Cheap Authentic Nike Arizona Cardinals DeAndre Hopkins Jersey 2020

TEMPE, Ariz. — In Authentic DeAndre Hopkins Jersey, the Arizona Cardinals traded for one of the best receivers in football, a perennial All-Pro and the missing piece to their dynamic offense.

They also received the heir apparent to future Hall of Fame wide receiver Authentic Larry Fitzgerald Jersey.

And according to the numbers, Hopkins and Fitzgerald have been eerily similar through their first seven seasons, though Hopkins has a slight edge.

Both players were 27 when they entered their seventh season. Hopkins, who will turn 28 on June 6, has played in 110 games and has caught 632 passes for 8,602 yards and 54 touchdowns. When Fitzgerald reached his seventh season he had played in 108 games and had 613 catches for 8,204 and 65 touchdowns.

Here’s where it gets a little weird, though.

Both had 17 drops in their first seven seasons and a reception percentage of 60.9%. Hopkins had 1,038 targets and Fitzgerald had 1,007 despite Hopkins running 1,643 more routes. Hopkins averaged 13.61 yards per catch. Fitzgerald averaged 13.38. Fitzgerald’s longest catch was 78 yards. Hopkins’ was 76.

There are some categories, however, where Hopkins has distanced himself from Fitzgerald through their first seven seasons.

Hopkins had 2,058 yards after the catch. Fitzgerald had 1,341. Hopkins had 556 yards after first contact. Fitzgerald had 164. Hopkins caught 452 first downs. Fitzgerald caught 417.

But the biggest distinction in their first seven seasons is how they were used. Hopkins lined up in the slot in all 110 games to start his career, running 902 of his 4,091 routes out of the slot. Fitzgerald, who was primarily an outside receiver until 2013, lined up in the slot in only 63 games during his first seven seasons, running 449 routes out of that position. Hopkins caught 143 passes from the slot for 1,753 yards and eight touchdowns; Fitzgerald had 56 catches for 737 yards and seven touchdowns during his first seven seasons out of the slot.

During their first seven seasons, each receiver had five 1,000-yard years. Since 2001, Hopkins and Fitzgerald are ranked second and third, respectively, in total receiving yards through age 27. Calvin Johnson is first. They’re also in the top three — along with Johnson — in receptions and targets.

Both Hopkins and Fitzgerald were extremely durable in their first seven seasons. Hopkins missed two games and Fitzgerald missed four. But Fitzgerald’s usage — running 1,643 fewer routes — may have contributed to his longevity.

By re-signing for 2020, Fitzgerald is committed to playing in his 17th NFL season. If Hopkins can play that long and sustain his current production, he would be within striking distance of Hall of Famer Jerry Rice, whose 22,895 receiving yards are the most of all time.

Hopkins is averaging 1,228.8 yards per season. If he played 16 season, he’d be entering his 17th with 19,661, about 2.5 seasons away from passing Rice. Fitzgerald, on the other hand, will enter his 17th season with 17,083 yards, an average of 1,067.7 per season, leaving Fitzgerald about 5.5 seasons away from passing Rice.

When it comes to the all-time receptions record, if Hopkins were to play 17 seasons, averaging just more than 90 catches a season, as he has done through seven years, he’d need 105 catches in Year 17 to pass Rice. Fitzgerald still needs 171.

One receiver with Hall of Fame type numbers is a prize for any team. But two? That’s what the Cardinals have on their hands heading into the 2020 season.

A breakdown of the Arizona Cardinals’ 2019 free-agent signings.

Terrell Suggs, linebacker

The Cardinals will sign Suggs to a one-year deal worth up to $7 million, according to ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter. Here’s a closer look at the linebacker who spent the previous 16 seasons with the Baltimore Ravens:

What you need to know about the Arizona Cardinals:

» Team needs: OL, DL, LB, TE
» Tracker: Latest moves around NFL
» Full top 100 free-agent rankingInsider
What it means: The Cardinals found a veteran in the 36-year-old Suggs who can immediately establish himself as a stabilizing presence in the locker room after Arizona released veteran safety Antoine Bethea over the weekend. In Suggs, Arizona will also get a durable pass-rusher who, while he may end up on limited snap counts, has shown he’s still effective at getting to the quarterback. He had 26 sacks the last three seasons, including seven in 2018 and 11 in 2017.

What’s the risk: Suggs will turn 37 on Oct. 11, and even though he’s played all 16 games in 12 of his 16 seasons — and 15 in one and 13 in another — age will still be a concern with him this season. But the reward with Suggs is greater than the risk because of his recent production rushing the passer. However, if the Cardinals count on Suggs too much on defense, instead of relying on him to be part of the rotation, and his age finally catches up to him, then the Cardinals could see the risk sooner than the reward.

J.R. Sweezy, guard

The Cardinals will sign guard J.R. Sweezy to a two-year deal on Wednesday. Here’s a closer look at the guard who spent five of the previous seven seasons with the Seattle Seahawks:

What it means: The Cardinals found their replacement for Mike Iupati at left guard. Sweezy started 13 of his 15 games in 2018 at left guard and will give Arizona the final piece of its 2019 offensive line. Sweezy moved from right guard, where he played the majority of his career, to left guard before last season. He’s another veteran offensive line signing for Cardinals general manager Steve Keim, continuing a run that’s lasted most of Keim’s tenure as GM. In 2018, Sweezy allowed a career-low 19 hurries and 26 pressures, according to Pro Football Focus.

What’s the risk: Sweezy missed all of 2016 with a herniated disc, so his health would be a concern. When he’s healthy, Sweezy is durable. Another risk is that he turns 30 in April, so Sweezy may not be a long-term answer at left guard, leaving the Cardinals in the same situation either next year or in 2021.

Brett Hundley, quarterback

The Cardinals will sign quarterback Brett Hundley to a one-year deal on Wednesday. Here’s a closer look at the quarterback who spent last season with the Seahawks:

What it means: It’s too early to tell. It’ll all depend on who else the Cardinals have at quarterback next season. If it’s Josh Rosen, then Hundley and could help be part of Rosen’s support group along with Charles Kanoff. Rosen followed Hundley as UCLA’s starter, so the two have a history. If it’s, by chance, Kyler Murray, then Hundley may fit the type of athletic quarterback that new coach Kliff Kingsbury is looking for.

What’s the risk: There’s really not much risk at all, unless Hundley needs to play at length. But that’s more because he won’t be the everyday quarterback. He’s 3-6 as a starter, he’s thrown for nine touchdowns and 13 interceptions in his career and has 1,853 yards while tallying a 59.5 percent completion rate. While he’s been in the NFL since the Packers drafted him in the fifth round in 2015, Hundley doesn’t have much game experience, which could be a factor if the starter gets hurt.

Jordan Hicks, inside linebacker
The Cardinals will sign Hicks. Here’s a closer look at the linebacker who spent the previous four seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles:

What it means: Inside linebacker quickly became a position of need for Arizona’s defense after it released Josh Bynes and reports have linked the New York Giants and Tampa Bay Buccaneers to Deone Bucannon. So, Hicks fills a fairly large void in the Cardinals’ latest version of a 3-4. He’ll quickly be inserted into the starting lineup, likely alongside Haason Reddick, giving the Cardinals an athletic, dynamic and versatile pair of inside linebackers. Hicks also reunited Billy Davis, the Cardinals linebackers coach who was the Eagles’ defensive coordinator when Philadelphia drafted Hicks.

What’s the risk: The primary concern with Hicks is his durability. He missed nine games in 2017 with an Achilles injury and four games last season win a calf injury. As long as Hicks can stay healthy, he can the inside linebacker the Cardinals need him to be.

The Cardinals reached a deal to make Panthers defensive coordinator Steve Wilks their next head coach.

Wilks has agreed to terms on a four-year contract with a team option for a fifth, and he will be introduced at a news conference at noon on Tuesday.

The Cardinals had planned to conduct second interviews this week with Patriots linebackers coach Brian Flores and Eagles quarterbacks John DeFelippo. Wilks was impressive during a second interview with the team last Friday and is now the successor to Bruce Arians.

Wilks, 48, just completed his first year as the Panthers defensive coordinator, but has spent 11 seasons as an assistant in the NFL.

He was assistant head coach and secondary coach for the Panthers prior to being promoted to coordinator. Before that, he coached with the Bears and Chargers.

A native of Charlotte, N.C., Wilks is an ASU product – Appalachian State University –where he played defensive back. He coached at the high school level before moving to colleges, where he was an assistant for 11 years with various schools, including Notre Dame and Washington.

The Panthers finished in the top 10 in total defense in five of Wilks’ six seasons with the team. Last season, in Wilks’ first as defensive coordinator, the Panthers went from 21st overall in 2016 to seventh.

Wilks played defensive back at Appalachian State from 1987-91 and finished his career with 103 tackles, four interceptions and four blocked kicks. He attended training camp with the Seattle Seahawks in 1992 and played defensive back and wide receiver for the Charlotte Rage of the Arena Football League in 1993.

The three major football programs in Arizona now have African-American head coaches. Arizona State hired Herm Edwards, and Arizona recently filled its position with Kevin Sumlin.

The Cardinals’ coaching search lasted exactly three weeks, the longest of any NFL team this season. Seven other teams filled vacancies before the Cardinals did.

Wilks is highly regarded in the NFL and also interviewed for the Titans and Giants head coaching jobs. The Titans hired Mike Vrabel and the Giants are expected to hire Pat Shurmur.

It’s unknown who will be on Wilks’ staff. According to various reports, Wilks is interested in hiring DeFilippo as offensive coordinator.

Wilks replaced Sean McDermott as the Panthers defensive coordinator after McDermott became the Bills head coach.

Under Wilks, the Panthers blitzed more than they had in the past. They ranked seventh in the NFL in yardage allowed and were third with 50 sacks.

GLENDALE, Ariz. — It’s not necessarily an Einstein-esque revelation, but the word is out: The Arizona Cardinals struggle mightily to run the ball against good defenses.

Thursday night was the case study.

The Seattle Seahawks stacked the box against Adrian Peterson, who was coming off a career-high 37 carries for 159 yards, and slowed him nearly to a halt with 21 carries for 29 yards — the fewest yards he’s ever had in a game with at least 20 carries. Peterson said he felt he got the runs he wanted in the Cardinals’ 22-16 loss, but when he found holes, Peterson ran into Seattle linebacker Bobby Wagner more often than he wanted.

“Those [are] opportunities that I have to take more advantage of and beat the guy one-on-one to make something happen,” Peterson said.

It could’ve been a sign that Peterson was fatigued after having so many carries just four days earlier. Or it could’ve been a sign that the Cardinals have a hard time against strong front sevens.

Or it was both.

Peterson ran for 9 yards on 11 rushes against eight or more defenders in the box on Thursday night, according to ESPN Stats & Information. He ran for 105 yards on 25 carries against eight-man fronts against the 49ers.

The book on how to defend Peterson this season is being written. His last two games included his most and second-most runs against eight or more defenders in the box this season, according to ESPN Stats & Information. The difference is the talent level on those teams. Peterson ran through San Francisco’s defensive front with ease, but had only three runs of 5 yards or longer against the Seahawks.

Yo-Yo Adrian
The production of Adrian Peterson in his four games with the Cardinals:
DATE OPPONENT RUSHES YARDS AVG. LONG RESULT
10/15 Bucs 26 134 5.2 27 W
10/22 Rams 11 21 1.9 6 L
11/5 49ers 37 159 4.3 25 W
11/9 Seahawks 21 29 1.4 9 L

“It was some missed opportunities on my part,” Peterson said. “They did a great job defensively of containing us. We just really couldn’t get into a rhythm.”

Peterson was held to 21 yards on 11 carries in Week 7 in London against the Los Angeles Rams, who have one of the best defensive lines in the league. That game could have been looked at as the textbook way to slow Peterson, but there were too many other factors involved: travel, time change, practice conditions, weather.

Aside from being played on a short week, Thursday’s game was played in familiar surroundings on a familiar field in a familiar stadium.

And the Cardinals still couldn’t get the ground game going.

“It was hit or miss,” Arizona coach Bruce Arians said. “We knew it was going to be hard. Our good front, we didn’t block as well as we did last week. There were one or two that looked like they were going to come out of there, but they didn’t.”

And it’s just going to get harder from here for the Cardinals.

Left tackle D.J. Humphries might have a torn ACL, Arians said. Humphries injured his right knee in the first quarter. It was initially believed to be a sprained MCL, according to ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter, but Arians said after the game that “it looks like right now” to be an ACL injury. That would likely sideline Humphries for the rest of the season just as he and the rest of the offensive line were finding a rhythm.

“It’s just a shame,” Arians said. “Guy was playing fantastic. Second time in one year.”

Humphries suffered an MCL sprain in Week 1 and missed the next four games.

Without Humphries anchoring the offensive line, Arizona’s run game might lose the balance it sought with Peterson — and had against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and San Francisco 49ers, who have combined for two wins this season.
When the Cardinals’ run game struggles, so does the offense.

When the run game isn’t effective, the Cardinals have trouble controlling the game, keeping possession, sustaining drives and scoring, tight end Jermaine Gresham said. When it’s working, the run game can help open up passing plays such as Gresham’s 14-yard touchdown early in the second quarter.

Even though Arizona didn’t break any long runs — the longest was 9 yards — wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald believed the “body blows” against the Seahawks’ front were working.

But for the Cardinals’ run game to work against good defenses, they’ll have to continue doing one thing they did Thursday.

“The one thing I did like about it is that we stayed committed to the run game,” Fitzgerald said. “I felt like we stuck with it. We continued to pound it at them. We’ve got to continue to do that as the season goes on because when you get into those obvious passing situations against a team that has great pass-rushers like Seattle does, it makes it very difficult.”

The Cardinals finished with a losing record in 2016, but believe they can bounce back quickly and revert to contender status next season. Free agency will be key, as several of the team’s starters are scheduled to hit the open market. The Cardinals’ front office has plenty of decisions to make as free agency beckons on March 9. We’ll break down each position as it draws near.

Notable Free Agent Quarterbacks
Analysis: Palmer’s performance dipped in 2016 compared to his near-MVP campaign the season prior, but some of the statistical regression had to do with subpar play from the offensive line and wide receivers. He is one of the oldest quarterbacks in the NFL, but Palmer played well down the stretch and his arm strength didn’t noticeably decrease, which gives hope for 2017.
There was some anxiety as Palmer contemplated retirement earlier this offseason, but he’s back and hoping to lead the Cardinals on another playoff run. The team has gone 35-17-1 in Palmer’s tenure as the starting quarterback, and while the window is closing, he is the clear-cut best option at quarterback for 2017.
Stanton will enter the final year of his contract as the stable backup option in case of injury. He went 1-0 as a starter last season, helping the Cardinals beat the 49ers when Palmer was out with a concussion. Dysert’s re-signing is a formality and he will return in hopes of securing a roster spot.
The Cardinals still need a quarterback of the future, but free agency almost certainly will not be the avenue to find one. Between Palmer and Stanton, there is more than $28 million of cap money already tied up at the position, and it’s not tenable to add another high-priced veteran to the mix.
The draft is the only realistic option if the Cardinals want to add a player to possibly replace Palmer in 2018.

This time of year emphasizes balancing act for Cardinals GM

Cardinals General Manager Steve Keim talks with safety Tyrann Mathieu before a game.
No talk of windows resonates, because in the end, Steve Keim has every intention of the Cardinals competing for a postseason spot each year.
That doesn’t mean the general manager is unaware of the team’s circumstances as they build toward 2017.
The quarterback and top wide receiver both considered retirement, however briefly. The coach too is closer to the end of his career as well – he’s more than once mentioned how he and the QB will ride off into the sunset together.
But as Keim and all the Cardinals’ front office and coaches head to Indianapolis this week for the annual Scouting combine, with free agency waiting just on the other side, there is a thin line to be walked. Keim, not that much older than Carson Palmer, is nowhere near the end of his career. There is a short-term future to consider, but also a long-term view. There is a need to push for a deep playoff run, the one the Cardinals expected to have in 2016, but a need to avoid doing so at the cost of 2018 and beyond.
Walking that tightrope “is kind of an instinct,” Keim said. “It’s so simplistic in my mind.”
The biggest part comes this time of year, readjusting the roster with new contracts for both current Cardinals and those potentially to arrive as free agents. The former has brought with it difficult choices. Linebacker Chandler Jones already has a franchise tag. Defensive lineman Calais Campbell and safety Tony Jefferson are wanted back, but most believe both players will be among the top – if not the top – available players at their position in free agency.
Keim says with every player, he has that simple methodology.
“For example, do I feel like we can live without Tyrann Mathieu long-term?” Keim said. “If I think we can, then we can take a chance and move on from him. But if he is an essential piece to this puzzle, and is a key piece to this moving forward, then we have to do what we can to keep him.”
Keim doesn’t specifically talk about any free agents to be, including Campbell and Jefferson. But he notes that it can be difficult to fight the emotional attachment a franchise has built with a player against the money a player might seek.
The salary cap is a big part of it – there is only so much to go around. Teams are savvy enough to make that work in a single year of course, but again, at what cost? When Keim took his post in 2013, one of his goals was to clear out the dead cap space the team had accrued. Now, the Cardinals usually have little dead cap money in a given season.
“You can’t mortgage the future to the point where, when I look in the mirror saying to myself, ‘Is this the right thing (financially) health-wise long-term for the organization?” Keim said. “Meaning, am I going to be sitting here in two years wishing we didn’t make this deal because it came crashing down?’
“Now all of a sudden, the player isn’t the player he once was and we have incurred a lot of dead money and it’s affecting us moving forward for a long time. We just can’t put ourselves in that predicament. As hard as some of these decisions are to make, you have to be true to yourself and to the organization, first and foremost.”
It makes a difference. No one will argue the Cardinals are better off without, for example, Campbell, if he were to leave. This is exactly the time of year that underscores the importance of the draft – not only because the top players are working out in Indy, but also because they are needed to replace high-priced free agents that leave.
“You have to develop your own players, you have to keep some guys on lower salaries, you have to pay your core players,” Keim said. “And you know what, quite frankly, we have to do a better job. I’m proud of a lot of our draft picks, but I can also tell you where we have made mistakes. That’s what the great challenge is.”
