Daryl Washington
News
Cardinals linebacker Daryl Washington was sentenced to one year of supervised probation in his aggravated assault case, reports Fox Sports. Washington will now be subject to a league suspension.
Rashard Mendenhall
News
Teams interested in signing running back Rashard Mendenhall have been told that he has retired from professional football, according to a report from ESPN's Adam Schefter on Saturday. 

Mendenhall published a Huffington Post column on Feb. 25 hinting retirement, saying "the journey is over." He battled knee and toe injuries last season while averaging 3.2 yards per carry for the Cardinals. 

Mendenhall spent his first five seasons in Pittsburgh before rushing for 687 yards and eight touchdowns on 217 carries with Arizona in 2013. He had two 1,000-yard seasons and rushed for 4,236 yards 37 touchdonws over his six seasons in the league.

LeQuan Lewis
News
The Cardinals signed free agent cornerback LeQuan Lewis to a two-year contract, reports the National Football Post. He played in five games for the Buccaneers in 2012, making one interception.
Andre Hardy
News
The Cardinals signed tight ends Brett Brackett and Andre Hardy and guard Christian Johnson to reserve/futures contracts.
Kevin Minter
News
With inside linebacker Karlos Dansby leaving Arizona for Cleveland, the Cardinals are counting on 2013 second-round pick Kevin Minter to fill his spot. Minter played special teams last year and got in for only one defensive snap.

“He doesn’t need to be Karlos,” defensive coordinator Todd Bowles told the team's website. “He needs to be Kevin.”

Minter has a reputation as a run stuffer, and coaches are confident he'll acquit himself well, if not fully compensate for Dansby's loss. Minter said he learned a lot from Dansby, who had 122 tackles, 6.5 sacks and 19 pass breakups last season.

“It was a little bit frustrating last year, but at the same time, you couldn’t help but learn,” Minter said. “Karlos treated it like a business. He came to work every day to work, whether it was eating the right things, watching film, doing extra workouts. He was a great role model. With what he left, I feel like I can pick up the slack.”

Dave Zastudil
News
The Cardinals re-signed punter Dave Zastudil to a two-year contract. He tied for the league lead with 35 punts inside the 20-yard line and averaged 45.7 yards per punt.
Ted Larsen
News
The addition of Jared Veldheer and the return of left guard Jonathan Cooper should make life easier for the Cardinals when they game plan versus opponents this season. Offensive coordinator Harold Goodwin admits that the right side of the line will involve a competition but overall he anticipates a huge jump in efficiency for the front five

" ... [T]he world knows we're looking to put the right side together. There is going to be great competition between Paul Fanaika and Ted Larsen and Earl (Watford)," Goodwin told the Arizona Republic. "Then you have Bobby (Massie), Bradley (Sowell) and along with Nate (Potter). The competition is going to be great and there is still the possibility of the draft, but who knows? It wasn't a great offensive line year last year, but the guys played consistently together and they got better as they went along."

Yeremiah Bell
News
The Cardinals offered safety Yeremiah Bell a one-year contract, but the 36-year-old likely will retire, reports Fox Sports 910. Bell started every game last season, recording 76 tackles, 10 pass breakups, two interceptions and a sack.

Bell posted four seasons with at least 100 tackles in his 10-year career.

Tony Jefferson
News
Cardinals linebacker Karlos Dansby, safety Yeremiah Bell and linebacker Dontay Moch were some of the standout players for the defense during a 13-10 win Week 4 at Tampa Bay.

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. 

Other Cardinals defenders who made an impact Sunday were defensive back Tony Jefferson (seven tackles), linebacker Jasper Brinkley (seven tackles) and safety Tyrann Mathieu (six tackles).

Stepfan Taylor
News
Running back Stepfan Taylor averaged 3.2 yards on 36 carries as a rookie, but general manager Steve Keim envisions Taylor with a much bigger role in 2014. Keim likes Taylor's power and noted he was used late in Arizona's Week 16 win in Seattle.

"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.

Brittan Golden
News
The Cardinals received several offensive contributions from a few role players during Sunday's loss to the 49ers in Week 17.

Tight Rob Housler led the way with five grabs for 78 yards on six targets. Stepfan Taylor rushed for seven yards on two carries and had one reception for 7 yards. Jim Dray caught one pass for a gain of 18 yards. Jaron Brown and Brittan Golden were each targeted once but held without a grab in a 23-20 defeat.
Larry Fitzgerald
News
Cardinals offensive coordinator Harold Goodwin believes that the addition of receiver Ted Ginn will only help the prospects for Larry Fitzgerald and Michael Floyd to have big seasons in 2014

"[I]t's going to help the overall passing game a lot from a play-action standpoint and a drop-back standpoint," Goodwin said of Ginn's arrival per the Arizona Republic. "It's going to help Larry (Fitzgerald) and Michael (Floyd)."

The thinking is that Ginn will attract enough coverage to keep extra defenders from playing tight on Fitzgerald and Floyd. Without a third receiver boasting speed like Ginn, Fitzgerald had 954 yards and 10 touchdowns while Floyd posted 1,041 yards and five touchdowns. 

Justin Bethel
News
The NFL unveiled the Pro Bowl rosters for 2014Friday, and they come with a twist; for the first time, selections were made without regard for conference. The teams will be chosen via televised draft Jan. 22.

The special teams selections are as follows:

Punter: Brandon Fields, Dolphins; Johnny Hekker, Rams.

Placekicker: Matt Prater, Broncos; Justin Tucker, Ravens.

Punt returner: Antonio Brown, Steelers; Dexter McCluster, Chiefs.

Special teamer: Justin Bethel, Cardinals; Matthew Slater, Patriots.

Frostee Rucker
News
The Cardinals have agreed to deals with Frostee Rucker, Jay Feely and Jake Ballard, the official team website reports. Rucker, a defensive lineman, inked a two-year deal while Feely and Ballard landed one-year contracts. 
Tyrann Mathieu
News
Tyrann Mathieu's rehabilitation from knee surgery is on schedule, but it's doubtful the Cardinals free safety will be ready for the start of training camp, reports the Arizona Republic.

"I think Ty is going to up to the wire," coach Bruce Arians told the paper. "I still anticipate him on PUP, but he refuses to believe it. That's a good thing."

Mathieu tore two knee ligaments last December against the Rams.

Injury
Knee - Questionable for start of training camp
Alameda Ta'amu
News
The Cardinals re-signed exclusive rights free agent nose tackle Alameda Ta'amu to a one-year contract. He started three of 14 games last year with Arizona and totaled 13 tackles.
Danny Hrapmann
News
The Cardinals signed kicker Danny Hrapmann to a reserve/futures contract after a tryout. He spent the last two training camps with the Steelers.

Incumbent Cardinals kicker Jay Feely is about to hit free agency.

Patrick Peterson
News
The Cardinals have picked up the fifth-year option for cornerback Patrick Peterson, reports NFL.com. Peterson will earn $10.081 million in 2015.

John Estes
News
The Cardinals signed center John Estes, who played two games for the Jaguars in 2011. Estes missed the 2012 season with a knee injury and was not on a roster last season.
Matt Shaughnessy
News
Free agent linebacker Matt Shaughnessy will return to the Cardinals, after spending the 2013 season there. He has agreed to a two-year contract with the Cardinals, according to The Arizona Republic, just one day into free agency.

Shaughnessy put together a solid first season in Arizona, starting 12 of 16 games. He had 36 tackles and three sacks, while forcing one fumble, his first in three seasons. 

Everrette Thompson
News
The Cardinals waived or released the following players Friday: cornerback Crezdon Butler, linebacker Antonio Coleman, safety Blake Gideon, linebacker Clark Haggans, defensive tackle Ricky Lumpkin, linebacker Colin Parker, cornerback Larry Parker, wide receiver DeMarco Sampson, tight end Steve Skelton, running back Alfonso Smith, linebacker Quan Sturdivant, defensive end Ronald Talley, defensive end Everette Thompson, tight end Martell Webb and wide receiver Isaiah Williams.
Carson Palmer
News
Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer would be OK if the team drafted a quarterback in the NFL Draft, reports the team's official website.

Palmer, 34, said if the team drafts a quarterback it would make sense.

"If you are in a position to draft the best player on your board, and that's the best position to be in as an organization, and (a quarterback) is the best player on the board, you are not only making your team better by creating competition but you are helping out the future," Palmer said. "I know I'm not going to play forever. It’s hard for us players to admit that. The older you get the harder it is to admit it. You don't see it happening. You still feel good, you still feel confident, you still feel healthy. But that's the reality. That's the business. It doesn't matter how you feel about it, whether it irks you or you don't care. That’s the game."

Palmer is coming off a solid season in 2013. He threw for a career-high 4,274 yards with 24 touchdowns and 22 interceptions.

Rob Housler
News
Don't look for Cardinals tight end Rob Housler to have a big season in 2014. That's not how coach Bruce Arians uses tight ends, reports the team's official website.

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.

Antonio Cromartie
News
Cardinals coach Bruce Arians knows opponents will attack cornerback Antonio Cromartie because they don't want to throw at All-Pro Patrick Peterson on the other side of the field. Arians insists he's fine with that, despite Cromartie giving up seven touchdown passes and a 100.7 passer rating last year. 

"I love the fact that there's going to be a lot of balls thrown at him, because I didn't throw that many when I was playing against him," Arians said, per ESPN.com.

Kenny Rowe
News
The Cardinals signed five players to their practice squad: linebackers Kenny Rowe and Dontay Moch, safety Curtis Taylor, wideout Kerry Taylor and center/guard Philip Blake.
Jonathan Dwyer
News
The Cardinals beefed up their running back depth in free agency, adding former Steelers back Jonathan Dwyer on a one-year deal Wednesday, according to AZCardinals.com. Financial terms of the deal were not immediately available.

Dwyer disappointed despite appearing in a career-high 15 games for the Steelers in 2013. His production fell off across the board, as he finished with 197 yards on 49 carries, without a touchdown.

Orhian Johnson
News
The Cardinals signed safety Orhian Johnson, an undrafted rookie out of Ohio State, to their practice squad. 
JoJo Dickson
News
The Cardinals have signed linebacker JoJo Dickson to a reserve-future deal. Dickson spent time on the Arizona roster this season and with the Jets in 2012, but has yet to record any statistics.
Ryan Lindley
News
The Cardinals have ruled quarterback Ryan Lindley, safety Curtis Taylor, running back Ryan Williams, linebacker Dontay Moch, offensive lineman Nate Potter, tight end Kory Sperry and defensive end Ronald Talley inactive for Week 17 against San Francisco.
Ted Ginn
News
Cardinals offensive coordinator Harold Goodwin believes that the addition of receiver Ted Ginn will only help the prospects for Larry Fitzgerald and Michael Floyd to have big seasons in 2014

"[I]t's going to help the overall passing game a lot from a play-action standpoint and a drop-back standpoint," Goodwin said of Ginn's arrival per the Arizona Republic. "It's going to help Larry (Fitzgerald) and Michael (Floyd)."

The thinking is that Ginn will attract enough coverage to keep extra defenders from playing tight on Fitzgerald and Floyd. Without a third receiver boasting speed like Ginn, Fitzgerald had 954 yards and 10 touchdowns while Floyd posted 1,041 yards and five touchdowns. 

Earl Watford
News
With the Cardinals' release of Daryn Colledge, second-year pro Earl Watford could start at right guard, according to the team's website. He did not play a snap as a rookie.

“From a physical aspect, he’s probably one of the better guys we’ve got, just as a total athlete from top to bottom,” offensive coordinator Harold Goodwin said. “We’ve got these evaluation sheets for kids coming out now, and he is always going to read out pretty well. I don’t worry about the physical tools on him at all. In pass protection he’s solid. If he gets his hands on guys, he’s solid.

“It’s all mental for Earl," Goodwin added. "He’s coming along. He’s just got to pick it up some. He’s got to. It’s the NFL. It stands for Not For Long. For Earl, (this season) is big. To me, in my mind, it’s make-or-break from the standpoint of, you’ve got talent, but now it’s about trying to take the next step. And once again, if you can’t do it, we’ve got to go to the next guy.

“Talent is not the issue. It’s maintaining the information he’s learned. When he started here, there was some regurgitation. If we have to start all over again from ground zero, it’s not good.”

Dan Williams
News
The Cardinals inactive list for Week 4 against the Buccaneers features seven players, three of whom entered Sunday's game on the injury report. Defensive back Rashad Johnson (finger), linebacker Kevin Minter (hamstring) and defensive lineman Dan Williams (not injury related) were joined by quarterback Ryan Lindley, running back Ryan Williams, and offensive linemen Bobby Massie and Earl Watford.  
Nate Potter
News
The Cardinals have ruled quarterback Ryan Lindley, safety Curtis Taylor, running back Ryan Williams, linebacker Dontay Moch, offensive lineman Nate Potter, tight end Kory Sperry and defensive end Ronald Talley inactive for Week 17 against San Francisco.

Offensive coordinator Harold Goodwin admits that the right side of the line will involve a competition but overall he anticipates a huge jump in efficiency for the front five

" ... [T]he world knows we're looking to put the right side together.

"Then you have Bobby (Massie), Bradley (Sowell) and along with Nate (Potter). The competition is going to be great and there is still the possibility of the draft, but who knows? It wasn't a great offensive line year last year, but the guys played consistently together and they got better as they went along."

Kenny Demens
News
The Cardinals re-signed linebacker Kenny Demens to the practice squad and released linebacker Zack Nash from the squad. Demens is an undrafted rookie out of Michigan.

Darren Fells
News
The Cardinals signed tight end Darren Fells and wideout Kerry Taylor to their practice squad, according to the team's website.
Bryan McCann
News
The Cardinals re-signed cornerback Bryan McCann. He played in six games last season, primarily on special teams.
Drew Stanton
News
The Cardinals have ruled the following players as active for Sunday's season finale against the 49ers in Week 17: John Abraham (groin), Darnell Dockett (shoulder), Rob Housler (groin), Rashad Johnson (ankle), Rashard Mendenhall (finger), Carson Palmer (ankle, right elbow), Matt Shaughnessy (groin), Drew Stanton (knee) and Daryl Washington (ankle).
Eddie Whitley
News
The Cowboys continued trimming their roster Friday in preparation for the regular season and released the following players: defensive linemen Clifton Geathers, Rob Callaway and Ben Bass; linebackers Baraka Atkins, Orie Lemon and Adrian Hamilton; wide receivers Saalim Hakim and Tim Benford; quarterback Rudy Carpenter; tight end Andrew Szczerba; defensive backs Eddie Whitley, Lionel Smith, Teddy Williams and Akwasi Owusu-Ansah; and running back Shaun Chapas.
Ryan Williams
News
Cardinals running back Ryan Williams has apparently been working hard this offseason on regaining his form. Williams didn't play at all in 2013 and was listed as inactive every week after injuries sidelined him in 2011 and most of 2012. 

"3 yrs ago i was told that i wouldnt be able to run like i use to," Williams tweeted. "[M]y squad will tell u, since last summer...i've been runnin better. Blessed!!...To still be doin it like i do it!! In due time...itll show!!"

The Cardinals have spoken highly of Williams this offseason and seem open to giving him a chance to earn a roster spot. 

Andre Ellington
News
Cardinals coach Bruce Arians expounded this week on his plan to build the offense around second-year running back Andre Ellington.

"He is still not a guy who you will pound up the middle 30 times a game and survive," Arians said at the NFL owners meetings. "He can run the football 30 times a game if you do it correctly, but you'd rather have him have 10 catches and 20 carries and let Stepfan Taylor or (Jonathan) Dwyer have the rest of the carries."

As excited as he is about Ellington, Arians said the offense must be diverse.

"You've got to watch that you don't create too much stuff and then he sprains an ankle and you don't have any offense because you put too much in one basket," Arians said. "You still have to have your cinch-it-up, grind-it-out football.”

Eric Winston
News
Free agent right tackle Eric Winston, who has started 119 straight games, said the Cardinals haven't shown strong interest in re-signing him, reports the Arizona Republic.

"I can't say there have been super-positive talks or anything like that," he said. "It doesn't seem like anything is being done. I'd still love to come back to Arizona. I love the guys in the locker room, love the city, and I think the team will be really good with or without me. They're ready to have a special run out there.

"At the same time, it is what it is. I'm looking to get on a team as soon as possible, hopefully before the draft. I know I still have some miles left on the tires, and I'm looking to burn them off."

The Cardinals could go with Bobby Massie and Bradley Sowell at right tackle. Winston, 30, was just elected president of the NFL Players Association, a position he says should not affect his signability.

Teddy Williams
News
The Cardinals re-signed cornerback Bryan McCann, who was cut at the end of the preseason, after placing wide receiver Teddy Williams on injured reserve. Williams suffered a torn Achillies Week 11 at Jacksonville.
Mike Gibson
News
Cardinals LB John Abraham, C Mike Gibson and DE Frostee Rucker are active Week 12 against the Colts.

All three players were able to practice in full both Thursday and Friday. Gibson did not practice Wednesday due to an injury.

Calais Campbell
News
Cardinals linebacker Marcus Benard and defensive end Calais Campbell teamed up on a sack in Week 13; each finished with a half sack. 

Benard now has 1.5 sacks on the season, while Campbell has six. 

The Cardinals face the Rams in Week 14.

Michael Floyd
News
Cardinals coach Bruce Arians has high expectations for third-year receiver Michael Floyd heading into this year.

Floyd had 65 catches for 1,041 yards and five touchdowns in 2013, but Arians thinks he can improve this season.

"Michael Floyd is still developing," Arians said in an interview with CBSSports.com at the NFL owners meeting. "He became a 1,000-yard receiver, but he can improve as much this year as he did last year. His consistency level. He learned how to play hurt, he played through injuries and he made big plays. But he lost a lot of big plays. I have a tape for him to watch when he gets back. A good one and a real bad one. We need to eliminate that real bad one."

Adrian Tracy
News
Pass rusher Adrian Tracy has signed a future deal with the Cardinals.

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 addition of Jared Veldheer and the return of left guard Jonathan Cooper should make life easier for the Cardinals when they game plan versus opponents this season.

There is going to be great competition between Paul Fanaika and Ted Larsen and Earl (Watford)," Goodwin told the Arizona Republic.
