Arizona Cardinals cut Michael Floyd after DUI arrest

“There were a lot of factors, but it was a difficult decision for sure,” Cardinals owner told NFL.com, adding there was a consensus among himself, coach and cheap jerseys and general manager Steve Keim to release Floyd. “Deeply disappointed it didn’t work out. He was a 2012 first-round draft choice for us, a person we thought would eventually take Larry Fitzgerald’s position and be the No. 1 receiver for the future.”

With his rookie contract expiring, Floyd was set to reach free agency in March. All but eliminated from the playoff picture following last week’s loss at Miami, the Cardinals opted to pull the cord with three games remaining in a disappointing season.

Late in preseason action, quarterback Carson Palmer told the FOX broadcasting team that Brown’s training camp was as impressive as any player he’s ever seen during his 13-year career.

Palmer isn’t alone in his high esteem for the 26-year-old role player.

“Jaron always makes plays,” coach Bruce Arians jersey raved in August. “He’s very physical for a wideout. Great special teams player. Put in the right system, he could be a solid ‘3’ or ‘2.’ We never hesitate throwing him the ball in a clutch situation.”

Nkemdiche, selected 29th overall last week, signed his four-year contract with the Arizona Cardinals on Friday, the team announced. The defensive tackle out of Mississippi figures to play a key role in the Cardinals’ pass-rushing effort for years to come.

In addition to Nkemdiche, the Cardinals also signed two fifth-round picks — safety Marqui Christian and guard Cole Toner.

Last season, Jenkins started five games for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The ninth-year cornerback registered just 17 tackles for Tampa Bay in 2015. He has 244 tackles, 10 interceptions and two forced fumbles spanning 101 games with the Dallas Cowboys, Oakland Raiders and Buccaneers.

The new addition should provide Arizona some depth at cornerback opposite Patrick Peterson. The team lost Jerraud Powers to the Baltimore Ravens in free agency and is thin at the position.

Minnesota’s secondary bounced back in quite a way. Xavier Rhodes recorded two interceptions, including a 100-yard interception return for touchdown that wiped out a lengthy Arizona drive that had the Cardinals poised to retake the lead in the second. Trae Waynes, who was victimized repeatedly by various quarterback/receiver duos earlier in the season, blanketed whomever he covered. Sometimes it wasn’t enough — see Larry Fitzgerald’s incredible one-handed catch — but often, it forced Palmer to hold onto the ball longer and look elsewhere.

The Cardinals need to take a long look in the mirror and realize their strength, which lies in the backfield. Palmer still brings it from time to time, but he’s showing signs of his age (especially when under pressure) and it’s hampering Arizona’s offense. David Johnson broke 100 yards and scored a rushing touchdown, while also catching seven passes for 57 yards and another score, and Andre Ellington made a cameo on five carries for 21 yards, showing the bursts of speed that had Cardinals coaches and fans salivating just two seasons ago. That pairing can be lethal when turned to with volume. It’s hard to come back from a multiple-score deficit on the ground, but a slight shift to the run could have prevented Rhodes’ pick-six, caught on the goal line with Arizona deep in the red zone.
