  Cardinals | Arizona signs four players    Thu Apr 15, 04:52 PM

Free-agent WR Andre Baccellia (Patriots), DE Ryan Bee (Washington), RB Tavien Feaster (Lions) and LB Jamell Garcia-Williams (49ers) signed with the Arizona Cardinals Thursday, April 15. Terms of the contracts were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Feaster is a big-bodied back who bounced around to three different teams in 2020 after going undrafted out of South Carolina (Clemson transfer). He'll try to work into the mix behind Chase Edmonds and newly-signed James Conner and is a long-shot to make the final roster. If he impresses in the desert, then perhaps a spot on the practice squad will be where he lands.

  Cardinals | Arizona adds Darece Roberson    Thu Apr 15, 01:58 PM

Free agent WR Darece Roberson on Thursday, April 15, signed a one-year contract with the Arizona Cardinals. Roberson went undrafted and unsigned in 2020 out of Wayne State.

Footballguys view: Roberson is a smaller but speedy receiver. He scored 24 receiving touchdowns during his time at Wayne State and added a couple of return touchdowns. Roberson will compete for a spot on the Cardinals depth chart and brings special teams value.

  Cardinals | James Conner lands with Cards    Tue Apr 13, 11:40 AM

Free-agent RB James Conner (Steelers) agreed to a one-year deal with the Arizona Cardinals Tuesday, April 13. Financial terms weren't disclosed.

Footballguys view: Conner will now work into the mix with Chase Edmonds. When healthy, Conner can be a big-bodied back to do some work inside the tackle. Edmonds should still be the primary back and catch more passes with Conner backing him up and shouldering some of the load.

  Cardinals | Arizona to meet with James Conner    Mon Apr 12, 01:22 PM

Free-agent RB James Conner (Steelers) is scheduled to meet with the Arizona Cardinals Monday, April 12.

Footballguys view: Conner had turf toe surgery this offseason but he should be fully ready to go in June. The Cardinals are doing their due diligence and checking in with the veteran. Perhaps they could sign him later in the year.

  Cardinals | DeAndre Hopkins in a league of his own    Thu Apr 1, 10:06 PM

Arizona Cardinals WR DeAndre Hopkins is the only player in the NFL with at least 100 receptions in each of the last three seasons.

Footballguys view: Just project him for another 100 catches in 2021. Hopkins is a special player and one of the most dangerous receivers in the league. He might have made the catch of the year in 2020 and should have more circus grabs in store for us all this year.

  Cardinals | GM believes A.J. Green can rebound    Tue Mar 23, 11:03 PM

Arizona Cardinals WR A.J. Green 'is a guy ... that could play the 'Z' position for us, has great character ... and I still think he has some stuff left in the tank,' general manager Steve Keim said Tuesday, March 23.

Footballguys view: Green needs to stay healthy and show he's still got something left in the tank. He'll get that opportunity with his new team, and Fantasy GMs need to keep an eye on the veteran in case he does come through. By that we mean he could pay off as a WR3 at best in 2021.

  Cardinals | GM comfortable with Chase Edmonds    Mon Mar 22, 07:11 PM

Arizona Cardinals RB Chase Edmonds may receive some competition this offseason as general manager Steve Keim suggested Monday, March 22, that he will monitor the running back position. However, Keim is of the belief that Edmonds is an 'excellent' player.

Footballguys view: That makes the GM and the head coach comfortable with Edmonds...and for good reason. He could certainly be the lead back and work as a three-down player in the Cardinals offense. Edmonds has RB1 upside so long as the Cardinals don't add a RB in the draft who can take his spot.

  Cardinals | GM has had contact with Larry Fitzgerald    Mon Mar 22, 01:43 PM

Free-agent WR Larry Fitzgerald (Cardinals) has been in contact with Arizona Cardinals general manager Steve Keim, but Keim said the two have not discussed his playing future.

Footballguys view: With the signing of veteran A.J. Green it seemed like the Cardinals might be moving on from Fitzgerald. Perhaps that's not the case as Fitzgerald has not yet decided whether or not he's going to play in 2021.

  Cardinals | Kenyan Drake headed for free agency    Tue Mar 9, 06:06 PM

Arizona Cardinals RB Kenyan Drake did not receive the franchise tag designation Tuesday, March 9, and is set to become a free agent.

Footballguys view: Chase Edmonds is the lead back for the Cardinals right now. They'll likely look to the draft to add talent to the running back room. Drake flourished with the Cardinals after floundering with the Dolphins. He'll have a decent market for his services.

  Cardinals | Confidence in Chase Edmonds    Fri Mar 5, 10:45 AM

Arizona Cardinals RB Chase Edmonds gives the team confidence in his abilities as a starting running back if they don't re-sign RB Kenyan Drake.

Footballguys view: The Cardinals may not bring Drake back as he's set to hit the open market. Edmonds can do work as a runner and receiver out of the backfield. The team should be able to use Edmonds as the starter and then grab a running back at some point in the draft.

  Cardinals | Larry Fitzgerald's status a mystery    Thu Mar 4, 01:58 PM

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald could return for an 18th season with the team, but head coach Kliff Kingsbury said Thursday, March 4, that the wide receiver's status remains a mystery. 'I don't know anything,' Kingsbury said in a news conference, adding it's been honor to work with Fitzgerald and hopes he plays five more years.

Footballguys view: Fitzgerald has been dancing around retiring for some time now. If he comes back for another season it would not be a surprise. With the addition of J.J. Watt, Fitzgerald might figure he has one more year left in him.

Footballguys view: Drake exploded onto the scene when he got a fresh start in Arizona. Who knows what will happen in free agency, but any team that signs Drake will have to take what he did with the Cardinals and try to duplicate that.
