Cardinals exercise fifth-year option on Patrick Peterson

There are some teams with difficult choices to make when it comes to exercising the fifth-year option on their 2011 first-round pick, but the Cardinals aren’t one of them.

Report: Cardinals “sweet” on Derek Carr and A.J. McCarron

It looks like the Arizona Cardinals might have their eyes set on drafting either A.J. McCarron or Derek Carr. Arizona is sweet on a couple of quarterbacks, Derek Carr and A.J. McCarron, who are first- and second-round possibilities. With coach Bruce Arians’ love of the deep ball, McCarron in round two seems a bit of a reach. I will say this about McCarron: He doesn’t have a...
