Cardinals should sign Martellus Bennett

The free-spirited veteran would provide the kind of no-nonsense blocking that Arizona sorely needed from its tight ends last season.

Former Cardinals wide receiver Michael Floyd pled guilty to a charge of second offense extreme DUI .15-.19 on Thursday while six other charges, including one of extreme DUI equal or greater than .20, were dropped. He was sentenced to 120 days in jail, of which he has to serve 24, more than $5,000 in fines and fees, an alcohol education program and 30 hours of community service. Floyd was arrested on Dec. 12 after he was found unconscious behind the wheel of his running SUV in Scottsdale. His BAC that night was .217.

Swearinger could use a change of scenery

The Cardinals gave D.J. Swearinger a shot at career redemption, and he changed his perception around the league. Now it's time for him to find a team where he can be an every-down safety.

Here's Cardinals QB Carson Palmer's statement in its entirety. The 37-year-old confirmed he will return for a 15th season in 2017: "My intent was to take some time after the season to get away and see where I was physically and mentally. On both fronts, I can say I'm ready to get back to work and prepare for the 2017 season. This is a phenomenal group with a very special opportunity in front of it. I know how rare that is and I couldn't be more excited to be a part of it."

Don't count out a quarterback being taken at No. 13 by the Cardinals. But the more likely pick here in our latest mock would be one of the nation's top inside linebackers.
