The Arizona Cardinals have a number of players with expiring contracts in 2021
Sure, we haven’t even made it to the 2020 season but there are 3 contracts the Arizona Cardinals should already think about extending or signing a new contract. The Cardinals have 20 contracts that expire after the 2020 season.
Not all of them are obvious and some of these guys won’t even make to the 53-man roster once they lace them up again in September. Some of these guys are going to have to play in a make it or break it year.
We’ve already gushed about the star Baker is becoming. He had a great showing in the 2020 Pro Bowl. This could be an annual event for him for years to come.
Baker’s rookie contract will be completed after this upcoming season. He should be the first offseason priority once the 2020 season ends.
2020 certainly could be a make or break it year for Gardeck. At times he looks like a steal and at times he sort of disappears. He is a great depth guy.
Gardeck usually gives it his all and then some. He’s not the most talented on the field but is usually one of the hardest working but just needs to be more consistent. That may eventually lead to more playing time and a bigger contract in 2021.
He came to the Cardinals late in the 2019 season and played well. He played in place of Charles Clay in the season finale in Los Angeles with 4 receptions for 76-yards and a very nice touchdown catch.
Arnold could be in the mix in 2020 behind Clay and Maxx Williams. He will be another make it or break it guy.
Right now he has a low base salary but as a second of third tight end on a team that doesn’t utilize the tight end as often as many other teams, he could fit right in at the right price.
