Arizona Cardinals believed Paxton Lynch was 'potentially a franchise quarterback'

There were conversations about him being their pick. There was talk leading up to the 2016 NFL Draft about whether the Arizona Cardinals would draft a quarterback, looking ahead to the time after Carson Palmer retires or is no longer with the team. Ultimately they did not, but they were prepared to. In fact, general manager Steve Keim told Fox Sports' Colin Cowherd the team considered taking Memphis QB Paxton Lynch in the first round. He never made it to the 29th pick, as the Denver Broncos traded up to acquire him. But Lynch was a possibility. "Paxton Lynch was certainly in the...

Leon Hall set to visit Giants as Bengals appear to have moved on

The Bengals' lack of interest in Leon Hall may open the door for a team like the Giants to sign him to a rather cheap deal in free agency now that the NFL Draft has passed. It's looking more and more like Leon Hall will not be re-signing with the Cincinnati Bengals. That was essentially assured when the Bengals spent a first-round pick on Houston corner William Jackson. That leaves the Bengals with a cornerback unit so deep Hall would actually end up being the sixth-best corner on the roster if he were to re-sign. That's probably something Hall isn't interested in, but the New York...

2016 NFL Mock Draft: Arizona Cardinals Select C Ryan Kelly at No. 29

With the No. 29 pick in the 2016 DBN Community NFL Mock Draft, the Arizona Cardinals select... Ryan Kelly, C, Alabama The selection and write-up were made by a2342432a: The biggest things you can see right from the beginning of the offseason for this Cardinals team is that Carson Palmer is getting old, the secondary has two strong points but still needs to fill out CB2 and SS, the pass rush needs an upgrade, and the OL needs replacements. The top corners didn't fall, the last QB worth grabbing in the first round was snagged by the Jets, and the pass rush was partly addressed by a trade...

2016 NFL Mock Draft: Arizona Cardinals select Vernon Butler

The Arizona Cardinals select Vernon Butler with the 29th pick in the POD Community Mock Draft. With the 29th pick in the Pride Of Detroit Community Mock Draft, the Arizona Cardinals select defensive tackle Vernon Butler. Edubbnaz is the acting general manager for the Cardinals. Below is the rationale for the pick. For a short period of time, I considered taking Paxton Lynch and letting him sit behind Carson Palmer for a season or two. He would fit in perfectly behind Palmer, and head coach Bruce Arians would have himself a very good quarterback project to work on. In the end, though, there...

Bengals 2016 strength of schedule looks easy, but that's deceiving right now

Teams like the Ravens and Cowboys simply staying healthy will lead to a big shift between how the SOS looks at the beginning and end of 2016. If the 2015 NFL season taught Bengals fans anything, it's that you can never put a lot of stock into the strength of schedule rankings during the offseason. Entering the 2015 season, the Bengals were projected to have one of the toughest schedules due in large part to the AFC North having a strong record overall in 2014 (Steelers, Ravens and Browns combined to go 28-20, a 58.3 winning percentage. However, those three teams ended up going 18-30...

49ers opponents 2016: Cardinals have few holes going into NFL Draft

The Cardinals didn't have a huge free agency period, but they didn't need one. The Arizona Cardinals looked like the best team in the NFL at various points last season. Quarterback Carson Palmer stood in the pocket, took the hard shots that many claimed he couldn't take, and led the Cardinals to victory more often than naught. Arizona's one big goal going into the season was to keep Palmer on the field and they did that time and time again. Value free agent signings, decent drafting and maybe just a bit of luck have led the Cardinals into contention. They have a roster with few real holes,...

Bruce Arians compares Paxton Lynch to Carson Palmer

Does this mean the Cardinals will select him in Round 1 of the NFL Draft? Some of the talk this offseason leading up to the 2016 NFL Draft has been how the Arizona Cardinals might select a quarterback, getting ready for when Carson Palmer is no longer playing. If we want to read into the words of Bruce Arians, maybe we have a clue as to who the Cardinals might take. Arians was asked about several of the quarterback prospects at the owners meetings last month. Josh Weinfuss for ESPN wrote about it on Thursday, noting the players to whom Arians compared Carson Wentz, Jared Goff and Paxton...
