  • Green should benefit from DeAndre Hopkins' six-game suspension to begin the 2022 season, Jess Root of USA Today reports. Since this year's NFL Draft kicked off last Thursday, the state of the Cardinals' receiving corps has changed, with the team acquiring Marquise Brown from the Ravens and the subsequent announcement of Hopkins' suspension Monday. Without Hopkins, Brown and Green should serve as Arizona's primary outside receivers, while second-year pro Rondale Moore and veteran tight end Zach Ertz man the slot. In his age-33 season last year, Green was relatively healthy for a second consecutive campaign, hauling in 54 of 92 passes for 848 yards and three touchdowns in 16 games.

  • The Cardinals and Green agreed to a one-year contract Thursday, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports. A perennial Pro Bowler for the first seven years of his career, the 2011 first-round pick has entered a different phase since sitting out 2019 due to injury. The 2021 campaign marked Green's first with the Cardinals, and he fared well with 54 catches (on 92 targets) for 848 yards and three touchdowns in 16 contests. As he heads into his age-34 season, he'll again play second fiddle to DeAndre Hopkins in Arizona's passing game, likely vying for looks from Kyler Murray with Rondale Moore and potentially another offseason addition to the receiving corps.

  • Green recorded 54 catches on 92 targets for 848 yards and three touchdowns in 16 games during the 2021 season. In 2020, Green logged an injury-free campaign for the first time since 2017 en route to a 47-523-2 line on 104 targets for the Bengals. He parlayed that into a one-year, $6 million contract with the Cardinals last March, and following the 2021 NFL Draft the team's receiving corps included DeAndre Hopkins, Green, Christian Kirk and rookie second-rounder Rondale Moore. The additions gave coach Kliff Kingsbury and quarterback Kyler Murray the firepower they lacked in their first two years together, and Arizona was clicking on all cylinders until Hopkins hurt his hamstring in Week 8. Murray also sat out three games in the second half due to injury, and Green and company struggled with consistency the rest of the way. Green again will be an unrestricted free agent March 16, so it remains to be seen where the 11-year pro winds up next season.

  • Green caught four passes for 23 yards on nine targets against Seattle on Sunday. The Arizona passing game was disappointing against Seattle, and if there's a single greatest culprit it's arguably Green. His nine targets ranked second behind only Zach Ertz (10), yet his yardage total ranked fifth, including behind two running backs. Green has been serviceable at times in 2021 but has sometimes struggled with the finer points of wide receiver play. He'll need to find the old version of himself for the Cardinals to live up to their playoff ambitions.

  • Green caught three of six targets for 74 yards in Sunday's 25-22 win over the Cowboys. He very nearly had a 45-yard touchdown on the Cardinals' first possession, but Kyler Murray underthrew the ball, resulting in Green getting taken down at the three-yard line instead. The veteran wideout was mostly quiet after that, but he still wound up topping 60 yards for the fourth time in the last six games. Green will look to wrap up the regular season on a high note in Week 18 against the Seahawks.
