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. Rookie Chandler Catonzaro will assume the job unless something unforseen happens in the next two weeks (i.e. injury). Cutting Feely saves the...

GAMEDAY: Arizona Cardinals at Minnesota Vikings What to Watch For

The Cardinals and its fans are still in a haze of tempered excitement and suppressed giddiness after the Cardinals complete and utter 32-0 domination of the Texans in their first preseason game. Starting the preseason off with a performance like that can only be viewed as a good thing as long as head coach Bruce Arians keeps his Redbirds hungry and unsatisfied with their progress...

Twitter Tuesday: Tyrann Mathieu wants to see someone fight

The Darnell Dockett- Bradley Sowell scrum in practice turned a light bulb on in the head of safety Tyrann Mathieu and it was a little wicked idea he had with Darren Urban of the team’s official website.

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...

Darnell Dockett fights Bradley Sowell in practice

It took a couple weeks but the Arizona Cardinals are battling a new tough foe in the NFC West–themselves. Defensive lineman Darnell Dockett got into a scrum with offensive tackle Bradley Sowell at practice, according to Curtis Crabtree of Pro Football Talk. It didn’t amount to much and both players were separated quickly. Head coach Bruce Arians has no tolerance for fighting...

Cardinals camp preview: Top position battles

While media and some fans are still getting over the fact that the Cardinals aren't holding training camp in the cooler climes of Flagstaff, Cardinals players are resting comfortably in hotel beds instead of dorms, enabling them to focus on more important matters. Training camp is a proving ground for bottom-of-the-roster players and some starters. While most starting jobs are...

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...

Bobby Massie is giving him a challenge thus far in OTAs but now a third name has emerged in Nate Potter. Potter was drafted out of Boise State and was spotted taking reps with the first team on the final day of OTAs, according to Kyle Odegard of the team’s official website. This...

Arizona Cardinals: “Outstanding” OTA’s– and a few other Takeaways

(photo courtesy of ktar.com)     The organized team activities, though optional, still serve its purpose.  It is strictly voluntary work; but almost all players will show up none-the-less. There are a few veterans missing here and there, but regardless, the OTA sessions act as filler more or less, just for the team to see what it’s working with. “It’s mostly assignments...

Is Massie ready to claim right tackle job?

TEMPE, Ariz. -- Bobby Massie made an assumption that a lot of college stars make when he they arrive in the NFL. "I was going to go out and do the same thing I did on Saturday on Sunday," said Massie, the Cardinals' fourth-round draft pick out of Mississippi in 2012. "It ain't worked out like that, obviously." Massie started all 16 games at right tackle...

Look for Arizona Cardinals to fill right tackle job from within

There were lots of good questions during my video chat on Thursday. (Warning: it's about 20 minutes long.) Many of the questions were about the Cardinals' plan for the draft next month. I couldn't answer with anything but guesses, and one was that they wouldn't take an offensive linemen, specifically a right tackle, in the first round. Via e-mail, reader/viewer...

Arizona Cardinals sign OT Jared Veldheer

There might not have been a team needier for offensive tackles than the Cardinals, not just because of their lack of talent at the position last year, but because of their lack of talent at the position for many years. It’s been seemingly forever since they had competent offensive tackle play. Bradley Sowell was horrific this season at left tackle, after taking over for Levi Brown...

Cardinals’ search shows left tackles are like gold in today’s NFL

It’s no secret the Cardinals will devote considerable resources this off-season to acquire a new left tackle. To me, it became obvious last Sept. 26, talking to General Manager Steve Keim, as the Cardinals practiced in Sarasota, Fla. It was spitting rain. Part of the field already was under water from days of storms. But Keim could have stood there for an hour, answering questions...

Every team evaluates the talent they have in an attempt to make them the talent they had, in exchange for roster spots to be filled by rookies, free agents, or to give players you already have the opportunity to help the team.

The Cardinals went above and beyond their expectations in the 2013 season, finishing with a 10-6 record and just barely missing out on the playoffs.

He allowed seven sacks up to that point and graded out at the bottom of the list of the league’s left tackles according to Pro Football Focus...
