Mendenhall battled knee and toe injuries last season while averaging 3.2 yards per carry. He turns 27 in June.
Dansby had a team-high nine tackles -- all solo. Bell totaled seven tackles (four solo, two for loss) and one sack. Moch had two solo tackles, one sack and two quarterback hits.
"He's a guy that we have great expectations for," Keim said. "I think the future's really bright for him."
Assuming Rashard Mendenhall leaves via free agency, Taylor could siphon carries away from Andre Ellington and possibly serve as the goal-line back.
“I don’t know what the future holds,” Fitzgerald told ESPN.com. “I can control what happens this year. Go for 1,300, 1,400 [receiving yards], 13 touchdowns, 1,000 catches in a Cardinals uniform. A large part of that is out of my control.
“You don’t control your destiny," he added. "That’s all I focus on, next year.”
Fitzgerald has posted three 1,400-yard seasons (2005, '07, 11). He caught a career-high 13 touchdowns in 2009.
The special teams selections are as follows:
Mathieu sustained ACL and LCL tears in the Week 14 game against St. Louis and was placed on IR two days later.
Cason then picked off Fitzpatrick in overtime, setting up Arizona's winning field goal. Earlier Cason recovered a fumble off Arizona's pooch onside kick starting the second half. Cason added four tackles.
He'll visit Seattle in Week 16.
Incumbent Cardinals kicker Jay Feely is about to hit free agency.
Keim would not say if the team would make Peterson the league's highest-paid defensive player. "Well, that's a good question," he told the website. "We'll have to see. I’ll tell you this, we want to keep him around here for a long time.”
Shaughnessy played in every game last season, recording 36 tackles, three sacks, a forced fumble and three fumble recoveries.
"There is no doubt he has plenty of juice left in the tank," Arians said. "He's in great condition. I would think he could play until 36, 37 easily."
Arians cited Heath Miller as the best tight end in the NFL because of his blocking.
"Tight ends for me block first, catch second," Arians said.
So for Housler, who is a catch-first guy, this isn't likely going to be a huge season when it comes to receptions. He had 39 catches for 454 yards and a touchdown in 2013 in his first season under Arians.
“Ryan has a chance this year,” Arians told the team's website. “He went into training camp (last year) and missed the entire preseason. It’s very hard to become a player during the season when you miss the entire preseason. He did impressive things on the scout team. The big thing, he came to work every day. The consistency of showing up to work every day, that will be the big thing for him in training camp this year.”
Arians also disclosed that Ellington has already added 10 pounds of muscle to his frame; the team indicated that they wanted him to bulk up without losing any speed.
Basically playing the smaller role in a tandem with Rashard Mendenhall last year, Ellington had 652 yards on 118 carries (5.5 avg.) with three touchdowns and eight runs for 20-plus yards. He also had 39 catches for 371 yards (9.5 avg.) with a score.
Winston has spent the last two seasons with two different teams but is considered a viable starting lineman in the league. He should improve a Cardinals O-line that allowed 58 sacks last season.
Last year, Dansby played under a one-year, $2.25 million contract. He will be 33 in November, but the report says the "Cardinals can't afford to lose" him.
The story suggests a two-year deal worth $10 million to $12 million makes sense for both parties with $6 million guaranteed.
“I think Michael is starting to reach his potential,” Arians told the team's website. “He still needs to be more consistent each week. He played through injuries for the first time which is a huge step for a young player to play through injuries. A lot of times they just sit themselves down. He wanted to win, he wanted to help us win. I thought he made great strides. This year, can he do it again?”
Tracy played 16 games with the Giants in 2012. He was cut near the end of the preseason in 2013. The Cardinals plan on using Tracy as a linebacker.
The Colts also elevated outside linebacker Daniel Adongo and tackle Xavier Nixon from the practice squad to the active roster, while adding fullback Robert Hughes and defensive tackle Jeris Pendleton to the practice squad.
Powers has 39 tackles (34 solo) and 10 pass defenses through 10 games. He needs one more pass defense to set a new career high and one more interception to tie a career high.
From his time in Arizona, Bucs general manager Jason Licht knows Roberts well. The Cardinals aren't expected to make a big push to retain him.
Brinkley, 28, was released by the Cardinals last month. In 15 games last season, he made three starts, tallying 27 tackles. He spent the first four seasons of his career with the Vikings after being drafted in the fifth round out of South Carolina.
“I’m excited to get out there and start doing football-type things again," he said.
“Jay is an unrestricted free agent, so it will be all business from here on out," Arians said after the season. "I love Jay to death. He was a captain. Wish he would have kicked the last kickoff down the middle.”
Feely, 37, made $1.55 million last year.
Shaughnessy and Abraham were dealing with injuries throughout the week. Washington was listed with an illness. Massie was listed on the injury report, but it was not injury related.
