Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald finished the 2016 season with 107 receptions, which was the most in the NFL.

  Cardinals | Andre Ellington to become free agent    Sun Jan 15, 06:03 PM

Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington will be an unrestricted free agent Thursday, March 9, at 4 p.m. EST.

Footballguys view: The speedy back could use a change of scenery if he wants a larger role. He was the primary backup to David Johnson this year and had a career-low 96 yards rushing and a career-low 85 yards receiving. He may get a chance to compete for a starting role somewhere else in 2017. Ellington will have a lot to prove as the RB position is always cramped, will get more cramped with a great RB class coming in, and Ellington's injury history is also a concern.

  Cardinals | Jermaine Gresham primed to hit market    Sun Jan 15, 05:58 PM

Arizona Cardinals RB Jermaine Gresham will be an unrestricted free agent Thursday, March 9, at 4 p.m. EST.

Footballguys view: Gresham seemed to fit with the Cardinals, and we think they could bring him back for a good price.

  Cardinals | Chris Johnson set to be FA    Sun Jan 15, 05:54 PM

Arizona Cardinals RB Chris Johnson will be an unrestricted free agent Thursday, March 9, at 4 p.m. EST.

Footballguys view: At 31-years old, Johnson still feels like he has something to prove. Over the last two years, Johnson has played in only 15 games. In 2016, Johnson was limited to four games as a groin injury that required surgery cut his season short. He should get a shot somewhere, but it might not be until training camp.

  Cardinals | Bruce Arians won't push Larry Fitzgerald    Sat Jan 14, 11:05 PM

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald hasn't committed to playing in 2017, and head coach Bruce Arians said he won't try to convince Fitzgerald to return because the decision to play should be his call.

Footballguys view: We don't think Fitzgerald is done...at least we hope not. The Cardinals are likely to keep most of the band together for yet another run in 2017. They could make a push for the playoffs with an aging Carson Palmer if Fitzgerald keeps playing.

  Cardinals | Daryl Washington to apply for reinstatement    Mon Jan 9, 08:32 PM

Arizona Cardinals LB Daryl Washington will apply for reinstatement in March, when the new NFL calendar begins. 'I'm optimistic moving forward when it comes to being reinstated in 2017,' Washington said. Washington has been suspended since May 30, 2014, for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy multiple times. Furthermore, the linebacker pleaded guilty to aggravated assault in March of 2014. He subsequently completed a 36-week domestic violence program and submitted to drug and alcohol testing without incident, according to court documents.

  Cardinals | Arizona in the QB market?    Sun Jan 8, 07:32 PM

Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer is under contract through 2018, but head coach Bruce Arians said in his postseason news conference that the team needs to find a successor for Palmer.

Footballguys view: Arians is right as Palmer is nearing the end of the line. They don't have a successor on the roster, so looking for that player is a must. The draft isn't a great class of QBs this year, but we expect three to go off the board in the first round. Arizona has the 13th-overall pick, and a passer like DeShone Kizer (Notre Dame) could be their selection.

  Cardinals | Protection key for Carson Palmer    Sun Jan 8, 07:23 PM

Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer threw 16 touchdowns and four interceptions in the eight games when he was sacked fewer than three times, and he threw 10 touchdowns and 10 interceptions in the eight games when he was sacked three times or more.

  Cardinals | Chris Johnson to be free agent    Sun Jan 8, 03:45 PM

Arizona Cardinals RB Chris Johnson will be an unrestricted free agent Thursday, March 9, at 4 p.m. EST.

Footballguys view: Johnson is 31 years old and has only played in 15 games over the last two years. This season was cut short by sports hernia surgery. The speedy veteran did flash when given the ball with the Cardinals, and any team in need of a part-time playmaker should have interest.

  Cardinals | Jermaine Gresham to be UFA    Sun Jan 8, 03:43 PM

Arizona Cardinals TE Jermaine Gresham will be an unrestricted free agent Thursday, March 9, at 4 p.m. EST.

Footballguys view: Gresham was used a lot more for the Cardinals than he was in 2015. He caught 37 passes for 391 yards but only scored two touchdowns. Gresham isn't a good blocker, but he's a big-bodied receiver who can help move the chains. No matter where he goes in 2017, we can't imagine Gresham being a fantasy factor.

  Cardinals | Arizona adds Aaron Dobson    Thu Jan 5, 12:31 PM

Free-agent WB Aaron Dobson (Patriots) signed a Reserve/Future contract with the Arizona Cardinals Thursday, Jan. 5. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Dobson winds up where now-Patriots (and former Cardinals) WR Michael Floyd was. He's had a problem with drops dating back to his days in college at Marshall. Dobson did not fix those problems, and he did not mesh well with QB Tom Brady. We're not counting on him to ignite his pro career, although a change of scenery will give us more data points. Dynasty owners should be monitoring Dobson.

  Cardinals | David Johnson king of Arizona running backs    Wed Jan 4, 06:39 PM

Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson set single-season franchise records in scrimmage yards (2,118), rushing touchdowns (16) and total touchdowns (20) in 2016.

Footballguys view: Johnson's season ended with an injury, but his recovery should have him back in action before you know it. He's a top fantasy RB again next year and most certainly a consideration for the no.1 overall pick in any draft format.

  Cardinals | Larry Fitzgerald won't alter preparation    Tue Jan 3, 11:45 PM

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald indicated he won't make any changes to his offseason approach heading into the 2017 season. Now 33, Fitzgerald has yet to fully commit to playing next year.

Footballguys view: Fitzgerald has to be considering retirement again, but he's still capable of playing at a high level. We get the feeling that he will return one more time in 2017.

  Cardinals | Arizona retains five players    Tue Jan 3, 02:33 PM

  Cardinals | Chandler Jones not going anywhere    Mon Jan 2, 01:54 PM

Arizona Cardinals LB Chandler Jones will receive the franchise tag in the event the team isn't able to reach a long-term deal with him by March, according to head coach Bruce Arians.

Footballguys view: Jones had 11 sacks in his first year with the team, and even more could be on the horizon. We should see the two sides work diligently to get a long-term deal done.

  Cardinals | David Johnson escapes with sprained MCL    Mon Jan 2, 01:34 PM

Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson (knee) has been diagnosed with a sprained MCL and will not require surgery. He will sit out the Pro Bowl but is only expected to need six to eight weeks of rehab.

Footballguys view: Johnson avoids a major injury scare here...and fantasy owners can breathe a sigh of relief. With two months of rest, Johnson should be available for OTAs later in 2017. All signs point to him being his old self with next year kicks off, and that's means he's easily an RB1 and candidate for no.1 overall pick in 2017 fantasy drafts.

  Cardinals | Evan Mathis calls it a career    Mon Jan 2, 01:18 PM

Arizona Cardinals OG Evan Mathis announced his retirement from the NFL on Monday, Jan. 2.

  Cardinals | Good news for David Johnson    Sun Jan 1, 07:26 PM

Updating a previous report, Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson (knee) had initial tests on his injured knee Sunday, Jan. 1. The tests revealed meniscus damage, but his anterior cruciate ligament remained intact, according to a source. Johnson will have an MRI for further clarity Monday, Jan. 2.

Footballguys view: The good news here is that Johnson won't have to have ACL surgery, which might have endangered his status for Week 1 next year.

  Cardinals | David Johnson carted off    Sun Jan 1, 05:00 PM

Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson (knee) was carted off the field after suffering a knee injury during the team's Week 17 game.

Footballguys view: Week 17 could be brutal for 2017 drafts if this is a serious injury that affects the 2016 fantasy MVP through the summer. Kerwynn Williams is getting work with Andre Ellington mixed in while Johnson is out.
