Cardinals’ Larry Fitzgerald tries his hand at singing for coral reefs

On the field, Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald is a future hall of famer. When it comes to rapping, it might not be his strong suit. Along with singer Alexander Star, former New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez and Cleveland Browns wide receiver Jarvis Landry, Fitzgerald tried his hand at some bars in “This is my Era.” Related Links Larry Fitzgerald re-signs with Arizona Cardinals for 2020 season Cardinals' Larry Fitzgerald to play in WM Phoenix Open Pro-Am...

Packers vs. 49ers, NFC Championship Game: Kickoff time, odds, TV broadcast, & more

Stan Szeto-USA TODAY Sports

It is time for the 2020 NFC Championship Game.

The Arizona Cardinals beat both of the participants in their 2018 season, the worst in team history.

That’s how quickly things can turn in the NFL.

The 3-13 Cardinals won three games last season, the two teams they beat play for the right to go to the Super Bowl on Sunday.

Maybe next season we will see a little more from the Arizona Cardinals.

Of course, it’s been four years since the Cardinals were in a game...

Kyler Murray contractually can’t play baseball?

Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray caused a bit of a kerfuffle earlier this week when he indicated he still had interest in playing baseball at some point. “I think I could. … Athletically, I think yeah, I could do it. I’ve been playing both my whole life. I would love to add that to the resume,” he told Bob McManaman of the Arizona Republic (Twitter link). Fortunately for Cardinals fans, they don’t have to worry about that anytime soon. Murray’s NFL contract specifically bars...

Carson Palmer: Cardinals ‘system might not be built’ for David Johnson

There is tons of respect between former Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer and current Arizona running back David Johnson. Palmer took Johnson under his wing in his first few seasons and in Bruce Arians’ offense helped the running back to 1,239 rushing yards and 879 more receiving in 2016. Of course, you know the rest of the story. Johnson got hurt in 2017, signed an extension and under two head coaches since Arians left the team hasn’t been the same. Johnson’s future remains in...

Is Cardinals QB Kyler Murray interested in playing baseball?

It appears this story is not going to die down any time soon.  A first-round pick of the Oakland Athletics in 2018, Kyler Murray opted to give up a near $5 million signing bonus to play in the NFL. The former Heisman Trophy winner was ultimately selected No. 1 overall by the Arizona Cardinals in the 2019 NFL Draft and is coming off a brilliant rookie season. Any thought that Murray playing two sports would be a thing of the past can now be thrown out the window. The electric young...

This will be the first time that Reddick will be playing his most natural position of 34 SOLB.

Larry Fitzgerald returning to Cardinals for 17th season

The legendary career of Larry Fitzgerald will continue for at least one more season. The Cardinals announced on Wednesday that the veteran receiver is returning for 2020 on a one-year extension. Instead of retiring in the offseason, which some expected the 36-year-old to do, Fitzgerald will take the field for Arizona for a 17th season. Cardinals coach Kliff Kingsbury said last month that Fitzgerald could “definitely” be a productive part of the team’s offense in 2020, and he planned to...
