Third-year linebacker Daryl Washington, whose importance to the team was recently cited by general manager Rod Graves, isn't the only Arizona player under consideration for a contract extension. The Cardinals have quietly begun extension talks with fourth-year veteran return man and special teams ace LaRod Stephens-Howling, and could make the former seventh-round pick one of the higher paid non-kicking special teams players in the league. Stephens-Howling is signed to a one-year restricted tender at $1.927 million, and the Cardinals would like to lower that cap number with a multi-year deal. Not to mention being able to keep Stephens-Howlings, who has worked hard to make himself a vital part of the roster. --Pittsburgh coaches are excited by the early work of Willie Colon, who is moving from right tackle to left guard on the team's revamped offensive line, in camp. But the team wants to see how Colon, who has essentially missed the past two seasons because of injurie...

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. -- Cardinals players were in a hurry when Friday mornings practice at Northern Arizona University ended. It made sense. This was the teams last workout at NAU before heading to Canton, Ohio, for the Hall of Fame Game on Sunday against the New Orleans Saints.
But if youll allow us to stretch the moment, there was also symbolism in that heavy herds stampede down the...
Back in May one of our ten sports media questions for this upcoming football season was "Will Peter Berg's Mike Leach documentary series become a reality?"
It was certainly something I was hoping to see come to fruition. But with no real updates from Berg's camp or Washington State, I had all but given up on the chance of the show being produced. Unfortunately...
(Eds: With AP Photos.) By BOB BAUM AP Sports Writer The Arizona Cardinals' defense is well aware of its status as the anointed strength of the franchise.
The players have a bit of swagger to them this training camp, a confidence still mixed with the reality that they have done nothing yet, that all the success of the second half of last year means little if it can't be repeated...
Ryan Williams (knee) will miss the preseason opener, although the Cardinals aren't concerned about it. Williams is sure to be ready for Week 1, and is solidified in an important role backing up the fragile Beanie Wells.
Greg Salas is the leading candidate to begin the season as Sam Bradford's top deep threat. However, his value might be determined by new OC Brian Schottenheimer...
The Arizona Cardinals have been dealing with some running back injuries as they get set to play in the Hall Of Fame Game on Aug. 5 on Sunday. Running back Ryan Williams is one of those running backs that is hurt and is officially out of Sunday's preseason game. "I'm not going to play, maybe catch the next one. I'm in no rush to get back on the knee," Williams...
FLAGSTAFF -- The Cardinals want to keep inside linebacker Daryl Washington around for a while. Thats why general manager Rod Graves said Wednesday the team is working toward a contract extension for the third-year player from Texas Christian.
Hes a core player, Graves said. We havent sat down to talk contact, but we anticipate doing that soon. Hes under consideration like several...
The most C-Tates picture that has ever been taken.Actor Channing Tatum has undoubtedly reached A-list status this year, what with all 3 of his films grossing more than $100 million and him hanging out with George Clooney, so he can pretty much do whatever he wants at this point. At least that’s what I assumed was the reasoning for him showing up at Arizona Cardinals practice yesterday...
Minutes before the Ravens were scheduled to begin practice at M&T Bank Stadium on Saturday, the organization announced it had signed Stevie Baggs Jr. to the roster. The 30-year-old linebacker has spent time with the Arizona Cardinals and the Detroit Lions, but has played mostly in the Canadian Football League. Listed at 6-foot-1 and 241 pounds, Baggs is a pass-rushing linebacker...
PULLMAN – Mike Leach in his WSU first fall camp is expected to place major importance on the special teams units. An underwhelming third phase of the Wazzu’s game in recent years, the Cougars appear ready to turn a corner in 2012, both literally and figuratively.
