Power Rankings: Arizona Cardinals move up in offseason midpoint edition

Not all of the moves have been made, but most of them are in the books. Players have come and gone, as teams tinker with their rosters, looking to fill holes and upgrade in key positions. Some have tried to make a big splash, while others have been more conservative. Some have simply tried to retain their own players, while others have gone about overhauling a big chunk of their...

High Times for Tyrann Mathieu

With the NFL draft just over a month away, I thought this would be a good time to take a look back at the most controversial pick from the Cardinals 2013 draft. Tyrann Mathieu, the “Honey Badger,” was one of the most talented players in college football during his sophomore season for LSU. He was selected as an All-American and was even a finalist for the Heisman Trophy. His...

10 best picks from the 2013 NFL Draft

It’s easy to look at a draft immediately after it ends and declare a “winner” and “loser” because none of those draft picks have ever played a game. Now that those players have a full season under their belts (and with the 2014 draft right around the corner), it is a much better time to look at the outgoing rookie class and try to figure out which were the best picks.

Cardinals' Tyrann Mathieu patient, passionate about journey back from knee injury

The defensive backfield is a position of flux for the Arizona Cardinals. They would be in the market for some help in the defensive backfield given everything that is going on with Patrick Peterson (holdout?), Tyrann Mathieu (recovering from knee surgery) and the pool of impending free agents at the position (Yeremiah Bell, Antoine Cason et al.)

When Tyrann Mathieu tore his ACL and LCL Dec. 8, it was clear he was in for a long rehab process — even the Honey Badger knew that. How long was long, however, was anyone’s guess.
