    "You have to make the right decision for you and your future and I think 'Q' made a great decision," said Cardinals linebacker Karlos Dansby, who also recently changed agents in hopes of striking a new deal with the team.

    "He was being (attacked) in the media because of the decisions he was making through his representation. For him to change his representation like that is big, man. That says a lot about him."
    There was speculation, however, that he might report to today's workouts as a show of good faith.
    Cardinals quarterback Kurt Warner said. "You can't go out and dispute it all the time, but just thinking about a guy like 'Q,' the guy does everything right. He busts his butt, he's here every day, he's a great leader for us, and he just wants to be compensated fairly for what he's accomplished and what he brings to the table. None of us fault him for that. There's no way in our book that he should ever have a bad reputation because of that."


    • Herman Johnson Signs

      For most teams, the process of signing rookie draft picks won’t commence in earnest until next month.

      The Cardinals have joined the small group of teams that have accelerated the process, inking fifth-round offensive lineman Herman Johnson.

      The team announced the move earlier today.

      It’s a three-year deal for Johnson, who played college football LSU.


      • A Dub signs a extension

        The deal is worth $39 million, with $18.5 million guaranteed.
        According to's Len Pasquarelli, the new contract is actually a four-year extension, added to the one remaining season on Wilson's previous contract. And under some formulas used in characterizing contracts, Wilson will become the highest-paid safety in the league.
        Wilson was scheduled to make $4.75 million in 2009.

        Basically locks him up for the rest of his career and he will retire as a Cardinal, this averages out to about 7.9 mil a year


        • Ben Patrick suspended for the first four games for violating the substance abuse policy.

          I like him but with the logjam of guys at TE I wonder how this affects his spot on the roster


          • Well we have to cut a couple of them and that just makes the decision a bit easier if he can't play the 1st 4 games.

            Will Davis signs
            The Cardinals and sixth-round draft pick Will Davis have signed a three-year contract. Terms were not disclosed.

            Davis is the fourth member of the Cardinals' 2009 draft class to agree to contract terms. Also signed: LSU offensive lineman Herman Johnson (fifth-round, 167th overall), Pittsburgh running back LaRod Stephens-Howling (seventh-round, 240th overall), and Cincinnati guard Trevor Canfield (seventh-round, 254th overall).


            • Patrick probably just lost his spot on the team. There's already a lot of guys competing for those TE's spots and he was in the running. Being suspended for the first 4 games probably just dropped him out of the running.

                • Cardinals sign Toler

                  The Arizona Cardinals have signed fourth-round pick CB Greg Toler to a three-year, $1.5 million deal which includes a signing bonus of $316,000, a league source told


                  • Antrell Rolle's Blog

                    OTAs ended on June 11th and I was really impressed with the effort that the new guys were showing out there. I have never seen such high competition like that in OTAs before. Every player was going after it full speed every play.

                    Rookie CB Greg Toler has impressed me a lot too. He has great potential. I think he had five interceptions in OTAs which is a lot for a rookie. We sit down and talk all the time. I have told him how to defend certain passes and things, but he has exceptional athleticism, explosive speed, good ball skills and he is eager to learn.

                    We're looking forward to getting Anquan Boldin and Darnell Dockett back on the field in a Cardinals uniform because they're two of our top guys. We couldn't have made it to the Super Bowl without them, no doubt. We need them back. I'm not saying I agree or disagree with what they're doing. I just know they're doing what they think they need to do. We report to training camp on July 29th. I dread going to training camp but only because it forces me to be away from friends and family. It wears on your body and mind after a while, but it's necessary.


                    • Rashad Johnson signed a 3 year deal
                      Third-round selection Rashad Johnson, a free safety, signed a three-year contract Thursday, the sixth of the team’s eight picks to come under contract. As usual, the team did not disclose financial terms.

                      Johnson is expected to make an immediate impact on special teams. He may also find a way on to the field on defense, especially with the Cards’ possible use of four safety-schemes behind the versatility of starters Adrian Wilson and Antrel Rolle.

                      and if no one heard about it Dockett said this on his twitter the other day
                      I am happy to announce that after meeting with the team recently, I have full faith and confidence in the Cardinals organization and I am looking forward to a great season. From the first day of training camp and on, I will not let my contract issues distract me or my team from reaching our goals-. I also look forward to playing with my teammates and defending our NFC championship title and I appreciate the support I've received from all my fans this offseason. - WE WILL WIN THE NFC WEST

                        • Cody Brown Agrees to a 4 year deal

                          The Cardinals and second-round draft pick Cody Brown agreed to a four-year contract Tuesday, leaving just No. 1 selection Beanie Wells unsigned with the team scheduled to report to training camp Wednesday.

                          General manager Rod Graves said Monday night that negotiations were ongoing with Wells although there were still hurdles to overcome.


                          • Cards sign Beanie to 5 year deal
                            The Cardinals and their first-round pick, running back Chris “Beanie” Wells, agreed to a five-year contract late Friday night, with Wells already having arrived at training camp Saturday morning. Terms were not announced.

                            and here is the press conference he had this afternoon



                            • Adrian Wilson is a FA at the end of the year. Any word on an extension or is he looking like a Franchise tag type deal?

                                I can help you here. He already signed an extension. It was like 5 years $37 million?
