Cardinals To Sign Kendall Wright

Published

on

The Arizona Cardinals have signed veteran free agent wide receiver Kendall Wright to a one-year deal, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

In a corresponding move, the Cardinals waived cornerback Deatrick Nichols to create room on the roster for the addition of Wright, who spent the preseason with the Minnesota Vikings, who the Cardinals will play on Sunday.

Wright, who is traditionally a slot receiver, will offer another slot option for the Cardinals, who have deployed veteran Larry Fitzgerald in that spot.

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

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.”

Cardinals’ Steve Wilks Confident in Josh Rosen

Published

on

Arizona Cardinals head coach Steve Wilks is confident that with rookie quarterback Josh Rosen under center, the team will eventually find success, and was encouraged by Rosen’s performance during his first NFL start during a Week 4 loss to the Seattle Seahawks.

“When you look at some of the bright spots of the game yesterday, you definitely have to look at Rosen,” Wilks said, according to the Arizona Republic’s Katherine Fitzgerald. “I thought he gave us every opportunity to win that football game. Again, very poised, great leader.”

“I’m very excited about what we have in Josh. He gave us a spark that we needed. It’s disappointing we just couldn’t finish yesterday.”

Rosen’s approach, which is different from the more reserved and quiet Sam Bradford, seemed to have an impact on his teammates.

“Everybody, during the week when we found out, everybody wanted to step it up for the young guy and get out there and be able to help him get his first win, and we’re going to be able to do it soon,” Cardinals defensive end Markus Golden said.

Rosen now prepares to face the San Francisco 49ers for their Week 5 tilt and is looking to take another step in his development.
