  • Cardinals' Zaven Collins: Larger role in store in 2022

    Collins is in line for a starting role at inside linebacker for the Cardinals in 2022 after the offseason release of Jordan Hicks, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports.

    Despite selecting an inside linebacker in the first round for the second consecutive draft last year, Arizona rolled with Hicks and 2020 first-rounder Isaiah Simmons in 2021. Both Hicks and Simmons sprung for more than 100 tackles and at least 950 snaps, while Collins' output was more stated (25 tackles on 361 snaps between defense and special teams). With Hicks out of town, Collins will team with Simmons in the middle of the Cardinals defense moving forward. Assuming he takes on most of Hicks' workload this season, Collins could approach triple-digit tackles after averaging 7.4 per game in three years at Tulsa.
