John Abraham yet to pass concussion protocol


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/16/2014) Cardinals linebacker John Abraham didn't pass the concussion protocol Tuesday, FOXSports.com reports. Abraham will attempt to be cleared Wednesday as he looks to return from his Week 1 injury.

John Abraham set to rejoin Cardinals


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/15/2014) Cardinals coach Bruce Arians told reporters Monday linebacker John Abraham, who left the team after suffering a concussion Week 1 against the Chargers, will return to the team this week. Arians said Abraham will be back at the team's complex Tuesday and working toward getting cleared from his recent concussion.

Cardinals force four turnovers in Week 2 win


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) The Cardinals ended up allowing 341 yards (81 rushing) Week 2 against the Giants, but Arizona forced four turnovers, which was key in a 25-14 win. 

Arizona forced two interceptions and two fumbles Sunday. They also sacked Giants quarterback Eli Manning two times. 

The special teams unit also got involved in the win, as returner Ted Ginn brought back a punt 71 yards for a touchdown with 10:10 remaining, giving Arizona the go-ahead score.

The Cardinals are back in action Week 3 vs. San Francisco.


Cardinals list Week 2 inactives


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) Cardinals linebacker Alex Okafor (thigh), defensive tackle Frostee Rucker (calf), linebacker Glenn Carson, linebacker Marcus Bernard, punter Dave Zastudil (groin) and tight end Darren Fells were among the inactives Week 2 at N.Y. Giants

Cardinals DST holds Chargers under 300 yards


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/9/2014) The Cardinals DST did a nice job limiting the Chargers offensively in Monday's 18-17 win, but the unit came up with very few big plays. Arizona held San Diego to 290 total yards and just 2.2 yards per carry.

Cornerback Jerraud Powers intercepted Philip Rivers on a crossing route, his eighth career interception. Arizona recorded no sacks and was unable to recover a Rivers fumble.

The Cardinals DST has a chance to create more turnovers Week 2 when it visits the Giants.


Cardinals DST carries more risk than last year


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/3/2014) The Cardinals DST finished sixth in Fantasy points last season while ranking first against the run. This is not that defense.

Arizona lost defensive tackle Darnell Dockett (torn ACL) and linebackers Karlos Dansby (free agency) and Daryl Washington (suspension), among others. That trio accounted for 14 sacks, six interceptions, two touchdowns and a fumble recovery. Linebacker John Abraham (11.5 sacks) reported late to camp following a DUI arrest and at age 36 is unlikely to repeat his 2013 production.

The Cardinals are counting on 34-year-old Larry Foote and unproven Kevin Minter at linebacker. Safety Tyrann Mathieu (knee) is not 100 percent yet. Arizona did add corner Antonio Cromartie to team with superstar Patrick Peterson.

Monday night, Arizona hosts an efficient Chargers' team that gave up the eighth-fewest Fantasy points (7.3 per game) to DSTs last year. Consider the Cardinals DST a low-end starting option at best.


Deone Bucannon settling in at safety for Cardinals


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/2/2014) Cardinals rookie safety Deone Bucannon is ready for the start of the season after missing a good portion of the offseason due to turf toe. The first-round pick led the team with 23 tackles during the preseason and totaled 15 over the final two preseason games.

"He knows his job," head coach Bruce Arians said, per the team's official website. "He plays fearless. He’s more than ready to go. I wanted to get him out of there as soon as I could."

Bucannon said he's getting more comfortable on defense with the more reps he receives.

"Each time I come to the sideline they just tell me little things to watch out for to get more comfortable," Bucannon said. "It really helps when I’m out there. Ty (Mathieu) is right next to me. Every time I come off the field, he asks what I’m seeing. It’s little things for me to get better, and that’s what’s really been helping me.

"I’m understanding the defense better, and what the coaches want out of me, what they expect out of me. That’s allowed me to go out there and play faster for the team."


Tyrann Mathieu won't play final exhibition game


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/28/2014) Cardinals safety Tyrann Mathieu will not play Thursday night against San Diego, the team's final preseason game, per the team's official website. Mathieu is working his way back from two torn knee ligaments which he suffered in December. His status remains uncertain for Week 1 against the Chargers.

Coach: John Abraham will remain a starter


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/14/2014) Just a day after reporting to training camp, Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians told the Arizona Republic that linebacker John Abraham will remain a starter. Abraham won't play in the team's second preseason or work in pads until next week.

"We'll see what kind of condition he is [in] and get him physically ready," Arians said. "Yeah, he's going to be our starting 'Will' linebacker. There's no doubt about that. He's never been out of those plans."

Desmond Bishop signs with Cardinals


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/14/2014) The Cardinals announced Thursday they signed linebacker Desmond Bishop to a one-year contract. Bishop, who played for Green Bay from 2007-12, spent last season with the Vikings, recording five tackles (four solo) in four games.

John Abraham reports to training camp


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/14/2014) Cardinals linebacker John Abraham reported to training camp Thursday, a source told NFL.com. He has been absent for almost three weeks for undisclosed reasons.

Abraham was arrested for DUI in late June after police found him passed out behind the wheel of his car in the center of a lane on a suburban Atlanta road. It was Abraham's third alcohol-related arrest.


Antonio Cromartie records INT in first preseason game


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/10/2014) Cardinals cornerback Antonio Cromartie made an impact in his first preseason game against the Texans on Saturday. Cromartie picked off Houston quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick with 2:34 remaining in the first quarter. He finished the game with an interception and a pass defended.

Tyrann Mathieu expects to practice in 2-3 weeks


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/7/2014) Cardinals safety Tyrann Mathieu provided an update Wednesday on the status of his recovery from a knee injury.

"I expect to be at practice the next two to three weeks," Mathieu said, per the Cardinals' official website. "Hopefully we can stick to that timetable."

Although, Mathieu doesn't have a timetable for his return to game action.

"Our head coach, is he comfortable with me being out there?" Mathieu said. "Am I 100 percent, and am I going to better our defense? I don’t want to go out there if I’m not the guy I was last year."


Patrick Peterson lands a mammoth extension


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/30/2014) The Cardinals announced that they've signed cornerback Patrick Peterson to a five-year extension worth $70 million that includes just over $48 million in guarantees. Peterson announced the deal himself on Twitter. He's now the highest-paid cornerback in the NFL. 

Through three seasons, Peterson has 161 total tackles, 12 interceptions, 42 passes defensed and a pair of fumble recoveries. He also has four punt returns for a touchdown, all coming in his 2011 rookie year.

Most impressive of all, Peterson has not missed a game in his short career. 


Kevin Minter leading the Cardinals defense


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/3/2014) After playing only one snap as a rookie in 2013, Cardinals linebacker Kevin Minter not only lined up with the first-team defense at OTAs but made all the defensive calls according to 910 AM FOX Sports in Phoenix. Minter is expected to fill the middle of the defense for Arizona this season. 

Yeremiah Bell expected to retire


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/7/2014) The Cardinals offered safety Yeremiah Bell a one-year contract, but the 36-year-old likely will retire, reports Fox Sports 910. Bell started every game last season, recording 76 tackles, 10 pass breakups, two interceptions and a sack.

Bell posted four seasons with at least 100 tackles in his 10-year career.


Cardinals will exercise option on Patrick Peterson


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(3/27/2014) The Cardinals plan to exercise a fifth-year option for defensive back Patrick Peterson this summer according to the Arizona Republic Wednesday, a move which should come as little surprise.

Peterson has made the Pro Bowl in each of his three seasons, and the Cardinals are already planning to discuss a long-term extension for the three-time Pro Bowler. Under the new collective bargaining agreement, Peterson would make the average of the 10 highest paid corners in the league in his fifth season, assuming he does not sign a long-term extension.

Peterson is coming off a three-interception, 42-tackle season in 2013. 


Cardinals sign Antonio Cromartie


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/20/2014) The Cardinals have signed cornerback Antonio Cromartie to a one-year deal, reports ESPN.

Cromartie spent the past four seasons with the Jets. In Arizona, he's expected to start opposite Patrick Peterson.


Marcus Bernard returning to Arizona


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(3/12/2014) Though the Cardinals allowed him to become an unrestricted free agent, the team ended up bringing linebacker Marcus Bernard back in the end. The team's official website reports Bernard has been re-signed on a one-year deal, the financial terms of which are not yet known. 

Bernard finished the 2013 season with 17 tackles and 2.5 sacks in 12 games. 


Cardinals hope to bring back Karlos Dansby


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/6/2014) The Cardinals would like to bring back free agent linebacker Karlos Dansby, reports the Arizona Republic.

Last year, Dansby played under a one-year, $2.25 million contract. He will be 33 in November, but the report says the "Cardinals can't afford to lose" him.

The story suggests a two-year deal worth $10 million to $12 million makes sense for both parties with $6 million guaranteed.


Cardinals cut Jasper Brinkley


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/28/2014) The Cardinals made a roster move Friday by releasing linebacker Jasper Brinkley, reports the official team website.

Brinkley was signed as a free agent last offseason to a two-year deal. Cutting Brinkley saves the Cardinals $2 million in salary cap space, leaving only $200,000 in dead money.

Brinkley played in 15 games last season, with three starts. He had 30 tackles and another five on special teams.


Patrick Peterson discussing extension with Cardinals


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/20/2014) Cornerback Patrick Peterson, who's entering the final year of his rookie deal, is discussing an extension with the Cardinals, reports FoxSports.com. “We have had a lot of good conversations between [agent] Joel [Segal] and myself,” general manager Steve Keim said. “I expect them to be ongoing."

Keim would not say if the team would make Peterson the league's highest-paid defensive player. "Well, that's a good question," he told the website. "We'll have to see. I’ll tell you this, we want to keep him around here for a long time.”


Tyrann Mathieu could miss start of 2014 season


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/17/2014) Cardinals starting free safety Tyrann Mathieu could miss training camp and the beginning of the 2014 regular season as he recovers from knee surgery, the team has reported. His recovery time has been estimated as 6-9 months.

Mathieu sustained ACL and LCL tears in the Week 14 game against St. Louis and was placed on IR two days later.


JoJo Dickson signed by Arizona


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/16/2014) The Cardinals have signed linebacker JoJo Dickson to a reserve-future deal. Dickson spent time on the Arizona roster this season and with the Jets in 2012, but has yet to record any statistics.

Re-signing Karlos Dansby is Cardinals' priority


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/1/2014) The Cardinals have 16 unrestricted free agents, half of whom are starters. Re-signing linebacker Karlos Dansby is the priority, reports the Arizona Republic.

Dansby, 32, had a monster year, with 122 tackles, 19 passes defended, 6.5 sacks, four interceptions, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery. He returned two interceptions for touchdowns.
