Cardinals to Add Future Hall of Fame Free Agent LB Terrell Suggs

The Cardinals defense will add some intensity to it when free agency starts on Wednesday, as longtime Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs is coming home.

Suggs has told the Ravens he is not coming back to Baltimore, and instead is heading back home to Arizona, Jeremy Bergman of NFL.com reports.

The longtime linebacker, who played high school ball in Arizona and was an All-American at Arizona State, spent the entirety of his 16-year NFL career in Baltimore. Entering his age-37 season, Suggs is returning to where it all began.

Suggs is still producing at a high level despite his age. Since returning from a torn Achilles injury during the 2015 season, Suggs has missed just one game and recorded 26 sacks.

Not only can Suggs still play, he'll also add a lot to the young Cardinals locker room, giving tips and advice to a young defense that can only learn from a future Hall of Famer.

Cardinals Release Linebacker Josh Bynes

The Cardinals have released linebacker Josh Bynes, a source told Adam Schefter of ESPN.

Bynes, 29, started 11 games for the Cardinals last season before a thumb injury ended his season. He finished with 75 tackles and a career-high two sacks.

The Cardinals will save $1.775 million on their salary cap with the move. He was scheduled to be paid a base salary of $1.5 million in 2019.

Report: Redskins Talking About Dealing for Cards QB Josh Rosen

The Redskins have “openly spoken” about trading for Cardinals quarterback Josh Rosen according to Tony Pauline of draftanalyst.com.

Coach Kliff Kingsbury and GM Steve Keim have tried to hush rumors about taking a quarterback with the No. 1 overall pick (and thus shopping Rosen), but both have admittedly done a poor job doing so.

If so, positioning last year’s No. 10 overall pick ahead of veteran Colt McCoy would make a ton of sense for Washington and could possibly land the Redskins a true quarterback of the future.

NFL Network analyst Daniel Jeremiah noted it’s currently “50-50” among the people he’s spoken to on whether the Cards pull the trigger on Kyler Murray with the first pick in April.

QB Kyler Murray to the Cardinals with the First Pick a ‘Done Deal’?

All eyes at the NFL Combine in Indy have been on quarterback Kyler Murray, from people talking about his height to his hand size.

For the Cardinals and new coach Kliff Kingsbury, there’s question on if the team is actually going to pull the trigger and take the QB first overall in the draft in April.

Tony Pauline of Draftanalyst.com reports that the Cardinals coach has been chatting about the QB, and that he indeed does want to take him with the first overall pick, putting the future for last year’s first-round pick Josh Rosen clearly in doubt.

Adding fuel to the Murray fire, Arizona Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury was telling people last night that it’s a “done deal” the Cardinals will select the Oklahoma Sooners quarterback with the first pick of the draft. Whether or not Kingsbury has the final say on the choice remains to be seen, but stay tuned.

SB Nation NFL Mock Draft Has Cardinals Taking Ohio State DE Nick Bosa in Round One

The NFL Draft is still 66 days away, but already there’s plenty of mock drafts and projections as to what teams are going to do once Roger Goodell takes the platform in Nashville, Tennessee and gets booed as he does every year.

The Cards are sitting at number one in the first round, and will look to improve the team to try and make a run at the NFC West Title in 2019.

As far as projections go, SB Nation today released their first Mock Draft for April’s big event, and they have the Cards going Defensive end in the first round, taking Ohio State rusher Nick Bosa.

The Cardinals have plenty of work to do under new head coach Kliff Kingsbury. So much so, it’s probably easier to point out what Arizona doesn’t need to fix this offseason. In an ideal situation, the Cardinals could trade down and try to fix both lines. But the value of the first pick is lesser this year since teams might not jump to No. 1 for a quarterback. Because of that, holding there and taking Bosa makes the most sense. But after that, the Cardinals need to fix one of the NFL’s worst rosters — starting with protecting franchise quarterback Josh Rosen.

Cardinals Announce the Hiring of Two Additions to Their Coaching Staff

The Cardinals have added to their coaching staff Tuesday with a couple of assistants, as the team has announced Don Shumpert will join the coaching staff as a participant of the Bill Bidwill Coaching Fellowship, and Rusty McKinney is coming aboard as a defensive assistant.

McKinney spent the past three seasons as a defensive quality control coach with the Dolphins.

Before joining the Dolphins, McKinney worked as an intern for two seasons with the Browns and spent five years coaching at Bentley University.

Shumpert arrives in Arizona after working as an offensive assistant last year with the Giants.

Shumpert, a former receiver who spent time with the Bears and Chiefs, served as a graduate assistant for two seasons at his alma mater, the University of Iowa. He assisted with the receivers and with special teams.

Cardinals CB Patrick Peterson Says He’s ‘Here to Stay’ in Arizona

Cardinals All-Pro CB Patrick Peterson doesn’t want to leave Arizona, and while it was a tough season for he and the team, he’s now saying that he is “here to stay” in Phoenix.

Peterson had stated that he wanted to be traded, but now that the offseason is here and cooler heads have prevailed, the cornerback doesn’t want to go anywhere.

“I just want to apologize to everybody for asking for that trade in the middle of the season. I’m here to stay, baby,” Peterson told the teams’ official website.

“I think we’re definitely moving in the right direction… I’m happy with the decisions that ownership made this offseason.”

Last season was a disaster in the desert for the Cardinals, as the team went just 3-13 under head coach Steve Wilks, who was fired at years end.

The team will have the first overall pick in the NFL Draft for new head coach former Texas Tech coach Kliff Kingsbury, and look like they can rebuild in a hurry and be back to being competitive in the NFC West.

Cardinals Hire Longtime NFL Assistant Tom Clements as Offensive Assistant

Longtime NFL assistant Tom Clements has been hired as passing game coordinator/quarterbacks coach on the staff of new coach Kliff Kingsbury in Arizona.

The 65-year-old Clements, who has been out of the NFL the past two years, will be the primary offensive assistant because there will be no offensive coordinator on the staff, with Kingsbury calling plays and doing other coordinator-type duties.

Clements coached for the Green Bay Packers for 11 seasons. He was quarterbacks coach there from 2006-2011, offensive coordinator from 2012-14 and associate head coach/offense in 2015-16.

In Green Bay, Clement helped develop Aaron Rodgers and he’s counted on to do the same kind of work with Josh Rosen, who just completed a difficult rookie season, a 3-13 campaign that resulted in coach Steve Wilks being fired.
