Arizona Cardinals pay D.J. Humphries, give themselves a bunch of protection moving forward

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports The numbers are out on the D.J. Humphries contract extension from the Arizona Cardinals. It’s not what any of us expected at all, instead it’s basically a one-year deal with two one-year deals tacked on after. The Arizona Cardinals spent about $3 million more than we expected in the immediate, getting $12.8 million this year on the cap. Yet, after that the Arizona Cardinals are off the hook. The Cardinals basically got Humphries on a franchise tag this year, less $4 million and then baked in protection moving forward. The Cardinals will pay Humphries...

Humph’s Day

Humph’s Day

Joe Maiorana-USA TODAY Sports How D.J. Humphries’ contract should be viewed in light of a fanbase who was somehow...disappointed (?) that their former first round pick got extended. Happy Thursday to all across the Red Sea! I wrote this article yesterday, on Wednesday which to some (insert Geico camel) is also known as “hump day”. Fitting, as the Cardinals had a “Hump(h)” of their own that made a splash this past week. On Monday afternoon, the Arizona Cardinals made their first post-Fitz free agency splash by signing D.J. Humphries to a 3-year, $45 million deal with $29...

This led Arizona to a 5-10-1 record […] The post What would a perfect offseason look like for the Arizona Cardinals? appeared first on ClutchPoints.

Two former first round picks that could use a change of scenery and fit the Arizona Cardinals

Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports The Arizona Cardinals have had some success by trading for or picking up castoffs from other teams. While this is not a long-term solution it can be a nice fix for a team that is looking to add talent while not breaking the bank right now. That means the Cards may be able to take advantage of teams looking to move on from their own draft picks early. There are two that the Arizona Cardinals may be able to look at that could offer them some help in 2020 and maybe beyond.

Wednesday Night open thread: Arizona Cardinals free agent priorities

Photo by Jacob Kupferman/ Happy Wednesday night one and all. The Arizona Cardinals have started their quest to continue to fix things after their downfall over the last several years. It started with the re-signing of their own free agents and now they turn their gaze towards the rest of the league. From people I trust, it sounds like the Cardinals were in on Greg Olsen, hoping to have quite the duo of veteran, two-way tight ends. Olsen (35 in a month) recently signed with the Seahawks for up to $7 million with $5.5 million guaranteed. That is an interesting try in the least. While...

Cardinals Wide Receiver Outlook: Fitzgerald, Kirk, and Lamb?

Photo by Kevin Abele/Icon Sportswire via The Cardinals’ 2019 draft class should have a bigger impact in 2020 The Cardinals’ wide receiver corps is highlighted by the return of Larry Fitzgerald. The soon-to-be 37-year-old receiver finished the 2019 season with 75 receptions, 804 receiving yards, and four touchdowns. Fitzgerald continues to defy the odds at his age and remains the most consistent player on the team. He might be the safety blanket for Kyler Murray but the top receiver for the Cardinals last season was Christian Kirk. Kirk was a 2018 second-round pick and is expected...
