Cardinals | Tony Jefferson playing well

Wed, 24 Sep 2014 21:27:22 -0700

Arizona Cardinals FS Tony Jefferson made a series of big plays in the Week 3 win against the San Francisco 49ers. He has replaced LB Kevin Minter in the nickel packages. In fact, Jefferson has played so well, FS Tyrann Mathieu (knee) might have a hard time getting his job back when healthy.

Cardinals | Bruce Arians talks up his defense

Thu, 24 Jul 2014 23:54:46 -0700

Arizona Cardinals LBs Kevin Minter and Larry Foote are expected to start next to each other at each inside linebacker spot in Arizona's 3-4 defense, replacing last year's starters, LBs Daryl Washington (suspended) and Karlos Dansby (Browns). Minter played one snap on defense as a rookie in 2013, but is expected to be an upgrade against the run from last year's interior duo. Foote, 34, enters his 13th year in the NFL, giving head coach Bruce Arians a contrasting pair inside. "You are going to miss Daryl's (Washington) speed, because he's going to correct his mistake with speed. Larry (Foote) is not going to make that mistake. Whether or not he can get there fast enough, that's (left) to be seen."

Cardinals | Kevin Minter making defensive calls

Mon, 02 Jun 2014 19:44:34 -0700

Arizona Cardinals LB Kevin Minter is making all the defensive calls, making sure players are lined up, etc. despite managing to play just one defensive snap last season.

Fantasy Tip: If Minter can remain in the starting lineup and function as a major cog in the team's defense, he might make for a nice fantasy sleeper in leagues which use individual defensive players (IDPs).

Cardinals | Plenty of depth at LB

Tue, 18 Jun 2013 19:21:07 -0700

Arizona Cardinals LB Lorenzo Alexander is expected to get his chance to start at right outside linebacker, as he tries to unseat LB O'Brien Schofield. LB Jasper Brinkley is viewed as the starting strong inside linebacker, but he'll be challenged by LB Kevin Minter. LB Karlos Dansby is penciled in as a starter for now, but LB Daryl Washington is suspended for the first four games, and it is uncertain where he'll fit in. LB Sam Acho is likely to start at left outside linebacker, but he likely needs to increase his production to remain as the starter.
