Cards’ 2020 OL Thoughts and Questions

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

As all Cardinals’ fans know, the Cardinals have been doing their due diligence in scouting the 2020 draft class, most heavily at tackle and guard.

While most of the media focus on the Cardinals has been at upgrading the RT position, with Tristan Wirfs (Iowa) and Jedrick Wills (Alabama) receiving the most attention, it would appear, at least to me, that the two spots on the Cardinals’ OL that have the biggest question marks are at center and right...

While most NFL executives agree the Arizona Cardinals had a very good offseason, some were a bit surprised by the money they gave one of their big free agents.

Jordan Phillips had 9.5 sacks from the defensive line for the Buffalo Bills in 2019 and road that momentum into a three-year $30 million contract with the Cardinals.

One executive told Mike Sando in his review of the offseason in The Athletic, that he was surprised by the move:

“I like what...

The Arizona Cardinals have had what most would call a great offseason.

Mike Sando of The Athletic talked with some NFL executives about what the each team did this offseason and the astonishment of the Arizona Cardinals trade with the Houston Texans was something to see.

Executives were mystified by the trade because the team was able to include David Johnson and his full contract:

Arizona Cardinals RT Justin Murray signs exclusive rights tender

Arizona Cardinals right tackle Justin Murray on Thursday signed his one-year exclusive rights tender offer that the team extended to him on March 17. That officially locks in Murray for the 2020 season, where he could compete with veteran Marcus Gilbert for a starting role. Gilbert is an unrestricted free agent who was brought back despite coming off a season-ending ACL injury. Exclusive rights free agents have two or less accrued NFL seasons and cannot negotiate with other teams once their...

Justin Murray signs tender with Arizona Cardinals

The Arizona Cardinals exclusive rights tendered Justin Murray last week, today the young right tackle signed that tender with the team.

From the team:

Murray (6-5, 315) played in a career-high 14 games with 12 starts at right tackle last season with the Cardinals after being claimed off waivers from the Raiders on September 1. He helped the Cardinals offense finish the season with the NFL’s 10th-ranked rushing offense (1,990 yards) that averaged a...

Every year the NFL designs new hats for the NFL Draft.

Every year I buy one or two more hats for the NFL Draft.

This seasons hat I have to admit is one of my favorites that we have seen.

It is going to be a big year for the Arizona Cardinals and although it started before the draft, what the Cardinals do in the draft will have a big impact.

Cardinals pick DT Derrick Brown in Schrager’s NFL mock draft

Lately, the mock drafts are going the same way for the Arizona Cardinals. But most of those mock drafts have pegged them going offensive line in the first round after the team added to its front seven and wide receiver groups in the first week of NFL free agency. NFL.com’s Peter Schrager didn’t go that direction. As much as the narrative around Arizona is that it needs more protection for quarterback Kyler Murray, Schrager’s first mock draft had the Cardinals adding yet another piece...
