Arizona Cardinals Announce First Roster Cuts

The Arizona Cardinals have trimmed their roster to the league-required total of 75 players as they released 13 players earlier today. The most notable cut came in the kicking game where 13-year veteran Jay Feely was given his walking papers.

Playing Defense is Becoming Harder in the NFL With New Enforcements

Defense wins championships and that is true in the NFL. Just ask the Denver Broncos after their high-powered offense was held to eight points in the Super Bowl by the Seattle Seahawks. The 2014 season looks to be more difficult on defenders as the league is pressing for more enforcement on illegal contact and defensive holding. Illegal contact is touching the receiver more than five...

Power Rankings: Arizona Cardinals spot in Week 1 preseason edition is debatable

Every team has played a game. Yes, it was an exhibition. And yes, a lot of star players didn’t even bother to suit up. But it was a game, against a real opponent and with a final score; so it meant something. Preseason games can be tricky. Some teams take them seriously, while others are simply trying to get through their four required exhibitions without suffering any serious...

Right tackle still a huge concern for Arizona Cardinals

The Cardinals drafted seven players in the 2014 NFL draft. Not one of them was an offensive lineman. Most people believed that meant that the Cardinals front office and coaching staff felt confident in the crew they were bringing to camp. Now after OTA’s and the team’s mini camp, things don’t look so settled. Coming in to the offseason the majority of those in the know around...
