    Tue Feb 14, 11:04 PM

Arizona Cardinals WR John Brown (illness) is now 'very healthy,' according to team president and owner Michael Bidwill, who also said that it 'looks like they found the issue' regarding the sickle cell problem the receiver was dealing with this past season. Bidwill added: 'We'll get (Brown) back the way we had him.'

Footballguys view: Brown appeared in 15 games, but he was limited in many of those contests. Coming off a disappointing season, Brown could bounce back as the no.2 asset in the passing game for the Cardinals in 2017.

  Cardinals | Chandler Jones to be tagged if no deal    Tue Feb 14, 10:44 PM

Arizona Cardinals LB Chandler Jones will receive the franchise tag if both sides can't agree to terms on a multi-year contract, according to team president and owner Michael Bidwill, who said, 'He's a great pass rusher, but if we can't agree to terms that work for us, we're just going to franchise him, and his people know that.'

Footballguys view: The tag for a linebacker guarantees a one-year salary of $14.1 million this year. If tagged, Jones and the Cardinals would have until July 15th to work out a new long-term contract.

  Cardinals | Arizona wants long-term quarterback    Mon Feb 13, 04:53 PM

Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer is returning for a 14th NFL season, but general manager Steve Keim admits that he wants to find a quarterback for the Cardinals long-term future. 'You're not a GM for long if you don't find [a quarterback],' Keim said. 'I have to do a better job with my staff and the coaching staff, we have to identify the right guy and put this organization in position to have success for years to come.

Footballguys view: Keim is right, and the Cardinals need to find a quarterback of the future ASAP. Palmer doesn't have much time left, and his effectiveness as a starter has been waning in recent years. This isn't a great class for quarterbacks, but the Cardinals may select a player at the position in the 2017 NFL draft.

  Cardinals | D.J. Humphries could play left tackle    Thu Feb 2, 09:06 PM

Arizona Cardinals OT D.J. Humphries is the early favorite to play left tackle in 2017, according to offensive line coach Harold Goodwin, and OT Jared Veldheer will likely move to right tackle.

Footballguys view: Humphries career got off to a slow start after being inactive for his whole rookie season, but he came into 2016 as the starter at right tackle and eventually replaced Veldheer after he went down. Things have turned around for the 2015 first-rounder and it looks like the pick could pan out after all.

  Cardinals | Arizona eyeing Deshaun Watson?    Thu Feb 2, 04:39 PM

Clemson QB Deshaun Watson has caught the eye of the Arizona Cardinals, who could try to trade up to draft the collegiate standout.

Footballguys view: The Cardinals are obviously planning ahead to a post-Palmer era, even though it appears that Palmer will return for the 2017 season. Opinions on Watson vary in draft community, so he could be there for them at #13.

  Cardinals | Arizona likes Tyrod Taylor    Thu Feb 2, 04:32 PM

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor 'is very appealing to Arizona,' according to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports. Furthermore, Taylor would make a great fit in head coach Bruce Arians' scheme if the Bills choose to move on from their quarterback.

Footballguys view: Taylor is a fearless downfield passer, although he is not refined in the pocket. Still, with Carson Palmer year-to-year at this point and Taylor potentially being a rare quarterback with some success as a starter available on the open market, the Cardinals have to consider adding him even if Palmer confirms his return for 2017.
