 Latest Cardinals Player Notes
Jun 8 2017 - T.J. Logan
  RB T.J. Logan has impressed Cardinals coaches with his speed. Logan has been electrifying as both a runner out of the backfield, a pass-catching threat and as a kick returner. It could make the team re-calculate its idea of possibly adding a veteran running back.


Jun 8 2017 - Haason Reddick
  LB Haason Reddick, Arizona's first-round draft pick, signed a four-year contract, the team announced Thursday. Spotrac calculated that his contract would have a total value of $13,477,966 and a signing bonus of $7,942,157. The 6-foot-1, 235-point Reddick was a first-team All-American Athletic Conference selection out of Temple, He started 14 games in 2016 and totaled 65 tackles, 22.5 tackles for loss, a team-high 10.5 sacks, one interception, three forced fumbles and a fumble recovery. His 22.5 tackles for loss led all players in the FBS and also set a conference single-season record. Reddick has played so well in offseason workouts that coach Coach Bruce Arians has him playing with the first team with veteran Deone Bucannon sidelined following offseason ankle surgery.


Jun 6 2017 - A.Q. Shipley
  C A.Q. Shipley, expected to be the starter again this season, hasn't been able to participate in any of the team's offseason workouts after undergoing surgery to repair a core-muscle issue. He is expected to be ready by the start of training camp. "Into the offseason, I was feeling it every day," Shipley said. "I was going to push through it and deal with it, but we talked about it and everybody decided we didn't want it to linger into the season."


Jun 6 2017 - Scooby Wright III
  LB Scooby Wright made an impression as soon as he joined the Cardinals last December. A seventh-round pick of the Browns in 2016, Wright excelled on special teams and has continued to turn heads during offseason workouts. "He's playing extremely well at linebacker and he's one of those guys that I have to say 'Whoa' to because he's going full tilt," coach Bruce Arians said, adding, "He came in here last year and he helped fix our special teams because he's dynamite covering. ... He got to where the guys watched him cover. That's always a fun thing when the sidelines say, 'Hey, watch Scooby' and he'd go down and blow some stuff up."


Jun 6 2017 - Patrick Peterson
  CB Patrick Peterson will remain the Cardinals' primary punt returner, coach Bruce Arians said, at least until someone else steps up and makes the coach change his mind. "Until I get a better one and one I trust back there," Arians said. "And I do trust Pat." Receivers John Brown and J.J. Nelson both have expressed an interest in competing for the No.1 punt-returning job. Arians said they'll each get their chance, perhaps along with another player or two, when training camp begins.


Jun 6 2017 - Robert Nkemdiche
  DT Robert Nkemdiche suffered a strained hamstring and likely will miss the final two days of mandatory mini-camp. The injury isn't thought to be serious.


Jun 6 2017 - Chris Hubert
  WR Chris Hubert has signed with the Arizona Cardinals, the team announced Tuesday. Hubert, 24, is back with the Cardinals after being released by the team on May 10. He split his rookie season in 2016 between Arizona's practice squad and the active roster. He did not accumulate any stats.


Jun 6 2017 - Daniel Gray
  CB Daniel Gray has signed with the Arizona Cardinals, the team announced Tuesday. Gray, 23, was an undrafted free agent out of Utah State. In three seasons with the Aggies, Gray recorded 87 tackles, one interception, 10 passes defensed, 1 1/2 tackles for a loss and one fumble recovery over 27 games.


Jun 6 2017 - Alex Bazzie
  LB Alex Bazzie has signed with the Arizona Cardinals, the team announced Tuesday. Bazzie, 26, spent this offseason with the Colts and Panthers before being released by the latter on May 30. He spent the last three seasons with the BC Lions of the Canadian Football League, totaling 83 tackles, 29 sacks, two forced fumbles and eight special teams tackles in 50 games.


May 19 2017 - Dorian Johnson
  G Dorian Johnson was signed to a four-year rookie contract by the Cardinals on Friday. Johnson was the team's fourth-round pick out of Pittsburgh in last month's NFL Draft. Johnson was seen as a second-round pick who slid to the fourth because of a medical recheck that revealed a health condition related to his liver. It's producing enzymes at a rate five times higher than normal, but the 6-foot-5, 305-pound Johnson said he has had the condition his entire life and it is being controlled through medication.


May 16 2017 - Deone Bucannon
  LB Deone Bucannon recently underwent ankle surgery and will be sidelined for three to four months, according to coach Bruce Arians. Bucannon initially injured the ankle in November and was eventually placed on injured reserve. Bucannon recorded 89 tackles in 13 games last season. He has posted more than 80 tackles in each of his three NFL seasons and has five sacks, four recoveries and one interceptions.


May 15 2017 - Larry Clark
  WR Larry Clark was wigned after he participated in their rookie mini-camp this past weekend. Clark played last season at Colorado State-Pueblo after transferring from San Diego State. He appeared in five games for the ThunderWolves, catching 22 passes for 248 yards and four touchdowns.


May 15 2017 - Chad Williams
  WR Chad Williams, the team's third-round pick out of Grambling State, caught 90 passes his senior year and he did it despite being suspended for one game after being arrested last May for possession of marijuana and a firearm. The charges eventually were dropped, and Williams said he was unaware there was a gun in the car.


May 15 2017 - Haason Reddick
  LB Haasan Reddick, the team's first-round draft choice, on rookies being asked to learn the majority of the Cardinals' offensive and defensive schemes by the end of the club's three-day rookie mini-camp: "When you're being asked to play a sport, it's to be expected. This is your job. You get to weed out who is just out and who is trying seriously to make a living. You definitely want to see who can learn and definitely to see who is taking it seriously and who is not."


May 15 2017 - Jumal Rolle
  CB Jumal Rolle, a five-year veteran, was signed to a one-year deal and may get a chance to compete for the starting job opposite Patrick Peterson. When Arizona reports to training camp, Rolle will be lumped into a group of contenders that includes Justin Bethel, Brandon Williams, Harlan Miller and Rudy Ford.


May 11 2017 - Blaine Gabbert
  QB Blaine Gabbert, 27, is expected to sign a one-year contract with the Cardinals after spending the past three seasons with the 49ers. A former No. 10 overall pick by the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2011, Gabbert started 13 games during his stay in San Francisco. He completed 56.9 percent of his passes for 15 touchdowns, 13 interceptions and 2,958 yards but won just four games. Gabbert began last season as the 49ers' starter but was benched in favor of Colin Kaepernick. Before landing with the 49ers, he spent three seasons with the Jaguars and between the two teams has thrown for 7,351 yards, 38 touchdowns and 37 interceptions while completing 56 percent of his passes.


May 9 2017 - Jumal Rolle
  CB Jumal Rolle signed a one-year contract with the Arizona Cardinals, the team announced Tuesday. Rolle, 26, has 17 tackles, three interceptions, four passes defensed and four special teams tackles over 19 games with the Texans and Ravens. He missed the entire 2016 season with an Achilles injury after being promoted to the Ravens' active roster on Dec. 15, 2015.


May 3 2017 - Tony Bergstrom
  OL Tony Bergstrom signed a one-year contract Wednesday, adding depth to the Arizona Cardinals' offensive line. Bergstrom, 30, has experience at both center and guard in his five years in the NFL. He played in 15 games with the Houston Texans last season before being released on April 13.


Mar 29 2017 - Harvey Binford
  WR Harvey Binford signed a free agent deal with the Cardinals on Wednesday. He worked out at the NFL Pro Player Combine held at the Cardinals' training camp last week in Tempe, Ariz. Binford spent last season's training camp with Green Bay before being released by the Packers on the team's final roster cut. He also played for the Arena Football League's Philadelphia Soul in 2015-16.


Mar 29 2017 - Andre Ellington
  RB Andre Ellington will move to wide receiver this season, Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said Wednesday. Signed to a one-year deal earlier this month, Ellington has proven to be better in the passing game during his four seasons in Arizona and struggled in his lone campaign as the team's featured back. The 5-9, 199-pound Ellington saw his carries dwindle from 201 in 2014 to a total of 79 over the last two seasons, including 34 for just 96 yards in 2016.


Mar 14 2017 - Jarvis Jones
  LB Jarvis Jones signed a one-year contract with the Arizona Cardinals, the team announced Tuesday. Jones spent his first four years in the league with the Pittsburgh Steelers after being selected in the first round of the 2013 NFL draft out of Georgia. He played in 50 games, including 35 starts, with the Steelers and totaled 125 tackles, six sacks, two interceptions, four forced fumbles and three fumble recoveries.


Mar 13 2017 - Andre Ellington
  RB Andre Ellington is returning to the Cardinals on a one-year deal. The 5-foot-9, 199-pound Ellington played in 53 games (15 starts) in his first four seasons with the Cardinals after he was selected in the sixth round of the 2013 NFL Draft out of Clemson. Multiple injuries hampered the 28-year-old Ellington during his career, although he owns 1,697 rushing yards and nine touchdowns on 398 attempts (4.3 yards per carry average) while adding 999 receiving yards and three TDs on 112 receptions.


Mar 10 2017 - Phil Dawson
  K Phil Dawson agreed to a two-year contract with the Arizona Cardinals on Friday. Last season with the San Francisco 49ers, Dawson connected on 18 of 21 field goals.


Mar 10 2017 - Karlos Dansby
  LB Karlos Dansby agreed to a one-year contract with the Arizona Cardinals on Friday. Dansby rejoins the Cardinals for the third time after spending last season with the Cincinnati Bengals. He previously played with the Cardinals for six seasons (2004-09) after beginning his career with Arizona as a second-round pick (33rd overall) in the 2004 NFL Draft.


Mar 9 2017 - Antoine Bethea
  S Antoine Bethea agreed to a three-year deal, the Arizona Cardinals announced Thursday. Bethea was targeted to replace free agent strong safety Tony Jefferson, who is expected to sign with the Baltimore Ravens. The 32-year-old Bethea was released by the San Francisco 49ers on Tuesday.


Mar 8 2017 - Chandler Jones
  LB Chandler Jones agreed to a five-year contract with the Arizona Cardinals, effectively removing the franchise tag assigned Jones on Feb. 27. Jones was acquired from the New England Patriots prior to the 2016 season and was the team's top priority in the offseason, head coach Bruce Arians said during the NFL Scouting Combine last week. Terms of the deal were not immediately available, but Jones is expected to strike it rich. The deal is likely to make Jones one of the highest-paid defensive players in NFL and should be finalized before the official start of free agency at 4 p.m. ET Thursday.


Mar 7 2017 - Antoine Bethea
  S Antoine Bethea were released by the San Francisco 49ers on Tuesday. Bethea started 39 games over the past three seasons for the 49ers. He had 110 tackles last season while also having one interception and one forced fumble. The 49ers saved approximately $5.75 million by releasing Bethea, an 11-year veteran who spent his first eight seasons with the Indianapolis Colts.


Mar 7 2017 - Jermaine Gresham
  TE Jermaine Gresham and the Cardinals onTuesday agreed to a four-year deal two days before Gresham would have become a free agent. Gresham caught 37 passes for 391 yards and two touchdowns last season in his second campaign with the Cardinals. The 28-year-old Gresham was a two-time Pro Bowl selection during five seasons with Cincinnati but hasn't equaled the success with the Cardinals. He had 280 catches in five seasons with the Bengals but just 55 in two years with Arizona. Gresham has 335 receptions for 3,336 yards and 27 touchdowns in seven NFL seasons.


Feb 28 2017 - Chandler Jones
  OLB Chandler Jones was given the "non-exclusive" franchise designation by the Cardinals on Monday, one week before the NFL deadline. As promised by team president Michael Bidwell and head coach Bruce Arians, Jones is unlikely to leave the desert. Arians said the priority for the Cardinals is working out a long-term agreement with Jones, who was acquired in 2016 via trade from the Patriots.


Feb 9 2017 - Carson Palmer
  QB Carson Palmer told team president Michael Bidwill that he will return to play next season, the team announced Thursday. The 37-year-old Palmer hinted that he would return for the 2017 season, but delayed a final decision until he determined how his body responded to the beating he took this past season. Palmer's 2017 salary of $15.5 million becomes fully guaranteed Friday. He is signed through the 2018 season.


Feb 3 2017 - Carson Palmer
  QB Carson Palmer hasn't made a decision but Arizona Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said Friday he expects Palmer will return to the team for the 2017 season. "I think he'll announce he's coming back real soon," Arians told ESPN on Friday. "I think it's just a matter of letting all the bumps and bruises heal, have a great time with the kids snow skiing ... and he'll be back." Palmer threw for 4,233 yards with 26 touchdowns and 14 interceptions in 2016, a season in which he missed one game due to a concussion and also dealt with lingering hamstring soreness. He is scheduled to earn $17.5 million next season, which would be his fifth with the Cardinals.


Feb 2 2017 - Larry Fitzgerald
  WR Larry Fitzgerald announced Wednesday that he will return to the Arizona Cardinals next season. Fitzgerald led the NFL with 107 catches this season, and his 1,023 receiving yards ranked 20th. He scored six touchdowns. A 10-time Pro Bowl honoree, Fitzgerald leads all active players with 14,389 receiving yards, the ninth-best total in NFL history. Only five players are above 15,000.


Jan 5 2017 - Richie Leone
  K/P Richie Leone was signed to a futures contract for the 2017 season by the Arizona Cardinals. Leone, who was a three-time semifinalist for the Ray Guy Award in college at Houston, spent time with the Baltimore Ravens and Pittsburgh Steelers before continuing his career in Canada. Leone made 65 of 90 field goals in 35 games with the BC Lions and also averaged 49.4 yards per punt.


Jan 5 2017 - Aaron Dobson
  WR Aaron Dobson was signed by the Arizona Cardinals on Thursday. The forner second-round pick by the New England Patriots enjoyed a productive rookie season in 2013 with 37 receptions for 519 yards and four touchdowns. He followed that up by competing in just 12 contests over the last two years. Dobson also spent time with the Detroit Lions in 2016, but did not appear in any games before his release on Oct. 8.


Jan 4 2017 - Tony Jefferson
  S Tony Jefferson was upset at the low tender offer the Cardinals gave him a year ago as a restricted free agent and he was even more disappointed when he couldn't get a better offer from another team. Not this time around. "I'm not restricted, that's why," he said. "You never know what's going to happen (in free agency). It's always kind of a tricky thing. But I think this time around will be kind of fun."


Jan 4 2017 - Chandler Jones
  OLB Chandler Jones told reporters he'd like to return to the Cardinals next season, although he couldn't offer any specifics about how negotiations might be going with the team before he hits the free-agent market. That's because the Cardinals won't let it happen, according to coach Bruce Arians. "Chandler's not going anywhere because, if we have to, we will franchise him," Arians said. "Hopefully, we will get it all done and be able to move on."


Jan 4 2017 - Tyrann Mathieu
  S Tyrann Mathieu said no amount of injuries, be it the two torn ACLs he already has experienced since joining the NFL in 2013 or the shoulder problem that ended up this season short, could make him depressed enough to fall off the wagon and start smoking marijuana again. "No, no, no," he said. "I've never been tempted. I never really had any urges to go back and use or do anything to put my career in jeopardy. It was just more emotional, just me feeling down, depressed. But no way, man. Once you go through something like that and you experience the worst of it, you know you don't want to go down that dark road ever again."


Jan 4 2017 - Justin Bethel
  CB Justin Bethel was limited for most of the season because of a painful foot injury that required surgery in the offseason and never quite healed. It cost him a shot at winning a starting corner job opposite Patrick Peterson and it prevented him from earning his fourth Pro Bowl selection as a special-teamer. Bethel, though, found success during the team's final two games as a slot cornerback, a position coach Bruce Arians said could be ideal for Bethel moving forward. "I think Justin found his spot inside," Arians said. "He played really well in the nickel and we'll have to see if we can create a nickel or dime situation. He's done it in the past when Tyrann Mathieu is the nickel and he's had tight ends or somebody else."


Jan 2 2017 - Chandler Catanzaro
  K Chandler Catanzaro had his highs and lows during the season and, although Arians has expressed faith in the second-year kicker, he said there are no guarantees about Catanzaro's future with the team. "We'll wait and see," Arians said. "Again, a lot of it's going to be contractual. I forget what his tender would be. That's all up to Steve (Keim). He's a very talented young guy. Whether he's here or not, we'll see."


Jan 2 2017 - Marcus Cooper
  CB Marcus Cooper, a Pro Bowl alternate, received high praise from coach Bruce Arians a day after the season ended. When asked whether he felt good about the team's depth at the position and whether the Cardinals needed to use a high draft pick to find a suitable starter opposite Patrick Peterson, he said no. "Marcus should've had another interception yesterday. He got Pro Bowl nominations so that's pretty damn good," Arians said. "I don't know if you can get better unless you're a starter in the Pro Bowl. Brandon (Williams) is going to be a hell of a player. I think we have more than enough guys back there."


Jan 2 2017 - D.J. Humphries
  OT D.J. Humphries began the season as the starting right tackle but moved to the left side, his natural position, following a season-ending triceps injury to Jared Veldheer. Coach Bruce Arians said both players will be looked at as the starting left tackle and no decision will be made until later this year.


Jan 2 2017 - David Johnson
  RB David Johnson avoided serious injury as an MRI exam on Monday revealed he suffered only a sprained MCL in his left knee during Arizona's 44-6 rout of the Rams at Los Angeles on Sunday. Johnson will have skip the Pro Bowl later this month, but he couldn't have been happier to learn his knee will not require surgery or major offseason rehab. "A lot of relief," Johnson said. "A tremendous amount of relief to know there was no significant injury and I was very proud that my knee was strong enough and those ligaments were strong enough that it prevented me from having a serious injury."


Jan 2 2017 - David Johnson
  RB David Johnson, named to the Pro Bowl this year, suffered to what appeared to be a serious knee injury in the first half. Johnson was hurt when he attempted to cut back on a running play and had his left leg bent at an awkward angle as two Rams defenders tackled him. After the game, Arizona coach Bruce Arians said he didn't believe the injury was serious. Johnson will undergo an MRI on Monday. Johnson was helped to the sideline and carted to the locker room. He rushed for 6 yards on five carries and had 38 yards receiving on three catches before being hurt. Johnson ran for 1,239 yards this season and also caught 80 passes for 879 yards. His 20 total touchdowns are a club record. Johnson also was attempting to become first NFL back to run for at least 100 yards in all regular-season games.


Jan 2 2017 - Larry Fitzgerald
  WR Larry Fitzgerald had five receptions for 43 yards on Sunday against the Rams, allowing him to top 1,000 yards in receiving for the eighth time in his career and extending a franchise record. Fitzgerald, who finished with 1,023 yards, also passed Pittsburgh's Antonio Brown for the NFL lead in receptions with 107.


Jan 2 2017 - Carson Palmer
  QB Carson completed 20 of 38 passes for 255 yards and an interception as the Cardinals (7-8-1) rolled to a 44-6 victory over the Rams on Sunday at Memorial Coliseum. Palmer returned to the stadium where he made a name for himself at USC en route to a Heisman Trophy in 2002. "I said earlier to you guys, I never dreamt I would get an opportunity to play in this facility again, and it was everything I could have asked for and more," Palmer said. "It was a beautiful day."


Dec 30 2016 - Evan Boehm
  C Evan Boehm will be make his first NFL start on Sunday and it will come at right guard. The rookie was pressed into action there during last week's win at Seattle when Taylor Boggs went down with a shoulder injury, and Boehm spent the better part of his action trying to fend off Michael Bennett. Against the Rams, he gets the pleasure of also trying to stop Aaron Donald.


Dec 30 2016 - Robert Nkemdiche
  DT Robert Nkemdiche (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday.


Dec 30 2016 - Sio Moore
  LB Sio Moore (ankle) is questionable for Sunday.


Dec 30 2016 - Marcus Cooper
  CB Marcus Cooper (back/calf) is questionable for Sunday.


Dec 30 2016 - John Brown
  WR John Brown (illness) is questionable.
