GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Early in Cardinals coach Bruce Arians' daily press briefing Sunday, he was asked when left guard and No. 7 overall draft pick Jonathan Cooper would start falling behind amid ongoing contract negotiations. "Last week," Arians replied. It was only minutes later that Arians was "extremely pleased and happy" to announce that Cooper and the Cardinals had agreed to terms on a four-year contract. "I just got word that Jonathan Cooper is done and is on his way," Arians said after being handed a note from the team's head of media relations. "He still missed time, but I'm a lot happier now.

Palmer all business with Cardinals

Carson Palmer is grateful that the Arizona Cardinals and his new teammates have embraced him following the quarterback's offseason arrival. But making friends isn't atop Palmer's priority list.
