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.
Minter made just four tackles last season over 13 games, basically relegated to special-teams reps.
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:
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 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.
Palmer, 34, said he watched tape of the 2013 season and "it was like watching two different seasons, two different teams. It was amazing how much better we got across the board, from technique to execution, from the offensive line to the running backs to the routes run by wide receivers. What happens if we pick up where we left off?”
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.
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.
Ginn spent 2013 with the Panthers and had 36 catches for 556 yards and five touchdowns. He also averaged 23.8 yards per kick return and 12.2 yards per punt return.
He is expected to be the No. 3 receiver for the Cardinals behind Larry Fitzgerald and Michael Floyd.
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.
“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.
“I’m excited to get out there and start doing football-type things again," he said.
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.
Bernard finished the 2013 season with 17 tackles and 2.5 sacks in 12 games.
