Arizona Cardinals sign pair of running backs in Alfred Morris and Zach Zenner

The Arizona Cardinals announced a pair of signings on Wednesday as they get ready for the New Orleans Saints and then a quick turnaround against the NFC leading San Francisco 49ers.

We knew about the incoming signing of Alfred Morris, as the backup running back the Cardinals could lean on if David Johnson is again limited, but they are also signing Zach Zenner, as it appears that the injury to D.J. Foster is more severe than first thought.

No one cares about your fantasy team: Arizona Cardinals in the national fantasy spotlight

The only thing that can cause grown men to act like children more than NFL football is fantasy football. Here are two stories about how the Arizona Cardinals are causing meltdowns in the fantasy football world.

Have you ever tried to listen to someone talk about their fantasy football team? It usually sounds something like...

Kingsbury The Chameleon

Naysayers and cynics all over the USA were adamant from the get-go that Kliff Kingsbury and his “Pretty Boy” brand of Air Raid offense were going to fail miserably in the NFL.

The first and perhaps loudest critique of the Cardinals’ hiring of Kingsbury came closest to home from veteran Arizona Republic sportswriter, Kent Somers, who wrote in his January 8th, 2019 article/op-ed:

“It’s a bold move by the Cardinals. And a...

What does a finally great performance look like when you break down the snap counts?

Let’s take a look at the Arizona Cardinals defensive snap count against the New York Giants.

Defensive Line

Corey Peters - 51 (72%)
Rodney Gunter - 39 (55%)
Jonathan Bullard - 33 (46%)
Zach Kerr - 13 (18%)
Clinton McDonald - 6 (8%)

I think we can all agree this was the best day at the office for this group. Peters is the clear leader, but Bullard has come into his own as...

Chandler Jones named NFC Defensive Player of the Week

Vincent Carchietta-USA TODAY Sports

The Arizona Cardinals pass rusher notched four sacks in the win over the New York Giants.

This is starting to feel a little familiar.

A week after Kyler Murray was named NFC Offensive Player of the Week, the Arizona Cardinals took home another award.

This week, Chandler Jones was named NFC Defensive Player of the Week for his career day against the New York Giants.

From the team:

Another win in the books for the Arizona Cardinals as they prepare for their toughest test of the season, the New Orleans Saints.

The offense was heavy in the run game on Sunday, how did that play out in the snap counts?

Let’s take a look.

Quarterback

Kyler Murray - 65 (100%)

Running Backs

Chase Edmonds - 61 (95%)|
David Johnson - 3 (5%)

Cardinals sign former Pro Bowl RB Alfred Morris

In the midst of a surprising three-game winning streak, the Arizona Cardinals have added to their plethora of talent in the backfield. According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Arizona has signed former Pro Bowl running back Alfred Morris. This move comes with starter David Johnson nursing an ankle injury. A sixth-round pick of the Washington Redskins in 2012, Morris put up 4,272 total yards in his first three seasons. He earned Pro Bowl appearances in 2013 and 2014. Most recently, Morris was...

Cardinals sign former Pro Bowler Alfred Morris

The Cardinals have agreed to sign running back Alfred Morris, as Adam Schefter of ESPN.com tweets. To make room, they’ve dropped linebacker Ramik Wilson. Morris is on hand to help man the running back position while David Johnson nurses an ankle injury. He edged out Thomas Rawls and Zach Zenner in a recent audition as he looks to get his career back in track. Morris, 30, played 12 games with the 49ers last season. This offseason, Morris reunited with the Cowboys, but Ezekiel Elliott‘s...

Arizona Cardinals announce release of linebacker Ramik Wilson

Well, a little move for the Arizona Cardinals as they have created a roster spot as they announced the release of linebacker and special teams player Ramik Wilson.

Wilson was signed on October 9th, made it almost two weeks, and is now gone.

Which makes me think the team will see Ezekiel Turner back this week.

Wilson appeared in a single game with the Cardinals and now will be back out looking for work.

Wilson was a fourth-round selection out of Georgia from...

Three players the Arizona Cardinals could inquire about at the 2019 NFL trade deadline

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

As we approach the 2019 NFL trade deadline, it is next Tuesday, October 29th at 1pm Arizona time there have been a flurry of moves already.

The Los Angeles Rams have traded two first round picks for Jalen Ramsey.

They traded Marcus Peters for a fifth and a backup linebacker.

Then today, the New England Patriots traded a second round pick for Mohamed Sanu, which seems incredibly rich.

The question becomes, will the Arizona Cardinals be in the market to make...

It was a tough choice with Chase Edmonds carving the Giants’ defense on the ground, but this week I had to give a tip of the cap to Chandler Jones.

Racking up 4 sacks on the day for a career high with a forced fumble and recovery on one of those to boot, Chandler made the game a nightmare for Daniel Jones. In fact, it made for a fun bit of trivia.

Chandler Jones’ 4.0 sacks today are a career-high for him.

It’s the 1st four-sack performance by a...

Jay Ajayi is looking to get back into the NFL, and has at least one interested suitor as he begins working out. Ajayi is set to work out for the Arizona Cardinals this week, as first reported by NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, and could sign if he impresses. Ajayi is a year removed from an ACL tear, but he has assured teams that the injury is behind him and is ready to play at full health. Still only 26, the running back is three years removed from a 1,272-yard season with the Miami Dolphins....
