Richard Morin Arizona Republic Published 8:58 PM EDT Apr 26, 2019 Archie Bradley sat down in his locker after taking part in his normal, pre-game workout routine. But the former quarterback prospect for the Oklahoma Sooners had a bit more pep in his step on Friday. Bradley, who was wearing an Oklahoma Sooners long-sleeve shirt, was more than happy to discuss the Arizona Cardinals drafting Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. “I’m pumped,” Bradley said. “Obviously I’m a huge Sooners guy, so to have Baker (Mayfield) go (No. 1) last year and Kyler go this year I think is a testament to everything going on at that university — from the athletics to the academics and everything. “I think (Kyler is) the quarterback of the future.” Although Bradley never played college football at Oklahoma — he signed with the Diamondbacks out of high school instead — Bradley … [Read more...] about Arizona Diamondbacks’ Archie Bradley: Kyler Murray is ‘quarterback of the future’ for Arizona Cardinals

Bob McManaman Arizona Republic Published 10:22 AM EST Jan 8, 2019 The Arizona Cardinals are interviewing Kliff Kingsbury for their open head coaching position on Tuesday, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports. He tweeted that the Cardinals have "had sincere interest in the innovator for a while." Kingsbury is USC's offensive coordinator and was previously the head coach at Texas Tech. He had been denied permission to meet with NFL teams by USC, where he has been employed since early December as the Trojans’ offensive coordinator. In what was believed to be an unprecedented move by USC Athletic Director Lynn Swann, Kingsbury wasn’t allowed to talk to either the Cardinals or the Jets, who each had sought permission to interview him for their vacant head-coaching positions.

Bob McManaman Arizona Republic Published 1:40 PM EST Jan 1, 2019 With their last-second 27-24 loss Sunday in Seattle, the Cardinals’ 13th defeat of the season turned out to bring them some luck. It guaranteed them the No. 1 pick in next year’s NFL draft, which will be held April 25-27 in Nashville. “If I look back and think to myself that you’re the general manager with the No. 1 pick in the draft, I mean, it’s embarrassing as hell,” General Manager Steve Keim said Monday. “But I promise you in April we’re not going to feel that way because we’re going to have that first pick in every round, we’re going to have the No. 1 (pick) and as of right now, based on the formula, we're probably going to have anywhere from nine to 10 picks when you add in the compensatories.” The Cardinals haven’t had the No. 1 pick since 1958 when they selected Rice quarterback King Hill, who went on to have far more success in … [Read more...] about 2019 NFL draft: Options for Arizona Cardinals with No. 1 pick
