  Cardinals | Kyler Murray in rare company    Sat Jan 25, 09:18 PM

Arizona Cardinals QB Kyler Murray finished the 2019 season with 3,722 passing yards, 544 rushing yards, 24 total touchdowns and 12 interceptions, joining Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton as the only rookie quarterbacks in NFL history to pass for at least 3,500 yards and rush for at least 500 yards.

Footballguys view: Murray is off to a great start in the NFL...now the Cardinals just need to build a better team around him. It's clear the rookie was in command of his offense and that comfort level in the pros should continue this year. Murray finished as the No.9 fantasy quarterback in standard scoring leagues as a rookie. He's a clear QB1 for Fantasy GMs and could finish 2020 as a top-10 fantasy quarterback once again.

  Cardinals | Kyler Murray hasn't closed door to baseball    Sat Jan 18, 07:04 AM

Arizona Cardinals QB Kyler Murray hasn't necessarily given up on playing the sport of baseball. In an interview with The Arizona Republic's Bob McManaman, Murray said that he thinks that he would be capable of playing in the NFL and MLB in the same calendar year. 'I think I could. ... Athletically, I think yeah, I could do it. I've been playing both my whole life. I would love to add that to the resume.'

Footballguys view: That's an...interesting...response from Murray who was a top-10 pick for the Oakland A's. Murray is not prohibited from playing baseball by the Cardinals but doing so would void future guarantees in his contract.

  Cardinals | Larry Fitzgerald contract breakdown    Thu Jan 16, 12:52 PM

Updating previous reports, Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald's one-year contract for 2020 will include a base salary of $11 million and will have $500,000 in roster bonuses and $250,000 in incentives.

Footballguys view: We're so happy that Fitzgerald is going to keep playing in 2020. He has to like what Kliff Kingsbury is bringing to the table and will continue to serve as a veteran leader.

  Cardinals | Larry Fitzgerald coming back    Wed Jan 15, 09:53 AM

Arizona Cardinals impending free-agent WR Larry Fitzgerald re-signed with the Cardinals on a one-year deal Wednesday, Jan. 15. Financial terms weren't disclosed.

Footballguys view: We're happy to see Fitzgerald continue his pro career for a 17th season. Fitzgerald must like what is happening under Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury and he provides the team with valuable leadership and veteran depth at the position. He played 903 snaps for the Cardinals in 2019 but that number might go down as he ages and younger Cardinals WRs elevate their game.

  Cardinals | David Johnson contract outlook    Mon Jan 13, 09:36 PM

Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson is due to count $14.156 million against the 2020 salary cap. Moving on from him would cost the Cardinals $16.2 million in dead money.

Footballguys view: The Cardinals have an interesting decision coming up with Johnson. Should the Cardinals wait until 2021 to part ways with Johnson, the dead money will be only $3 million with a savings of $9 million. Arizona would have to eat $6 million of remaining prorated signing bonus money if Johnson is traded.

Arizona Cardinals QB Kyler Murray (hamstring) is expected to play in the Week 17 game as long as he does not suffer a setback during pregame warmups, according to sources.

Footballguys view: Kyler Murray is dealing with a hamstring injury that could keep him out ...or limit him... in the season finale. Brett Hundley would be the starter if Murray is out, and Anderson was brought up as a potential backup to Hundley in Week 17.

  Cardinals | GM aims to re-sign Kenyan Drake    Fri Dec 20, 12:45 PM

Arizona Cardinals RB Kenyan Drake is scheduled to be an unrestricted free agent this offseason, but Cardinals general manager Steve Keim said Friday that the team is hoping to retain the running back they traded for earlier this season. 'As far as waiting until after the season (to re-sign Drake), that's not necessarily the thing either. I would certainly love to have Kenyan Drake back,' Keim said Friday in an Arizona radio interview. 'I think he fits in this offense, and he really has given us a spark in many ways.'

Footballguys view: Drake will probably find a lukewarm market for longterm running back contracts. He has had a much better experience under Kliff Kingsbury than he had under Adam Gase, and perhaps that could create a "hometown discount" for Arizona. The status of David Johnson, who has a $10.2 million dollar guaranteed salary coming to him from the Cardinals next year, will also play into this decision.

  Cardinals | Arizona rookie WRs won't see increased snaps    Fri Dec 20, 12:35 AM

Arizona Cardinals WRs Andy Isabella and KeeSean Johnson will not increased usage over the season's final two weeks, according to AZCardinals.com's Darren Urban.

Footballguys view: The Cardinals rookie wide receiver class has been a bust this year. We shouldn't give up on them in dynasty leagues, but we also shouldn't be surprised when the team seeks more talent at the position in the draft and free agency.
