Kevin Minter
News
Cardinals general manager Steve Keim said Wedneday that the team "needs to address" the linebacker position in this year's draft, adding that 2013 second-round pick Kevin Minter has to elevate his game, The Times-Picayune reports.

"We drafted Kevin Minter in the second round a few years back and we have high expectations for Kevin," Keim said Wednesday. "But he's got to step up his game. There are two types of linebackers. There are the mike linebackers, the heavy-legged guys, the more downhill thumper types. Then you have the more athletic, will linebacker types who can run and cover and may not be as physical at the point of attack. Those are two necessary positions for us that we need to address."

Minter recorded 45 tackles in 2014 while making five starts in his 16 appearances. Coach Bruce Arians also addressed the linebacker Thursday, saying that the team needs to  "continue to develop Kevin Minter into a better player."

Cardinals defensive backs Jerraud Powers and Justin Bethel will battle for the right cornerback spot in OTAs and preseason training camp. 

Coach Bruce Arians would like to add another corner to the depth chart, after Antonio Cromartie left via free agency, but Powers and Bethel don't need to worry about veteran competition, per ESPN.

"Not at all," Arians said of the possibility of a veteran signing. "I'd really like to add a young one -- a young, long, fast one because I think we have enough depth with the guys we have." 

Frostee Rucker
News
Cardinals starting safety Tyrann Mathieu and defensive end Calais Campbell are both set to play Saturday against the Panthers in the Wild Card round of the NFC playoffs. Both were considered probable coming into the matchup.

Mathieu has played the last two weeks with a club cast on his thumb after having surgery on a broken bone. 

Also set to play Saturday are Larry Foote (knee) and Frostee Rucker (ankle).

Tyrann Mathieu
News
Cardinals safety Tyrann Mathieu believes that he is regaining his health and he's ready to make an impact this season, according to the team's website.

“It’s been a long time since I’ve been healthy,” Mathieu said Monday. “Last year I felt like I took a back seat. I played well my rookie year and then last year it was kind of, eh, I was there but I wasn’t there. This (year) is more important for me because I really want to let everyone know I’m back and I can still make some plays.”

Mathieu tore his ACL and LCL toward the end of the 2013 season. He recently said that the comeback was "way harder than I thought."

Head coach Bruce Arians talked about how Mathieu was not himself last season.

“You saw him fight through it last year,” Arians said. “He was not the player he was used to (being) and it was very frustrating for him.”

Mathieu was aware of the chatter from the outside world and he is using that as motivation going forward.

“You hear people talk and I had time to listen to them talk, so it’s like … I hear it,” Mathieu said. “Like I said, I didn’t feel like I made enough plays last year to help our team. I am looking forward to this year because I know I can do it.”

The 22-year-old has registered 106 total tackles, one sack, three interceptions and one forced fumble in 26 games played during his two-year career.

Despite the diabetic diagnosis, Peterson said he doesn't expect it to be an issue moving forward.

"No question it made a big difference and once they found out what the problem was, they put their hands around the throat, wrangled it and we moved forward from it," he said.

Jonathan Dwyer
News
Cardinals running back Jonathan Dwyer pleaded guilty Thursday in Maricopa County (Ariz.) Superior Court to a single count of disorderly conduct pertaining to his domestic violence case, according to The Arizona Republic.

Dwyer was sentenced to 18 months of probation and community service following the plea, according to a court spokesman.

The 25-year-old Dwyer was arrested Sept. 17 for a July 21 incident in which he allegedly head-butted his wife in the face and broke her nose after she refused his sexual advances and bit his lip, according to reports taken at the time.

Dwyer's wife told police she reported the incident in September because she feared for their child's safety after seeing reports of Vikings running back Adrian Peterson's arrest on child-abuse charges.

The Cardinals placed Dwyer on the reserve/non-football injury list after his September arrest. He did not play again during the 2014 season.

Kareem Martin
News
Cardinals pass-rusher Kareem Martin could be going from having his hand in the dirt to standing up with the intent of rushing the passer. 

Martin, who spent his rookie season at defensive end, is being considered for a move to outside linebacker, coach Bruce Arians told the team's website

"With his length, I wouldn't say he's (San Francisco’s) Aldon Smith at this point in his career, but he's got that body style and he's shown some stuff off the edge,” Arians said. “So we are going to look at him to see if he can play in space at all. That might be a spot where he can find his niche as a pass rusher.”

Martin actually spent one day during his rookie year in the outside linebackers meeting room before making the move to defensive end. When Martin worked with the scout team, he would occasionally work as an outside linebacker.

“Being on the edge won’t be so foreign to me,” Martin said. “I’m ready for it.” 

Ryan Lindley
News
Cardinals quarterback Ryan Lindley went 16 of 28 for 81 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions in Arizona's 27-16 loss to Carolina. 

Lindley struggled to find his receivers throughout the game, with his leading receiver Larry Fitzgerald reaching just 31 yards. 

He was also sacked four times. The Cardinals totaled just 78 yards in the game, the fewest by any team in a playoff game in NFL history.

Lindley's season ends with just 644 yards passing and three touchdown passes in four games for the Cardinals. He also had six interceptions.

Jonathan Cooper
News
Cardinals general manager Steve Keim said guard Jonathan Cooper will move from left guard to right guard, per ESPN.

"It’s no reflection on Coop in terms of disappointment," Keim told reporters at the NFL meetings on Monday.

The Cardinals recently signed former 49ers guard Mike Iupati in free agency, thus moving Cooper to the right side.

Cooper, 25, was a first-round selection by the team in 2014. He started two of the 10 games that he played in last season.

"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.

Logan Thomas
News
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."

Sean Weatherspoon
News
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.
