Cardinals' Tony Jefferson: Records nine tackles Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Jefferson recorded nine solo tackles, including two tackles for loss, in Sunday's loss to the Rams.

Only Jefferson and dollar linebacker Deone Bucannon have logged every defensive snap for the Cardinals this season, but the former has nearly doubled up the latter on the tackle front (39 versus 20) this season. As the team's leading tackler overall -- including a team-leading six TFL -- Jefferson has supplemented his lines with one sack, one forced fumble, and one fumble recovery. His breakout has thus placed him among Eric Weddle and Harrison Smith as the top-rated safeties according to Pro Football Focus.

Cardinals' Tony Jefferson: Forces a fumble in Week 3 loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jefferson forced a fumble and registered nine tackles Sunday against the Bills.

Jefferson now has 30 tackles on the year while collecting at least nine in each contest. After posting just 78 tackles in each of the last two seasons, he looks like he could be ready to take a step forward in his fourth season. However, he'll need to improve on more than numbers in the tackle category, as he has just four sacks and four forced fumbles since the beginning of the 2014 season.

Cardinals' Tony Jefferson: Tallies sack, forced fumble in Week 3
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Jefferson tallied nine tackles (six solo), including one sack, and one forced fumble during Sunday's defeat at Buffalo.

Previously lacking in an absolute IDP monster under head coach Bruce Arians reign, the Cardinals have had just that this season. Ranking first on a talent-laden defense with 30 tackles (24 solo), Jefferson has got in the act elsewhere as well with one sack, one forced fumble, and one fumble recovery, making him the only player in the NFL with more than 18 tackles and one of each of the other stats on his game log. He has yet to take a breather this season, meaning opportunity should continue to abound for the four-year pro.

Cardinals' Tony Jefferson: Notches 11 tackles, fumble recovery Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Jefferson notched 11 tackles (nine solo) and a fumble recovery during Sunday's win over the Buccaneers.

For the second game in a row, Jefferson has attained double-digit tackles and currently ranks third among defensive backs behind Kemal Ishmael and Reshad Jones with 21 total. In a Cardinals defense full of talent, Jefferson has graded as Pro Football Focus' best player on D in both of the first two games of the season, according to Kyle Odegard of the team's official site. Fellow safety Tyrann Mathieu is currently occupying a deep center field role as he eases his surgically repaired knee into game action, but until he's cleared for less predictable locales on the field, Jefferson should be afforded plenty of tackle opportunities.

Cardinals' Tony Jefferson: Re-signs with Cardinals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tony Jefferson signed his restricted free-agent tender from the Arizona Cardinals on Monday, the team's official site reports.

Offered the "low" tender at the outset of free agency, Jefferson could have been scooped up without the Cardinals receiving draft-pick compensation, but no organization decided to take the leap on the three-year pro. The development comes as a surprise after he ranked fourth on the team with 78 tackles, to which he added three forced fumbles, two interceptions (one for a touchdown), and two sacks. Although Arizona brought safety Tyvon Branch into the fold this offseason, Jefferson will likely take on a substantial role in the upcoming campaign due to Tyrann Mathieu's recovery from the second torn ACL of his career.
