Cardinals' Josh Bynes: Will play Mike LB in 2018
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Steve Wilks recently said Bynes will handle middle linebacker in the Cardinals' switch in defensive scheme from a 3-4 to a 4-3, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports.

Bynes will line up between Will LB Deone Bucannon and Sam LB Haason Reddick, two of the Cardinals' last four first-round picks. A journeyman linebacker, Bynes previously earned a significant snap count in 2015 with the Lions, tallying 82 tackles on 78 percent of the defensive snaps. In the two outings (Weeks 12 and 13) in which he surpassed that usage with the Cards last season, he racked up 17 tackles, but Bucannon only logged five D snaps during that stretch. With Bucannon healthy, Bynes may struggle to post a considerable number of stops from game to game, but the prospect of a guaranteed gig still should be beneficial.

Cardinals' Josh Bynes: Re-signs with Arizona
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cardinals and Bynes (ankle) agreed to a three-year contract Wednesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Networkreports.

The Cardinals opted to let veteran inside linebacker Karlos Dansby walk in free agency, leaving Bynes as the current candidate to take over in the starting lineup next to dollar linebacker Deone Bucannon. In the two games in which he received the most snaps last season (Weeks 12 and 13), Bynes posted a combined 17 tackles and one forced fumble, so the front office may have been confident that they had a competent in-house replacement for Dansby.

Cardinals' Josh Bynes: Expected to re-up with Cardinals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bynes (ankle) is in line to re-sign with the Cardinals when free agency opens Wednesday, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports.

With starters Karlos Dansby and Deone Bucannon set to hit free agency Wednesday, Bynes is needed as a possible replacement. In his seventh season, Bynes made 36 tackles, one sack and one interception while playing more than 20 defensive snaps in a game just four times.

Cardinals' Josh Bynes: Totals 36 tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bynes (ankle) finished the 2017 season with 36 tackles (31 solo), two forced fumbles, one sack and one interception in 14 games for the Cardinals.

Bynes put together a solid two-game stretch in Weeks 12 and 13 with 17 tackles (16 solo), but failed to garner a significant defensive role through most of the season. The 28-year-old signed a one-year contract with the Cardinals last spring and is slated to become an unrestricted free agent.

Cardinals' Josh Bynes: Inactive for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bynes (ankle) is listed as inactive for Sunday's game against the Seahawks, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Bynes will miss his second consecutive game, but he rarely played enough snaps to be fantasy relevant. Scooby Wright will fill in as the top depth linebacker in Sunday's matchup.
