Arizona Cardinals defensive lineman Darnell Dockett is known for his funny Twitter account, and he had quite a gem around Christmas.
Arizona running back Beanie Wells is using next week's game against San Francisco as an "audition for a job somewhere else."Fantasy Spin:It's pretty clear Wells wants out after another frustrating season for the listless Cardinals. Wells has been a fantasy disappointment this season (234 yards, five TD in eight games) but perhaps playing for a new team will rejuvenate him.
The Arizona Cardinals have placed tight end Rob Housler on injured reserve and promoted wide receiver Kerry Taylor to the active roster.
Housler is the team's third-leading receiver with 45 catches for 417 yards and a touchdown. He injured his shoulder in Sunday's 28-13 loss to the Chicago Bears.
Taylor, who grew up in nearby Chandler, Ariz., and played for Arizona State...
It has been a long and grueling season for Darnell Dockett and the rest of the Arizona Cardinals. For many of the team’s players, Christmas likely served as a welcome distraction from a season in which they have lost 10 out of their last 11 games. Dockett, on the other hand, seemed like he was a bit lonely during the holiday season.
On Christmas night, Dockett took to Twitter to...
The Arizona Cardinals entered the final week of the season with uncertainty at quarterback.
How fitting for a team that's misery on the field has been defined by poor play at that position.
Coach Ken Whisenhunt said Monday he wasn't ready to say whether Brian Hoyer would be the choice, although it seems a pretty good guess considering the problems that Ryan Lindley has...

Around and around the Arizona Cardinals' quarterback carousel turns, and this week it's Brian Hoyer's turn to take a spin as the starter. Coach Ken Whisenhunt said Wednesday that Hoyer will be the Cardinals' fourth starting quarterback this season when they face San Francisco in their regular-season finale on Sunday. Hoyer follows injured Kevin Kolb, John Skelton...
The Arizona Cardinals will give Brian Hoyer his first NFL start less than three weeks after the team claimed him off waivers from Pittsburgh.
TEMPE, Ariz. Patrick Peterson was named to the 2012 NFC Pro Bowl roster on Wednesday, becoming the first Cardinal to earn Pro Bowl nods in each of his first two seasons since Vai Sikahema did it in 1986 and 87. He also joined Hall of Famer Rod Woodson as the only two NFL players ever to earn Pro Bowl selections as a returner and as a defensive player.
"It definitely solidifies...
During his playing days, Joey Porter was known as one of the NFL’s fiercest linebackers, going to the Pro Bowl four times and winning Super Bowl XL with the Steelers in 2006. The last he was heard from was with Arizona in the 2011 season, signing a one-day contract to retire as a Steeler back in July.
However, though it’s not uncommon for NFL players to get themselves in financial...
