  • Cardinals' Josh Rosen: Has confidence of new coach

    New head coach Kliff Kingsbury said he won't judge Rosen by his rookie-year film, adding that the young quarterback is "one of the most talented throwers you'll see," ESPN.com's Josh Weinfuss reports

    Stuck in a poorly designed offense with terrible blocking, the UCLA product completed just 55.2 percent of his passes for 5.8 yards per attempt as a rookie, taking 45 sacks and committing 19 turnovers (14 INTs, five lost fumbles) in 14 games. Kingsbury points to throwing ability and toughness as causes for optimism moving forward, perhaps hoping he can be the Sean McVay to Rosen's Jared Goff. The Cardinals have ample cap space to help with the rebuilding process, not to mention the first pick in each round of the upcoming draft. While it's unclear whether Larry Fitzgerald will play another season, the team does have a couple of skill-position building blocks in David Johnson and Christian Kirk (foot). If nothing else, Kingsbury should help elevate Rosen's passing volume with his pro version of an Air Raid offense.

  • Cardinals' David Johnson: Seeking to bounce back

    Johnson will be looking to bounce back under a new coaching staff in 2019, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

    During Steve Wilks' one-year run as the head coach in Arizona, the Cardinals cycled through Mike McCoy and Byron Leftwich at offensive coordinator, but neither helped Johnson return to form after a lost season in 2017 due to a dislocated left wrist. Overall, Johnson managed just five outings with 100-plus yards from scrimmage and earned five or more targets on six occasions last year after racking up 15 and 14, respectively, during the course of his 2016 breakout. The new coaching staff under Kliff Kingsbury has started to take shape, with James Saxon taking over as running backs coach after working with the likes of Le'Veon Bell, James Conner and Jaylen Samuels in Pittsburgh in recent campaigns. Kingsbury has yet to hire an offensive coordinator, but the presence of Saxon is an early indicator that Johnson is in good hands yet again.

  • Cardinals' Larry Fitzgerald: Remains undecided about 2019

    Fitzgerald has yet to make a decision on his playing status for the 2019 season, ESPN.com reports.

    In the previous two offseasons, Fitzgerald announced his intentions to return in February, so he seems to be following a similar schedule this time around. Although he gutted out a 16-game slate for a fourth consecutive campaign and 12th time in 15 seasons, the 35-year-old's production suffered due to hamstring and back injuries in the first half of 2018 and generally underwhelming quarterback play from the trio of Josh Rosen, Sam Bradford and Mike Glennon. Overall, Fitzgerald mustered his third-fewest catches (69) and lowest number of receiving yards (734) in a given season, while scoring six touchdowns in the Cardinals' league-worst offense. Whether or not he signs up for another year remains to be seen, but Rosen will be in his second season, and the team hired offensive guru Kliff Kingsbury from the college ranks, so Fitzgerald may be inspired to roll the dice yet again.

  • Cardinals' Bryant Mitchell: Inks deal with Arizona

    The Cardinals signed Mitchell to a reserve/future contract Thursday, Kyle Odegard of the team's official site reports.

    Mitchell spent the last three years playing in the CFL, including a 2018 breakout campaign in which he logged 60 receptions for 867 yards and three touchdowns. The 26-year-old will now work to translate his skills to the NFL level and attempt to carve out a depth role with the Cardinals this offseason.

  • Cardinals' Korey Cunningham: Undergoes successful surgery

    Cunningham underwent surgery to address his foot injury, according to his personal Twitter account.

    Cunningham sustained an undisclosed foot injury during a Week 16 loss to the Rams, the severity of which caused him to spend the final game of his rookie season on injured reserve. His resulting surgical procedure appears to have been a complete success, and Cunningham now begins his recovery process. The 2018 seventh-round pick will work to heal up in time to participate without limitations in offseason workouts.
