The Arizona Cardinals have agreed to terms on a one-year deal with free agent linebacker Arthur Moats, according to Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio.

Moats brings veteran leadership to the defense, and will likely contribute on special teams in Arizona.

Cardinals Fire OC Mike McCarthy, Promote Byron Leftwich

Published

on

The Arizona Cardinals have fired offensive coordinator Mike McCoy amid constant struggles this year and following a 1-5 start to the season and their blowout loss to the Denver Broncos on Thursday Night Football.

With McCoy’s exit, the Cardinals are promoting quarterbacks coach, and former NFL signal caller, Byron Leftwich to offensive coordinator.

While Leftwich doesn’t have direct experience as an offensive coordinator, he is confident he can handle the role:

“I’m a pretty confident guy, but I had never done it, and I had never practiced it,” Leftwich said. “That’s the tough part. Knowing B.A., B.A. ain’t going to give you two weeks in practice to prepare. He gave me a 10-play period to call them. The first time I ever called plays was in the game. I wish I would have done a few things here and there better, but that’s the exciting part of growing in this business. That helped my growth.”

Cardinals Deny Shopping Patrick Peterson

Published

on

The Arizona Cardinals have denied rumors that they are actively shopping All-Pro cornerback Patrick Peterson with head coach Steve Wilks calling the rumors of a potential Peterson deal “ludicrous”, according to ESPN’s Josh Weinfruss.

The reports of Peterson being available in trade comes on the heels of last week’s report that the Cardinals were looking to deal  linebackers Deone Bucannon and Haason Reddick, and amid rumors that running back David Johnson is also available.

Arizona, who is currently 1-5, may be wise to start trading off players to stockpile assets, and also rid themselves of Peterson’s contract, which runs through the 2020 season and pays him roughly $12 million annually.

Cardinals GM Steve Keim Discusses Trade Rumors

Published

on

Arizona Cardinals general manager Steve Keim is addressing trade rumors that claim that the team is actively shopping safety Deone Bucannon and linebacker Haasan Reddick, and the GM dismissed those rumors during an appearance on 98.7 Arizona Sports.

One part of my job is to have dialogue with other teams,” Keim said said on 98.7, accoridng to the team website. “The one thing I won’t do, I won’t confirm or deny those things in public, I think you do those things behind the scenes. But it’s a lot of gossip, people enjoy it, it’s water-cooler talk, and a lot of stuff you’ll read is certainly false. Wednesday I woke up to three different names that were brought to my attention and those conversations never happened. So I would just say, for most fans, tread lightly, because very rarely are those accurate.”

Keim also mentioned some of the trade questions he has received.

“Some of the names brought up to me will do nothing but bring a chuckle out of me,” Keim said. “You have to listen. You never know what the compensation is going to be. It might be something you couldn’t resist. You look back at the Heschel Walker trade with Dallas, you can never say never. … Sometimes, there’s a lot of procrastination, where you’ll call and there are a lot of conversations that go nowhere, unfortunately. But it’s part of the business and a fun one for fans to follow.”
