Chandler Jones Working On His Flaws

Arizona Cardinals All-Pro linebacker Chandler Jones has more sacks and forced fumbles than any defender since he entered the league in 2012, and his 96 sacks through eight seasons are four more than Bruce Smith, the all-time sacks leader, at the same point in his career. Jones was one of two players in NFL history in 2019 to have 19-plus sacks and eight-plus forced fumbles in a single season. He's been really good, but he wants to work on improving against the run, his eye placement and his hand work. Jones plans to spend more practice time with the defensive line so that he can get more comfortable playing between the tackles. The two-time All-Pro and member of the league's 2010s All-Decade team can certainly get to the QB, but he'll need to improve his tackling numbers in order to justify his high price in IDP leagues.

Patrick Peterson Hasn't Discussed Contract With Cardinals

Arizona Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson said he hasn't really had any contract talks with the team as he enters the final year of his current deal. "I feel I have a lot to prove," Peterson said. He also said he would love to stay with one team in his career and praised the organization. The 29-year-old was suspended for the first six games of 2019 and was a bit rusty upon his return. He finished with 53 tackles (46 solo), two interceptions, seven passes defensed and one forced fumble in his 10 games. The Cardinals have potential on defense with some playmakers in the middle of the field, but they'll need Peterson to return to his All-Pro form in order to make some noise in a loaded NFC West division.

Kyler Murray Tabbed As Breakout Candidate

Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray was recently touted by ESPN NFL analyst Marcus Spears as a breakout candidate in 2020, a sentiment that was echoed by former signal-caller Tim Hasselbeck. The sophomore finished the 2019 campaign with 3,722 yards, 20 touchdowns, and 12 interceptions, while also earning the offensive rookie of the year award. With the addition of former Houston Texan DeAndre Hopkins, who is arguably the second-best receiver in the league, along with the return of Larry Fitzgerald, the odds are favorable for the 22-year-old to smash expectations in addition to finishing as a top-five fantasy quarterback this season.

Cardinals Interested In Everson Griffen?

Free-agent defensive end Everson Griffen has had strong interest from multiple teams this offseason, with the Arizona Cardinals believed to be one of those teams. Griffen is staying patient and waiting for the right opportunity in this unique offseason affected by COVID-19. The 32-year-old veteran played in just 11 games in 2018 and took a leave of absence from the team due to mental-health issues, but he rebounded in 2019 with another Pro Bowl season in Minnesota (eight sacks, one interception). The four-time Pro Bowler proved he still has some gas left in the tank and could help an Arizona defense with plenty of holes in it. The Seahawks are another team interested in Griffen.

Andy Isabella The Likely Favorite For No. 4 Wideout

Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Andy Isabella, a second-round pick last year, is the likely favorite for the No. 4 job behind DeAndre Hopkins, Larry Fitzgerald and Christian Kirk, in the opinion of NFL.com's Gregg Rosenthal. The good news for Isabella is that head coach Kliff Kingsbury employs a lot of four-receiver sets. The bad news is that fellow second-year wideouts Hakeem Butler and KeeSean Johnson will be nipping at his heels if he starts out slow. Isabella caught just nine of 13 targets for 189 yards and two touchdowns in 15 games (one start) in his rookie season, with 88 of those yards coming on a long touchdown against San Francisco. He's more of a dynasty stash than redraft target.
