Arizona Cardinals News

Younghoe Koo, Likely staying with Falcons

Koo will be an exclusive-rights free agent, which "practically guarantees" he'll be back with the Falcons for 2021, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Analysis: An exclusive-rights "free agent" (ERFA) is any player who reaches the end of his contract with less than three accrued seasons in the NFL. These players don't actually have any negotiating power, as they can only play for their original team, so long as the team offers them a minimum salary tender. Koo's impressive performance the past two years ensures he'll get that tender, unless he receives a long-term extension first. Either way, he figures to be Atlanta's kicker in 2021, hoping to build on a 2020 campaign in which he converted 37 of 39 field-goal attempts and 33 of 36 PATs.

Drew Stanton, Sent back to practice squad

Stanton reverted back to Tampa Bay's practice squad Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

Analysis: Stanton was elevated to the Buccaneers' active roster for Sunday's Super Bowl against the Chiefs, and he unsurprisingly failed to take a snap.

Drew Stanton, Joins Bucs' active roster

Stanton was promoted to the team's active roster Saturday, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports.

Analysis: Stanton has not thrown an NFL pass since 2017, but he'll join the Bucs ahead of their Super Bowl matchup with the Chiefs. The veteran will essentially act as the super emergency quarterback come Sunday.

Trent Sherfield, Sticks mostly to special teams

Sherfield had five receptions (on seven targets) for 50 yards in 15 contests during the 2020 season. He also compiled nine tackles (six solo) and two fumble recoveries.

Analysis: As one of the Cardinals' core special teamers, Sherfield logged nearly three times as many snaps (221) in that realm than on offense (79). Considering he's a restricted free agent in the offseason, Arizona seems apt to bring back a cost-controlled player. If he does return, Sherfield likely will be hard-pressed to climb a receiving depth chart occupied by DeAndre Hopkins, Christian Kirk, KeeSean Johnson and Andy Isabella, even with Larry Fitzgerald (groin) still contemplating whether to come back or retire.

J.J. Nelson, Signs with Indy

Nelson has signed a reserve/future contract with the Colts.

Analysis: A 2015 fifth-round pick, Nelson spent his first four seasons with the Cardinals, catching 81 passes for 1,439 yards and 10 touchdowns in 56 regular-season games. He made just two appearances for the Raiders in 2019 and was then released by the 49ers in September 2020, so it won't be easy for the veteran speedster to re-establish himself in the NFL. Nelson ran a 4.28-second 40-yard dash back in 2015, but he's probably lost a step or two as he approaches his 29th birthday in April.
