    Here is the injury


    In that game he had 6 rushes for 44 yards.

    On the season he had 147 attempts for 830 yards (5.65 ypc) and 4 tds.

    This included 16 for 104 against Chicago, 23 for 169 against Cincy, 30 for 209 against SF, 21 for 81 against Pitt and 19 for 101 against MN

    Some highlights from his rookie year

    I asked a while ago whether or not Edmonds is a better fit for this offense and nothing I’m seeing through two weeks is moving the needle toward DJ. He used to look like an oversized Johnny Rogers when he ran, now he looks like a guy who going to get cut to free up cap space.

    All I know of recent, I saw Kyler getting a sack in the backfield and DJ on the right hip of the RT who was giving adequate protection while the rusher was set free

    Too many times we have only 5 linemen blocking. I firmly we believe we need to run two tight end sets at least to make it appear we are going to run the ball.

    I agree. Rawls is hurt to often and Morris is long in the tooth.

    I don't think cutting him this, or next, year frees up cap space, though...

    His 2019 salary is already fully guaranteed.

    Half of his 2020 salary is already fully guaranteed ($5.1 million). If he is on the roster on the third day of the league year in 2019, his 2020 salary becomes fully guaranteed, which is almost a guarantee he will be because he will already have more than $10 million in guarantees coming and $9 million prorated salary cap.

    As of right now, $2.1 million of his 2021 is guaranteed for injury. If he is on the roster in March 2020, the injury guarantee is a full guarantee.

    As things stand, the only real year the Cardinals can get out of the contract is in 2020 and it wouldn’t save them much money.

    They will take a negative cap hit cutting or trading him in 2018 or 2019.

    His cap hit in 2018 is just more than $5 million, as it went up by $3 million because of the signing bonus proration. Getting out of his deal would mean a negative cap hit of more than $19 million.

    His cap hit in 2019 is up to $9.75 million, but cutting or trading him would mean a negative cap hit of more than $10 million.

    His cap hit in 2020 is $14.25 million. They can get out of his deal, but it saves only just more than $3 million.

    His cap hit in 2021 will be $12 million and cutting him would give the Cardinals $9 million in cap savings.

    The way it is structured, they cant cut him or trade him until 2021

    Very sad, I was sure they had found a Lynch replacement. After the injury, just not the same player at all - bizarre how that happens. I hope he made decent money and saved it for the amount of abuse he did to himself with his playing style.

    Amazing that the guy from Northern Iowa who was supposed to show so much heart has so little. See ya. Unfortunately, this is the weakest position in the draft. Fortunately, it is the easiest to replace in later rounds. Run Chase Edmonds and see what he can do

    Cut DJ next year. Cards have 80+ in cap space but they won’t get any big time free agents anyways. Use the rest to resign any if our own worthwhile free agents. Look how much dead cap Kiem was willing to take this year.

    Draft o-line and go with young cheap hungry rbs.

    Lions release C.J. Anderson


    CJ Anderson was released, any interest?

    Anderson had three 100-yard games in five games with the Rams last season, including the postseason, after signing off the street.
