Cardinals' Antoine Bethea: Challenged for starting role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bethea isn't guaranteed to open the regular season in the starting lineup given the Cardinals' offseason signing of safety Tre Boston, Bob McManaman of the Arizona Republic reports.

Boston signed with the Cardinals earlier this week after finishing the 2017 season as a top-10 safety in pass coverage, per Pro Football Focus. The 34-year-old Bethea, on the other hand, received a slightly lower grade in coverage this past season but was significantly better in run support. However, it might not matter who is formally considered the starter at free safety here, as both defensive backs could see significant playing time under creative head coach Steve Wilks.

Cardinals' Antoine Bethea: Will be retained by Arizona
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cardinals plan to pick up the $1 million roster bonus owed to Bethea (pectoral) on Friday, the fifth day of the 2018 league year waiver period, John Gambadoro of Arizona Sports 98.7 FM reports.

It was an easy decision for the Cardinals to retain Bethea after the veteran safety enjoyed a productive first season in the desert, recording 57 tackles, a forced fumble and a career-high five interceptions in 15 games before missing the finale with a torn pectoral muscle. The 33-year-old has two years remaining on his contract and is due a $3 million base salary in 2018 in addition to the roster bonus.

Cardinals' Antoine Bethea: Shifts to IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bethea (pectoral) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians announced earlier Tuesday that Bethea came out of Sunday's win over the Giants with a torn pectoral muscle, so the safety's move to IR was fully expected. Bethea's absence for the season finale against the Seahawks leaves Harlan Miller as the only backup behind starting safeties Tyrann Mathieu and Budda Baker.

Cardinals' Antoine Bethea: Shut down with torn pectoral muscle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bethea suffered a torn pectoral muscle in Sunday's 23-0 win over the Giants and will be held out for the Dec. 31 season finale against the Seahawks, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Though Bethea sustained the season-ending injury in the Week 16 victory, he at least submitted his best outing of the season in the process, picking off two passes and collecting three tackles. Bethea finished the 2017 campaign with 57 stops, a team-leading five picks and nine pass breakups across 15 games, more than validating the Cardinals' decision to ink him to a three-year, $12.75 million deal in the offseason. Head coach Bruce Arians said Tuesday it was still being decided whether Bethea would require surgery to address the injury.

Cardinals' Antoine Bethea: Active Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bethea (knee) is listed as active Sunday against the Giants, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Following back-to-back DNPs with a limited showing Friday, Bethea fit in enough activity to appease the Cardinals' training staff. On the season, Bethea primarily has served as a reserve, yet he's still posted 54 tackles, three interceptions, one sack and one forced fumble due to Arizona's propensity to use five, six or more defensive backs on any given play.
