John Carlson's unexpected retirement leaves Cardinals in a bind at TE
by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer

The unexpected retirement of John Carlson has left the Cardinals depleted of experienced tight ends on the roster, reports ESPN.com.

Troy Niklas, last year's second-round pick, and Darren Fells are currently the only tight ends on the team who caught passes in 2014, combining for eight receptions and 109 yards during the regular season.

Carlson caught 33 passes for 350 yards and one touchdown last season.

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Cardinals tight end John Carlson has decided to retire from the NFL, the team announced.

"After much thought and consideration, my wife Danielle and I know that this is best decision for us," Carlson said in a statement. "I was blessed to play seven seasons in the NFL for three tremendous organizations - the Cardinals, Vikings and Seahawks. I will always treasure the experiences and relationships made during that time but I'm also very excited about the next phase of my life and what's ahead."

Carlson announced the decision Tuesday and the Cardinals placed him on the reserve/retired list. In 2014, he caught 33 passes for 350 yards and one touchdown.

Cardinals' Michael Floyd leads team in receiving yards vs. Rams
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Cardinals wide receiver Michael Floyd caught two of his three targets for a team-high 55 yards in his team's 12-6 win over the Rams in Week 15.

Floyd kicked off the team's second scoring drive by hauling in a 49-yard pass, beating his man deep and catching a perfectly placed ball before being brought down. He didn't have much more of an impact on the game, but the Cardinals resorted to ball control and excellent defense to pick up the win.

Larry Fitzgerald was the only Arizona player with more than two receptions, catching seven passes for 30 yards. Rookie John Brown caught two of his six targets for 22 yards. Tight end John Carlson and wide receiver Ted Ginn each caught their only target.

The Cardinals have a tough matchup on the schedule next week, facing the Seahawks at home in Week 16.
