2020 Arizona Cardinals Off-Season

Recommended Posts

The Angry Birds did a lot better than many expected this season. They were competitive in the majority of their games and won against some tough teams, as well. The offense was improved under the duo of the Kliffdalorian  and Baby Kyler.

Larry is back. That's step one. What should be step two of this off-season? What should be their major goals and minor goals, and what goals do you think they have an actual shot at achieving this year? How much can they grow and how far can they go?

Let's talk the Cardinals Off-Season!

Keim seems to have survived his latest DUI and is building a team around Murray
According to OTC , he's sitting on north of $ 51 M to spend in FA

Larry Fitz and DJ Humphries are both signed, so the list of guys they want to keep isn't onerous in terms of cap space

Cards have the 8th pick in rounds 1-4, that's solid ammo to add to the roster

Thank you! At least SOMEONE cares about the Cardinals!

Peter Schrager today predicted that the Arizona Cardinals would be the hottest free agent destination over Oakland, KC, and Miami. Makes sense, considering that they have a fun coach and a young QB who's still very early into his rookie contract. Means that they'll get paid longer before they're either, cut, traded, or the roster kind of stagnates. The climate is excellent for late-season football, as well.

Its an appealing decent destination itself and its close to Las Vegas and Los Angeles
And they've got enough cash to make it rain... even in the desert.
They've got a rising star at QB, an All Pro pass rusher and a modern stadium - those are building blocks for the future


NFC West is no cakewalk though, they're gonna have to really step up in class, even for a wildcard slot

Here's the Cards Depth Chart from Ourlads, the players in RED are FA's in March

And here's the Cards page listing Free Agents from OverTheCap

I'll be curious to see if AZ re-signs former Packer QB Brett Hundley to back up Murray. Hundley can run, just not sure if he can be an NFL QB
But he is from the area, so I'm sure he'd like to stick around in Phoenix

Almost $ 52 M in cap space available and that's before any cuts some through

We’re losing a home game in Mexico City.  I think they’ll pick us for Hard Knocks too.

Who's the best fit for the Cards in round 1? Lamb? Jeudy? Wirfs? Becton? Derrick Brown? What about a dark-horse candidate like Chaisson or Gross-Matos?

Lamb?

Murray is already lobbying for Lamb

https://cardswire.usatoday.com/2020/02/18/kyler-murray-ceedee-lamb-nfl-draft-relationship/

“Me and CeeDee have a great relationship,” Murray said. “That’s one of my boys. I would obviously be very fond of that pick. Obviously, I don’t make the choices. I’m here for whatever, but I’m looking forward to free agency and us adding some great players and adding more of them in the draft so we can continue to grow this thing.  “But yeah, if we pick CeeDee, that would be great. We have a very comfortable relationship. I’ve played with him, I’ve been with him for years, so yeah, I don’t think that would be a bad pick at all.”

Those 3.  We’ll know more about Becton after the combine...  I love his upside but he will always struggle to maintain lower weight.

For me, if Derrick Brown is sitting there, we have to take him. Huge need on this defense to have a stabilizing presence up front. After signing DJ Humphries, I would kind of like to trade back if Brown isn't there.
