Arizona Cardinals sign two more players – Darren Urban of AZCardinals.com
"Johnson and seventh-round pickGerald Christian, a tight end and the NFL’s “Mr. Irrelevant” for being the final pick in the draft, both signed their rookie deals Monday. The signings leave just first-round draft pick D.J. Humphriesunsigned from the Cardinals’ draft class. Humphries’ deal is not expected to be a complicated contract either and should be signed sooner rather than later."
Ifeanyi Momah finally finds his spot – Kyle Odegard of AZCardinals.com
"This is the path many envisioned for Momah coming out of Boston College in 2012. Originally, that didn’t include him.“My agent’s been telling me since I first came out that I should be a tight end, but I was kind of stubborn,” Momah said. “I was a receiver at heart.”Momah was a standout receiver at Elwood (New York) John Glenn High School. After a pedestrian start to his college career, he had eight catches for 171 yards in the first game of his senior season, but tore his ACL and missed the rest of the campaign. He applied for a sixth year of eligibility but was denied, and went undrafted. He had a pair of offseason stints with the Eagles, who allowed him to stay at the position, but neither opportunity resulted in a roster spot."
Arizona Cardinals QB situation in NFL’s bottom 10 – Adam Green of Arizona Sports
"While Palmer is no spring chicken at 35, it’s a bit unfair to say he cannot be counted on to stay healthy for 16 games. After all, he did not miss a single snap in 2013, and has generally proven to be one of the league’s more durable passers.As for what’s behind Palmer, Stanton proved to be a very capable replacement in nine games last season, throwing for 1,711 yards and seven touchdowns with five interceptions while keeping Arizona afloat and in the playoff race. And Thomas, who was drafted in the fourth round as a developmental prospect, proved to be exactly that."
