Cardinals coach Arians: I was not going to let Logan Thomas fail
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Cardinals coach Bruce Arians still believes in young quarterback Logan Thomas. Arians didn't want to ruin his confidence last season after being forced into action with multiple injuries to Arizona quarterbacks, reports the team's website.

"He's going to get a ton of work and those reps are invaluable," Arians said. "Just in decision-making, how fast you're getting it out of your hand, where you're going with it, where you're going when 'one' and 'two' are still covered. Are you still scrambling around or are you going to find your outlets? That growth process comes strictly from reps."

Arians still has a plan for the second-year pro.

"We drafted him for two years from now, not November," Arians said. "It just so happened his number got called (earlier.) I was not going to let him fail (in San Francisco) because once you fail those scars never go away.

"It's very hard to get the guys back in the locker room if you cost them the playoffs. I just wasn't going to put him in that situation. Right or wrong, it just was my decision."

Cardinals' Bruce Arians: Paul Fanaika will be 'good fit' for Chiefs
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

Cardinals coach Bruce Arians believes offensive guard Paul Fanaika will do well for the Chiefs, the team he signed with early in free agency, according to the Kansas City Star

Fanaika signed a three-year, $8.1 million deal. Arians said the Cardinals and Fanaika both needed a fresh start but that the offensive guard should do well with his new team. 

“He’s had some down games in some big games (for us),” Arians said, “but sometimes we’ll overlook (that) and say, ‘Wow, he’s going to make that much money? God bless you. Go ahead.’ But I think he’ll be a good fit in that offense.”

Cardinals LB Sean Weatherspoon looks to rebound from injury
by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com

Linebacker Sean Weatherspoon was signed by the Cardinals in free agency this offseason. He has high hopes that he'll rebound after rupturing his achilles tendon in 2014 while with the Falcons, according to the team's official website.

“Once it happened, I figured I’d come back from this,” Weatherspoon said. “That’s what I told myself when I was sitting there down and out looking at everything that was happening. I was down, but I was ultimately thinking about the comeback.”

In addition to missing all of the 2014 season, the 27-year-old missed all but seven games in 2013. The linebacker is optimistic that the time off could benefit him on the field.

“Mike Peterson played linebacker in the league for a long time, and he was a guy who took me under his wing in my rookie year in the league,” Weatherspoon said. “He would come out and he would make some plays, and I’d be like, ‘Man, how you still do that after so much time off and not even being the starter anymore, but you’re still able to just go out there and make it happen?’ He said, ‘It’s just like riding a bike.’

“I just have to get back to practicing a little bit more and being on that steady routine, but I definitely think it saved my legs being off of them for the past two years. I’m just looking forward to going out there and trying to reestablish myself as being the player that I am.”

In four years with the Falcons, Weatherspoon recorded 290 total tackles, eight sacks, 15 passes defensed, two interceptions and one forced fumble.

Report: UCLA QB Brett Hundley working out for Cardinals
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

UCLA quarterback Brett Hundley will participate in a private workout for the Cardinals, according to a report from ESPN.com. 

The Cardinals could be in the market for a quarterback given the fact that Carson Palmer is 35 years old and coming off a torn ACL. Backups Drew Stanton, Ryan Lindley and Logan Thomas may not be answers for the future in Arizona either. 

Hundley declared for the draft after throwing for 3,155 yards, 22 touchdowns and five interceptions as a junior. In a three-year career, Hundley threw for 9,966 yards, 75 touchdowns and 25 interceptions.
