  Cardinals | John Brown adding weight    Fri Apr 24, 10:45 AM

Arizona Cardinals WR John Brown has added 10 pounds this offseason and is up to 183 pounds. Brown said the long season took a toll on his body, and he wanted to add weight.

Footballguys view: John Brown emerged as a potential long-term replacement for Larry Fitzgerald, though clearly with less skill. Both players were targeted 103 times last season, with Fitzgerald gaining more total yards (784 to 696) but Brown with a great yards per catch average and more touchdowns (5 to 2). Getting himself into better shape and working on his durability will help Brown increase his numbers, as will the return of Carson Palmer. Brown is a good guy to watch for as a WR3 or WR4 for fantasy owners.

  Cardinals | Andre Ellington making progress    Thu Apr 23, 02:42 PM

Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington's (foot) injured foot is about 95 percent healed, and Ellington has not suffered any setbacks, according to head coach Bruce Arians.

Footballguys view: Ellington toughed it out through injury last year as he was not healthy for the entire season. We love his talent and game-breaking ability, but Ellington is not built to be a full-time back. Expect the Cardinals to add another back (potentially a RB1) with a premium pick in the draft.

  Cardinals | Adrian Wilson to retire and coach?     Mon Apr 20, 07:17 AM

Free-agent SS Adrian Wilson (Bears) is expected to retire Monday, April 20, and join the Arizona Cardinals coaching staff. The Cardinals, the team Wilson played for from 2001-2012, have announced a press conference.

Footballguys view: Wilson hasn't played in the NFL since 2012 after his failed comeback attempt with the Bears last year. He'll likely retire a member of the Cardinals and then join their staff in some capacity.

  Cardinals | Drew Stanton could be limited    Sun Apr 19, 09:49 AM

Arizona Cardinals QB Drew Stanton (knee) could be limited during offseason workouts since he is recovering from a knee injury, but he should be able to do some things during the workouts.

Footballguys view: The Cardinals have no need to rush Stanton back. They'll ease him into action with a plan to have him near full strength at the start of training camp.

  Cardinals | Jaron Brown continuing to recover    Fri Apr 17, 10:17 PM

Arizona Cardinals WR Jaron Brown (shoulder) has been rehabbing his injured shoulder and said he hopes to be back up to speed for OTAs.

Footballguys view: Brown caught 22 passes for 229 yards and two touchdowns last year for the Cardinals. When healthy, he'll continue to serve as a reserve receiver behind Larry Fitzgerald, Michael Floyd and John Brown.

  Cardinals | Gabe Holmes visits    Fri Apr 17, 03:16 AM

Purdue TE Gabe Holmes visited the Arizona Cardinals on Thursday, April 16.

Footballguys view: Holmes is an interesting sleeper to keep an eye on in this poor class. A former basketball player, Holmes has the size/speed combination that will make teams drool. He has decent hands and is a good route-runner. Lack of experience at the position could keep him a priority free agent. Durability is also a concern after he missed the entire 2013 season due to a dislocated left wrist.

  Cardinals | Brett Hundley to visit    Thu Apr 9, 02:04 PM

UCLA QB Brett Hundley is scheduled to meet with the Arizona Cardinals next week.

Footballguys view: The Cardinals know they only have a little time left with Carson Palmer and it is unlikely they have the answer for the future on their roster right now--sorry Logan Thomas dynasty owners. Hundley has a lot of work to do as a passer and he pulls the ball down too quickly to run. He is more of a project than some think--but the Cardinals would have time to work with him and try to fashion him into a starter.

  Cardinals | Breshad Perriman visiting with Cards    Wed Apr 8, 01:15 PM

Central Florida WR Breshad Perriman is scheduled to meet with the Arizona Cardinals before the 2015 NFL Draft, according to sources.

Footballguys view: At 6'2" 215 pounds, Perriman is more explosive than other receivers his size. He can get off the line of scrimmage quickly and cleanly, and Perriman does a good job maintaining his speed out of the break. He's raw as a route-runner, but his physical skill set make him an intriguing option for teams in the late first or early second round. The Cards are a bit jam-packed at wide receiver with Larry Fitzgerald, Michael Floyd, John Brown and Jaron Brown. Perriman is a downfield threat...something Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians can't get enough of.

  Cardinals | A.Q. Shipley in mixed for center job    Mon Apr 6, 10:34 PM

Arizona Cardinals C A.Q. Shipley was signed during the offseason to compete for the vacant starting center job. He is likely to have to battle OG Ted Larsen for the gig. Free-agent C Lyle Sendlein also could be brought back.

  Cardinals | Ted Larsen might be candidate for C    Mon Apr 6, 10:33 PM

Arizona Cardinals OG Ted Larsen might be a candidate for the starting center job after he did a solid job subbing for the injured C Lyle Sendlein during the preseason in 2014.

  Cardinals | Jonathan Cooper unlikely to play C    Mon Apr 6, 10:33 PM

Arizona Cardinals OG Jonathan Cooper is not likely to be candidate for the center position, according to beat writer Darren Urban. He is expected to battle for the starting right guard spot, shifting over from left guard after the signing of OG Mike Iupati.

  Cardinals | Door open for Lyle Sendlein    Mon Apr 6, 10:32 PM

The Arizona Cardinals released C Lyle Sendlein this offseason, but the door is open for a reunion if he was interested in returning. However, he is expected to explore other options for now.

  Cardinals | Run game catered to Andre Ellington?    Sat Apr 4, 09:47 PM

Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington's injuries last season forced the running game to be adjusted to the strengths of several different players, and head coach Bruce Arians believes stability at the position will improve the Arizona's rushing results.

Footballguys view: Ellington is a fine player, and he did a good job of playing through injury all last season. With a complementary back, Ellington should be able to stay healthier this year. Ellington is a big-play back with explosive playmaking ability.

  Cardinals | John Crockett to work out for Arizona    Thu Apr 2, 08:44 AM

North Dakota State RB John Crockett will work out for the Arizona Cardinals, according to sources.

Footballguys view: The Cardinals are looking to upgrade their ground game, and Crockett could be an option for them in the 2015 NFL draft. Crocket has good patience and vision as a runner, but he is high cut and might not be able to get more than what's blocked for him at the pro level.

  Cardinals | Chandler Harnish signs    Tue Mar 31, 03:41 PM

Free-agent QB Chandler Harnish (Vikings) signed an undisclosed deal with the Arizona Cardinals Tuesday, March 31.

Footballguys view: Carson Palmer is still on the mend, so the team needed to add another arm to go along with Drew Stanton and Logan Thomas.

  Cardinals | Andre Ellington's role won't be reduced    Fri Mar 27, 07:42 PM

Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington, who averaged 20.6 touches per game in 2014 before being injured, won't have his role reduced in 2015, according to head coach Bruce Arians. Ellington's role in the passing game may increase, too. Ellington was often limited in practices during the week last year because of his foot injury.

Footballguys view: His role will depend on who they add at the running back position in the draft. The Cardinals may even be in line to trade for Adrian Peterson (Vikings) if he's on the trade block.

  Cardinals | Big season for Larry Fitzgerald?    Thu Mar 26, 10:11 PM

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald and QB Carson Palmer were finally on the same page last season, according to head coach Bruce Arians.

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners take note here. Fitzgerald could post decent fantasy numbers so long as Palmer stays upright. The Cardinals season fell apart last year after Palmer went down. They hope to avoid the same fate this season.

  Cardinals | Lyle Sendlein wanted back    Thu Mar 26, 07:53 AM

Free-agent C Lyle Sendlein (Cardinals) is wanted back on the team by the Arizona Cardinals. The team would likely offer a contract with a reduced cap number.

Footballguys view: Sendlein will mostly be a backup as AQ Shipley played very well for the Colts in a handful of games last season as a center, as well as a few as a guard. Consider Sendlein as a cheap backup at best.

  Cardinals | Sign Ifeanyi Momah    Wed Mar 25, 03:05 PM

Free-agent TE Ifeanyi Momah (Lions) signed a one-year contract with the Arizona Cardinals Wednesday, March 25. Financial terms were undisclosed.

Footballguys view: This is the second player the Cardinals have signed from the veteran combine. Momah will likely contribute on special teams if he makes the final roster.

  Cardinals | Jonathan Cooper moving to RG    Mon Mar 23, 11:54 PM

Arizona Cardinals OG Jonathan Cooper will move to right guard following the addition of OG Mike Iupati in free agency. 'It's not a reflection on Coop. I'm as high on Coop as ever,' general manager Steve Keim said Monday, March 23.

  Cardinals | Nathan Slaughter agrees    Mon Mar 23, 01:46 PM

Free-agent WR Nathan Slaughter (Jaguars) agreed to terms on an undisclosed deal with the Arizona Cardinals Monday, March 23.

Footballguys view: Slaughter spent time with both the Texans and the Jaguars last year as an undrafted rookie out of West Texas A&M. He can contribute as a slot receiver or return man for the Cardinals if he makes the final roster.

  Cardinals | Arizona willing to trade for Peterson?    Fri Mar 20, 02:22 PM

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson remains unhappy with the Vikings. The Arizona Cardinals are reportedly willing to offer a high draft pick in return for Peterson, if he becomes available.

Footballguys view: The Cardinals are in a Super Bowl window, and they want to upgrade their rushing attack. Adding Peterson would swing the power balance in the NFC. We love Andre Ellington, but he's not built to be a featured back. If Arizona adds Peterson they'll be able to run the ball with authority while playing suffocating defense. So long as Carson Palmer stays healthy, Arizona could make a deep playoff run.

  Cardinals | ARI meets with Melvin Gordon    Tue Mar 17, 07:02 AM

Wisconsin RB Melvin Gordon met with the Arizona Cardinals representatives on Monday, March 16.

Footballguys view: Gordon is likely to be a first-round pick in the 2015 NFL draft. The Cardinals want to find help for Andre Ellington in the backfield, and Gordon would do just that. A workhorse in college at Wisconsin, Gordon has a great blend of size and speed. He makes one cut and can explode into the second level of the defense. Gordon is not a power back, but his speed makes him a big-play threat every time he touches the ball.

  Cardinals | ARI saying no to Adrian Peterson?    Tue Mar 17, 02:07 AM

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson may not be going to the Arizona Cardinals. A reliable source close to the team has said the Cardinals wouldn't add Peterson with three years and $45 million left on his contract.

Footballguys view: The Cardinals are looking for upgrades to the running back position, and Peterson would certainly help--but for a huge price. The Cowboys could be the team that's most interested in acquiring Peterson at this time.

  Cardinals | Help coming for Andre Ellington?    Mon Mar 16, 09:15 PM

Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington dealt with several injuries last season, and general manager Steve Keim said that the Cardinals 'definitely need to shore up' the running back position.

Footballguys view: We love Andre Ellington, but the truth is the guy is not built to carry a full workload in the NFL. It's wise for the Cardinals to be looking for additional help at the position. Depending on the quality level of the help, Ellington's fantasy value could be heavily impacted or just slightly altered. From the backs they're looking at, it seems like Arizona wants to find a workhorse and make Ellington a change-of-pace back. That would dramatically alter his fantasy value -- stay tuned.

  Cardinals | Will host Nate Irving this week    Wed Mar 11, 01:05 AM

Free-agent LB Nate Irving (Broncos) is expected to visit the Arizona Cardinals sometime this week.

Footballguys view: The Cardinals already signed Sean Weatherspoon. Adding another linebacker coming off of injury might be necessary because the Cardinals cupboard is bare after having Daryl Washington and Karlos Dansby terrorizing opponents just a few short years ago.

  Cardinals | Mike Iupati expected to sign    Mon Mar 9, 06:48 PM

San Francisco 49ers impending free-agent OG Mike Iupati has told people that he plans to sign with the Arizona Cardinals, according to sources.

Footballguys view: The Cardinals are trying to upgrade their ground game this offseason. Adding Iupati is a big move in the right direction. He's dominant as a run-blocker, but his pass-protection skills do need work. We'll see if they can add a running back to the mix this offseason in the draft or free agency.

Atlanta Falcons impending free-agent LB Sean Weatherspoon has agreed to a one-year deal with the Arizona Cardinals Monday, March 9. The deal is worth just under $4 million.

Footballguys view: If healthy, Weatherspoon will be able to contribute on the Cardinals defense. He missed all of last year with an Achilles' injury after missing several games in 2013 with various injuries. Weatherspoon needs a fresh start.

Free-agent LB Trent Cole (Eagles) has some interest from the Arizona Cardinals.

The Arizona Cardinals are one of several teams with interest in free-agent RB C.J. Spiller (Bills), multiple league sources said Friday, March 6.

Footballguys view: That's a bit of an odd fit. Spiller has a skill set similar to that of current Cardinals starter Andre Ellington.

  Cardinals | Carson Palmer says he'll be ready    Thu Mar 5, 05:05 PM

Updating a previous report, Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer (knee) said he has been running for two or three weeks and throwing five times a week. He is 'pretty close' to being able to participate in a normal workout, and he said he moved past his post-surgery 'funk' when he was able to sweat during workouts. 'I'm going to be ready to rock 'n' roll by the season,' Palmer said. 'Definitely going to be ready by that, definitely going to be ready for camp. And shooting to be getting reps in our mandatory (minicamp) and hopefully some of our OTA practices.'

Footballguys view: As we have said before, it is vital for Palmer to be ready to go for this team at the start of the season - we've seen what it looks like without him and it is unpleasant.

  Cardinals | Carson Palmer reworks deal    Thu Mar 5, 03:57 PM

Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer said he agreed to restructure his contract this offseason in order to create some salary cap space for the team.

Footballguys view: They need him to do that so they can finish building around him. They had a solid defense, but the offense was a bit of a mess. Of course, some of that was because of Palmer's injury and they will lose some defensive players to free agency if they lack cap room. So this was an important move for Palmer and the Cardinals.

  Cardinals | Carson Palmer may be ready for camp    Thu Mar 5, 03:56 PM

Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer (knee) said he is ahead of schedule in his rehab from a torn anterior cruciate ligament and expects to be ready for training camp.

Footballguys view: If you're playing 'what if' you have to wonder 'what if Arizona had a quarterback worth a nickel last season' and whether they would have given Carolina more of a run in the playoffs. That said, they desperately need him healthy for this season as it is clear they have no real backup plan there. Long term though, you have to wonder last season made them think hard about the future.

  Cardinals | Arizona an option for DeMarco Murray    Mon Mar 2, 08:22 PM

Dallas Cowboys impending free-agent RB DeMarco Murray could be targeted by the Arizona Cardinals in free agency this offseason. The Cardinals learned the hard way last year that RB Andre Ellington isn't the workhorse back they were hoping he'd be.

Footballguys view: Ellington wasn't healthy at all last season, but he toughed it out. The Cardinals would jump at the chance to add a superstar like Murray. His running style would take a lot of pressure off Carson Palmer and the passing game.

  Cardinals | Larry Fitzgerald contract update    Fri Feb 27, 04:50 PM

Updating a previous report, Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald is scheduled to count 10.85 million against the salary cap in 2015 and $15.85 million in 2016. His contract will void after two seasons, and the Cardinals will have $4.85 million of dead money on their salary cap in 2017 and 2018.

Footballguys view: It's a good deal for the Cardinals, and Fitzgerald gets a good amount in a renegotiated deal. He's unlikely to play for Arizona in 2017 or 2018 with $16 million due each season. Fitzgerald is locked in with the Cardinals for the next two years.

Arizona Cardinals DT Darnell Dockett was released Friday, Feb. 27. The Cardinals would like to re-sign Dockett if he is not able to find a better offer from another team.

  Cardinals | Adrian Peterson to land in Arizona?    Fri Feb 27, 02:35 PM

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson could be a trade option for the Arizona Cardinals with QB Carson Palmer and WR Larry Fitzgerald nearing the end of their careers in the desert. The Cardinals are built to win now, and The Arizona Republic's Kent Somers said he wouldn't be surprised if general manager Steve Keim and head coach Bruce Arians elect to pursue Peterson.

Footballguys view: It would be an interesting fit, but it sounds like a pipe dream at this moment. If Peterson is added to Arizona's roster, it would crush the fantasy value of Andre Ellington. The Cardinals could use Ellington as a feature back again this year. If healthy, he has the ability to put up good numbers--he just needs a good complementary back behind him.
