Cards' Bruce Arians compares J.J. Nelson to Emmanuel Sanders
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

Cardinals coach Bruce Arians gave 2015 fifth-round pick J.J. Nelson quite the compliment. 

Via 98.7 FM in Arizona, Arians said the former UAB receiver reminds him of Broncos receiver Emmanuel Sanders, based on their size, speed and style of play. Nelson is 5-10, though he's just 156 pounds. Arians coached Sanders when both were in Pittsburgh. 

However, his speed is something Arians has been familiar with for a long time. 

"It's funny because I was at a track meet five years ago, four years ago, in Alabama — the state championships and my granddaughter was running," Arians said. "This kid from Midfield won the 100, 200, 4x100 — little skinny dude. My son and I go, ‘Who in the hell is that?'

"It just happened to be J.J. Nelson."

Nelson will team up with speedy second-year wideout John Brown on offense. Arians said he reached out to quarterback Carson Palmer, who apparently approved of the pick. 

"He said, ‘I love it,'" Arians said.

Cardinals' Arians: Andre Ellington to continue in same role
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said after his team drafted running back David Johnson in the third round that Andre Ellington is expected to continue in his same role next season, ESPN.com reports.

"I think Andre will continue his same role," Arians said. "We’ll keep him healthy and let him continue to develop as a player, but the nice thing David can do is he can do everything Andre does, so you don’t have to change if there was an injury."

Ellington served as a three-down back for the Cardinals last season, but averaged just 3.3 yards per carry while racking up 660 rushing yards and three rushing touchdowns. He also gained 395 yards on 46 receptions while scoring two touchdowns through the air. After racking up eight carries of at least 20 yards in just 118 attempts in his rookie season, Ellington managed just four carries of 20-plus yards while receiving nearly twice the workload in 2014.

Cardinals exercise fifth-year option on Michael Floyd
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Cardinals wide receiver Michael Floyd will be in Arizona for the next few years, as the team picked up their team-option on him Wednesday, the team announced.

"We determined that exercising the fifth year was the option that clearly made the most sense," general manager Steve Keim said. "Michael has shown a lot of good things in his time with us and we fully expect him to make a step forward this season. We have high expectations for him on and off the field and look forward to him delivering for us."

Floyd is now under contract through 2016 after catching 47 passes for 841 yards and six touchdowns in 2014.
