The Arizona Cardinals have a lot of key players from 2021 heading off into free agency. Among them are several pass-catchers at receiver and tight end.

The Arizona Cardinals know 2022 is a make-it-or-break-it year for both the team and the front office. Head coach Kliff Kingsbury’s seat has grown hotter given the team’s annual collapses, and of course, the late-season declines also fall on general manager Steve Keim.

At receiver and tight end, the Cardinals still have DeAndre Hopkins on the roster. Rondale Moore sits behind him, followed by Greg Dortch and Andy Isabella. While Hopkins is still a viable player, he’s coming off of an injury, and he will turn 30 by the time the 2022 season rolls around.

For (presumably) Kyler Murray to have a chance to lead the Cardinals back to the playoffs and embark on a deeper postseason run, the Cardinals need to address both positions. And they can do so in three ways.
