Free agent Tre Boston turned down an offer from the Cardinals.

Boston visited Arizona last month, but they were only willing to give him the veteran minimum. There hasn't been any market for safeties this offseason with Boston, Kenny Vaccaro, Mike Mitchell, and Eric Reid all still unsigned. Coming off a career year, 25-year-old Boston should resurface before training camp.

Raiders signed DE Frostee Rucker, formerly of the Cardinals, to a one-year contract.

Rucker turns 35 in September and spent the previous five seasons with the Cardinals. He's made 73 career starts with Arizona, Cleveland, and Cincinnati. Rucker started all 16 games last season in the desert, managing 1.5 sacks across 606 snaps while receiving plus marks from PFF for his run defense.

ESPN's Josina Anderson reports the Cardinals could revisit talks with free agent Bashaud Breeland in a "few weeks."

This conflicts a previous report that Arizona was out on Breeland after trading for Jamar Taylor. Breeland would give the Cardinals a legitimate starter opposite Patrick Peterson, but guaranteed money may be a hangup given his injury status. The Colts and Packers have also been linked to Breeland.

Free agent S Tre Boston is visiting the Cardinals.

Boston previously visited the Colts this month, which was his first of free agency despite a solid season with the Chargers last year. The safety market has been dead quiet. Boston played for new Cardinals coach Steve Wilks in Carolina from 2014-2016 and would be a solid third safety in the desert.
May 30 - 2:22 PM

Cardinals released CB Marcus Williams.

He lasted just a month on the roster, ostensibly becoming expendable when the Cardinals traded for Jamar Taylor. Williams, 27, intercepted six passes for the Jets in 2015, but his career has trended downward ever since. It's not a great sign that still-cornerback-needy Arizona gave up on him so quickly.
May 21 - 4:15 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport believes the Cardinals' trade for CB Jamar Taylor takes them out of the running for free agent CB Bashaud Breeland.

Breeland visited Arizona on Thursday but the Cardinals have since filled their cornerback void by adding Taylor in a trade with Cleveland. Rapoport suspects Breeland will land with the Colts, who he visited earlier this week. However, the signing may have to wait until Breeland is fully healthy. The former Redskin is still working back from a foot injury he suffered while on vacation in the Dominican Republic two months ago.
May 18 - 1:25 PM

Free agent CB Bashaud Breeland is visiting the Colts on Wednesday.

He'll visit the Cardinals on Thursday if he makes it out of Indy. Breeland inked a three-year, $24 million deal with the Panthers in March but needed a skin graft after cutting his foot on vacation, and the deal was voided after a failed physical. The Colts are in seriously dire need of corner help.
May 16 - 1:14 PM

Free agent WR Greg Little worked out for the Cardinals at their rookie minicamp.

A second-round pick by the Browns in 2011, Little has not appeared in a regular season game since 2014 and has not been on a roster since he was released at final cuts by the Bills in 2016. The Cardinals need some help at receiver, but Little would be an exceptionally optimistic dart throw.

Cardinal RB Elijhaa Penny will transition to fullback and tight end.

Penny gained 162 yards from scrimmage with two scores last season, an impressive feat for a second-year UDFA. Playing fullback and tight end on top of running back duties will give him a better shot to make the team out of camp, but it's a legitimate question mark whether the 6'2", 234-pound Penny can make a seamless transition as a primary blocker. Fourth-round pick Chase Edmonds will serve as David Johnson's backup.
May 4 - 12:27 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Browns are shopping the No. 4 pick.

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero adds Cleveland has had "a lot of conversations" about a trade. The fourth-overall pick is a potential move up spot for teams looking to draft a quarterback. The Browns would get multiple Day 2 picks if they trade down, but it may put them out of the range of Saquon Barkley and NC State DE Bradley Chubb.
Apr 25 - 7:09 PM's Ian Rapoport considers the Cardinals a "team to watch" when it comes to trading up for a quarterback.

Per Rapsheet, the Birds are "making a lot of noise about moving up." GM Steve Keim has spoke of the (obvious) need to find a franchise quarterback. The Cardinals, who are picking at No. 15, have average draft ammunition, with nine total picks, three of which are in the top 79. Moving up to the No. 5 or 6 spot might be too prohibitive, but Rotoworld's Josh Norris has the Cardinals landing UCLA's Josh Rosen at No. 10 in his latest mock draft.
Apr 24 - 3:37 PM

According to SI's Peter King, the Cardinals "don't like Baker Mayfield, they love him."

In fact, King has the Cardinals trading up from No. 15 to No. 5 to draft Mayfield in the spot currently owned by Denver. It would be a steep price for Arizona to pay, almost certainly including next year's first-round pick. To date, Mayfield has been the favorite to go to the Jets at No. 3 overall. King has the Jets passing on Mayfield in favor of UCLA QB Josh Rosen.

Cardinals coach Steve Wilks said LB Deone Bucannon will play weakside linebacker this season.

Bucannon will also call defensive plays from the huddle. Josh Bynes will start as Arizona's inside linebacker with Haason Reddick factoring in. The Cards are hoping for a bounce-back year from Bucannon as the 25-year-old finished with PFF's third-worst grade among inside linebackers last season. He'll be asked to play a similar role to how Thomas Davis was used in Wilks' base defense in Carolina.
Apr 19 - 5:26 PM

Cardinals head coach Steve Wilks said there's "no rush" to get Sam Bradford on the field full-time.

Bradford was limited in Tuesday's workout and it seems like that's the approach Wilks will take in minicamp moving forward. "We will continue to do the same with Sam," Wilks said. Bradford signed a one-year, $20 million contract with Arizona this offseason that could net him another $20 million if the team picks up his option in 2019. The Cardinals are fully expected to draft a quarterback in the coming weeks.
Apr 17 - 9:24 PM

Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield will visit the Cardinals.

It will be Mayfield's last visit before the draft. Mayfield has had to address size and immaturity concerns throughout the draft process but now seems destined to be a top-five pick. The Cardinals are well aware that Sam Bradford isn't a long-term fix and will likely target a quarterback early in the draft. They'll have to trade up to have any shot at Mayfield.
Apr 17 - 4:59 PM

Chiefs signed RB Kerwynn Williams, formerly of the Cardinals, to a one-year contract.

Williams started six games for the Cardinals last season but averaged just 3.6 yards per carry and one score over 130 touches. He'll compete with Spencer Ware, Charcandrick West, and Damien Williams for touches behind Kareem Hunt.
Apr 15 - 2:33 PM

The Cardinals, Ravens, Bills, and Packers have shown interest in free agent Dez Bryant.

All four teams Schefter lists have adequate cap space to sign Bryant. The Bills would be an interesting landing spot if only because Bryant would immediately become the focal point of a passing game that saw LeSean McCoy lead the team in both targets and receptions from the backfield last season. Joining the Packers sans Jordy Nelson would still give Bryant the best fantasy outlook for 2018.
Apr 14 - 12:47 PM

Free agent DE Benson Mayowa is visiting the Cardinals on Thursday.

Mayowa previously visited with the Redskins, Seahawks, Colts, and Jets. He led Dallas with six sacks in 2016 but only recorded one last season. The Cardinals have also hosted Connor Barwin among available edge rushers.
Apr 12 - 7:56 PM

Cardinals released C Max Tuerk.

Tuerk was the Chargers' third-round pick in 2016 but has played only one snap the past two seasons. Arizona signed hybrid guard/tackle Justin Pugh to a five-year, $45 million contract this offseason, but the team's interior line remains a looming question mark given the recent performance of all. A.Q. Shipley will continue to start at center.
Apr 12 - 4:27 PM

Free agent OLB Connor Barwin will visit the Cardinals this week.

Last month, Rams GM Les Snead said the team was attempting to re-sign Barwin, but nothing has happened to this point. Barwin recorded five sacks across 656 snaps last season.
