TEMPE, Ariz. -- A day after his mentor was honored by the Professional Football Writers of America, Cardinals rookie safety Tyrann Mathieu was named to the PFWA's All-Rookie team at cornerback.

He was the only Cardinal rookie to be honored.

Also earning a national distinction Tuesday was Arizona general manager Steve Keim, who was named executive of the year by Pro Football Talk. Keim was praised for his offseason acquisitions of Carson Palmer, John Abraham and Eric Winston, as well as his deft draft which yielded Mathieu in the third round and Andre Ellington in the sixth.
