Cheap Nike Arizona Cardinals Patrick Peterson Jersey 2020

There is a famous gif of Bruce Arians whipping his head around in surprise when a Authentic Patrick Peterson Jersey touchdown was taken off the board in the 2015 playoffs.

Authentic Devon Kennard Jersey channeled that reaction in the middle of March, when word leaked that the Cardinals were trading for superstar Authentic DeAndre Hopkins Jersey.

“To be honest, I couldn’t believe it,” said the veteran outside linebacker, who agreed to a deal with the Cardinals a few days later. “I was like, ‘How the heck did that happen?'”

The addition of Hopkins was the opening salvo in an encouraging start to the league year for Cardinals General Manager Steve Keim. Kennard, defensive tackle Authentic Jordan Phillips Jersey and inside linebacker Authentic DeVondre Campbell Jersey were subsequently added in free agency, as the roster’s four glaring needs were quickly filled with known quantities.

Pro Football Focus has the Cardinals atop their list of most improved teams this offseason, while several analysts at ESPN lauded Keim for his decisions.

“I feel very good (about the roster),” Cardinals owner Michael Bidwill said. “There’s obviously a lot more work to be done. The draft will be an important part of our addition of player talent. And then it always seems like, after the draft, there are always some late signings as we get closer to camp. So there are still a few more steps as we get closer, but I like on paper how it’s come together.”

Outside linebacker Authentic Chandler Jones Jersey arrived in Arizona heading into the 2016 season, when expectations were sky-high. The team didn’t live up to them that year and hasn’t had a winning season since, but his eagerness for 2020 is matching the outside vibe of raised expectations.

“I’m excited, honestly,” Jones said on ‘On The Fly’ with Lisa Matthews. “I believe in our front office and what they’re doing. As you can see, what we look like right now looks amazing, and we still have a whole draft ahead.”

The Cardinals began to find their bearings at the end of 2019, winning two of their final three games while playing efficiently on both sides of the ball. Coach Kliff Kingsbury proved he was not in over his head at the NFL level, and the pain of 2018 slowly shifted to hope moving forward.

“I think it’s a young team with a lot of opportunity,” Kennard said. “I like what coach Kingsbury is doing here, and I’m excited about the direction of the program, and what we’ll be able to accomplish this year.”

Even though the Cardinals only won five games a season ago, there is momentum because of the roster upgrades, the expected maturation of quarterback Authentic Kyler Murray Jersey and the return of key cogs like Authentic Larry Fitzgerald Jersey, Authentic D.J. Humphries Jersey and Authentic Kenyan Drake Jersey.

“We’re bringing all of these pieces together, and it’s an awesome opportunity for us, and it puts us in position to (have a winning season),” quarterback Authentic Brett Hundley Jersey said. “Keim is doing an awesome job bringing all these pieces together, but at the same time, we have to go out there and execute. We can have the best roster that looks good, but if we if don’t’ execute, there’s really nothing to it.”

It’s easy to get out over your skiis during the offseason, when optimism runs rampant. That’s why Hundley cautions that there are still obstacles, and that the process can take time.

“We want to win the Super Bowl,” Hundley said. “That’s everybody’s goal. But at the same time, we have to understand that it’s a young offense. It’s still a young coaching staff. It’s still a young mesh of players coming together, and we’re building. Rather than understanding we’re already there, we’re still building, and we’re trying to put everything together.”

The NFL’s new league year technically doesn’t begin until Wednesday when trades and free-agency signings become official, but the Cardinals have already filled two of their biggest needs this offseason in the past two days alone.

On Monday, word came about the blockbuster trade that sent running back David Johnson to the Texans in exchange for superstar wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins in a deal involving three draft picks. On Tuesday, the Cardinals signed Bills free-agent defensive tackle Authentic Jordan Phillips Jersey, according to NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports the deal for Phillips is worth $30 million over three years.

Also on Tuesday, the Cardinals announced they have offered an exclusive rights tender to right tackle Justin Murray and, as previously reported, tendered a one-year qualifying offer to restricted free agent kicker Zane Gonzalez.

Exclusive rights free agents – players with two years or fewer NFL experience – who are offered tenders such as Murray are essentially bound to their teams. They can’t negotiate with other teams and must sign the contract offer or sit out the season. Murray, the starter 12 games at right tackle last season, appeared in 14 games overall, and the Cardinals have said they’d be content if he returns as a started again in 2020.

Wide receiver, defensive tackle and right tackle were three key positions the Cardinals were targeting to upgrade the roster.

They were in search of a No.1 wideout who could play on the outside and be a regular target for second-year quarterback Kyler Murray. In sending Johnson, their second-round pick this year and a fourth-round pick in 2021 to Houston, the Cardinals stole one of the best receivers in the league by acquiring Hopkins, along with a fourth-round pick in 2020.

Hopkins, 27, is a three-time, first-team All-Pro whose 632 career receptions in his first seven seasons are tied with Antonio Brown for the second-most in NFL history over that span. He immediately lifts the Cardinals’ offense to greater heights and will pair with future Hall of Famer Larry Fitzgerald and third-year pro Christian Kirk to form an ideal three-wide receiver set.

In adding the 6-foot-6, 341-pound Phillips, the Cardinals also improved their situation on the defensive line, which had become perilous. Defensive tackle Robert Nkemdiche, the former first-round pick, was released last summer along with defensive end Darius Philon, a free-agent addition who was expected to be reliable starter.

Meanwhile, a group of four other defensive linemen led by Rodney Gunter are set to hit free agency. Arizona might try to bring one or some of them back, but Phillips, who is coming off a career season with the Bills, will slide into a starting role next to veteran nose tackle Corey Peters with second-year pro Zach Allen a likely starter at defensive end.

Phillips, originally a second-round pick out of Oklahoma by the Dolphins in 2015, set career highs in 2019 with 31 tackles, 9½ sacks, 13 tackles for loss and 16 quarterback hits. He hasn’t missed a game in the past three seasons and in 76 career games overall, has 113 tackles, 15 sacks and 27 tackles for loss.

He joined the Bills five weeks into the 2018 season after being placed on waivers by the Dolphins, for whom he played his first three and a half years. His signing won’t become official until Wednesday.

Other defensive linemen presently under contract with the Cardinals include nose tackle Authentic Miles Brown Jersey and ends Authentic Kylie Fitts Jersey, Authentic Michael Dogbe Jersey and Authentic Lyndon Johnson Jersey, who was signed to a futures deal that also won’t become official until Wednesday.

Besides Gunter, Arizona’s other defensive linemen set to hit free agency are Jonathan Bullard, Caraun Reid, Clinton McDonald and Zach Kerr.

With Hopkins and Phillips on board, the Cardinals likely won’t be targeting a receiver or defensive lineman with the No.8 overall pick in next month’s draft. They’ll be looking for help along the offensive line, outside and inside linebacker, and probably at safety and can use free agency and the draft to find it.

Meanwhile, the team also took steps to help ensure the return of running back Kenyan Drake by placing the transition tag on him on Monday. It allows the team to match any offer Drake may field on the open market, although it is Arizona’s hope to sign him to a multi-year deal, especially after trading away Johnson.
