Bears signed RT Bobby Massie, formerly of the Cardinals, to a three-year, $18 million contract.
The deal includes $6.5 million guaranteed. A fourth-round pick in 2012, Massie started 46 games at right tackle for the Cardinals over the last four seasons. Pro Football Focus gave him negative grades as a pass protector last season, but he has been a solid run blocker throughout his career. After struggling at right tackle, this signing should allow Kyle Long to move back to his natural guard spot. Mar 9 - 5:04 PM

ESPN Cardinals reporter Josh Weinfuss reports the Giants and Bears are showing interest in free agent RT Bobby Massie.

The Broncos have also been linked to Massie. Being that he's pretty much a right tackle-only, Massie's market shouldn't catch fire, though he did have a solid final month of the 2015 season. He shouldn't command much money.
Mar 9 - 10:21 AM

Bleacher Report's Jason Cole reports the Broncos will make a "serious run" at free agent RT Bobby Massie.

Massie would play right tackle in Denver with LT Ryan Clady returning on a revised contract. Massie is expected to be looking for $8 million-plus per year.
Mar 8 - 1:58 PM

Cardinals activated RT Bobby Massie from the reserve/suspended list.

It remains to be seen if Massie will be returning to a starting job. Coach Bruce Arians claimed before Week 1 that Earl Watford would remain in the lineup even after Massie's return, but Watford was shaky in Arizona's Week 2 win. Even if Massie isn't starting Sunday, there's a good chance he's installed back on the right side in the next few weeks.

Cardinals announce RT Bobby Massie will be suspended the first two games of the season.

The suspension was originally reported to be of the three-game variety, so Massie likely had it reduced on appeal. Massie will be eligible to return Week 3 against the 49ers. Earl Watford is expected to start at right tackle while Massie is suspended.

NFL suspended Cardinals RT Bobby Massie three games for violating the league's substance-abuse policy.

Massie is appealing, but he likely just ceded right-tackle duties to first-rounder D.J. Humphries. Massie was sub-replacement last season, but wasn't a catastrophe opposite Jared Veldheer. He'll be eligible to return Week 4.

Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said the starting right tackle position is Bobby Massie's to lose.

Most assumed first-round pick D.J. Humphries would get the first crack, but Arians said that isn't the case. "It's not D.J.'s job," said Arians. "D.J.'s got to do a hell of a lot to ever get that job." Arians' commitment to Massie is a little surprising considering he's received negative grades from Pro Football Focus each of the last three seasons. The Cardinals are almost certain to let Massie walk when he hits free agency next offseason, so at the absolute latest Humphries will be the starter in 2016.

First-round pick D.J. Humphries and incumbent Bobby Massie will battle for the Cardinals' right tackle job.

Despite his lofty draft status, coach Bruce Arians isn't guaranteeing Humphries anything. "In the perfect world, he’d back up this year and learn how to play in the NFL behind two quality players," Arians said of Humphries. "There’s no need for him to jump out there and start for us, but he has a great future." Massie has a lot on the line in this competition, as he is entering his contract year.

Mike Jurecki of Fox Sports 910 said the Cardinals won't re-sign RT Bobby Massie after this season.

Arizona drafted Massie's replacement in D.J. Humphries. Massie has received negative grades from Pro Football Focus each of the last three seasons. It's possible Massie could get a look inside at guard in training camp.

The Arizona Republic wonders whether the Cardinals will be able to re-sign contract-year RT Bobby Massie.

Massie started all 17 games last year, including Arizona's playoff loss. He received poor marks in pass protection from Pro Football Focus. If he can take another step forward, Massie should get paid as a 26-year-old. The Cardinals may not be able to afford him after ponying up big free agent contracts to LT Jared Veldheer and LG Mike Iupati in back-to-back offseasons.

Bobby Massie started at right tackle during the Cardinals' preseason opener.

Massie played just 57 offensive snaps last season while struggling to learn coach Bruce Arians' offense, but clearly out-played Bradley Sowell during spring practice, and is now the favorite to begin the year at right tackle. Sowell will likely serve in a swing role.

The Cardinals' official website calls 2014 a make-or-break year for third-year RT Bobby Massie.

Massie was drafted by the old regime. He started all 16 games for Rod Graves and Ken Whisenhunt's 2012 Cardinals before playing just 57 offensive snaps for Steve Keim and Bruce Arians' group last season. The former fourth-round pick was considered a first-round sleeper leading up to the 2012 draft who was oozing with upside at 6'6/316 with vine-like 35-inch arms. Massie is the favorite to start over Bradley Sowell opposite LT Jared Veldheer.

Bobby Massie is currently leading the competition to be the Cardinals' starting right tackle and will enter training camp No. 1 on the depth chart.

Massie is competing with Bradley Sowell and Nate Potter for the gig after the team decided not to re-sign free agent Eric Winston. Massie played 57 offensive snaps across eight games last season, a year after starting all 16 games as a rookie. He gave up 13 sacks in 2012 and graded out as Pro Football Focus' No. 72 tackle. Arizona has also flirted with free agent RT Tyson Clabo.

The Cardinals will look at internal options to replace free agent RT Eric Winston.

Bobby Massie is the favorite. He only played 57 snaps last season but was a strong performer down the stretch in 2012. G Nate Potter and T Bradley Sowell are also candidates for the job. With the right guard position also up for grabs, the Cards could have as many as four new starters on their 2014 offensive line.

Cardinals OC Harold Goodwin said RT Bobby Massie is entering a "make-or-break year" in 2014.

With Eric Winston a free agent, Massie is the current in-house favorite to start at right tackle. He appeared in just eight games last season, but started all 16 games as a rookie in 2012. The Cardinals are expected to add depth to the right side of their offensive line in the draft, so Massie could end up serving as a swing tackle. Third-year LT Bradley Sowell will also compete with Massie in training camp.
