Arizona Cardinals News

Matthew McCrane, Waived by Browns

McCrane was waived by the Browns on Tuesday, Tom Withers of the Associated Press reports.

Analysis: McCrane's exit creates the roster spot for fellow kicker Chase McLaughlin, whom the Browns claimed off waivers Monday. Cody Parkey remains the favorite to open the 2021 season as Cleveland's kicker.

Ryan Becker, Agrees to deal with Falcons

Becker signed with the Falcons on Tuesday, Matt Haley of the team's official site reports.

Analysis: Becker failed to make the 53-man roster as an undrafted rookie with the Cardinals last season. The 23-year-old was mainly a blocking tight end in college, as he accrued just 16 receptions for 198 yards and five touchdowns over four seasons at SMU. He'll battle for a depth role in Atlanta.

Chase Edmonds, Gets competition in backfield

Edmonds has been joined in the Cardinals backfield by James Conner, whom the organization signed Tuesday, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports.

Analysis: After Kenyan Drake was allowed to explore free agency, eventually linking up with the Raiders, Edmonds was the highest profile holdover among Arizona's running backs before this acquisition. At 6-foot-1, 233 pounds, Conner has the stature of an early-down and short-yardage option, but Edmonds has two years of experience in coach Kliff Kingsbury's system, which has resulted in 4.8 YPC on 157 rushes, 65 catches on 88 targets and 10 total touchdowns in 29 games. The Cardinals still may add another RB during the upcoming draft, but Edmonds likely has the upper hand for more work between him and Conner considering the latter's injury history (he's played 50 of a possible 64 contests).

Larry Fitzgerald, Expected to retire

Cardinals executives expect Fitzgerald to retire, Mike Sando of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: The 37-year-old wideout is an unrestricted free agent, following a 2020 campaign with career lows for catches (54), yards (409) and touchdowns (one). The Cardinals' signing of A.J. Green was one hint at Fitzgerald retiring, and while it hasn't actually happened yet, an announcement could be coming at some point this spring/summer. It's also possible Fitzgerald surveys the landscape for opportunities with a different team, though he'd be unlikely to find any assurance of regular playing time.

Trent Sherfield, Heading to San Francisco

Sherfield is signing a one-year contract with the 49ers, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: The 49ers lost Kendrick Bourne to free agency, but signing Sherfield will serve to shore up depth at wideout behind Deebo Samuel (hamstring) and Brandon Aiyuk (ankle). Sherfield also established himself as a core special-teams contributor across three seasons with the Cardinals.
