    Per ArizonaSports, Drake says there haven't been many discussions with the Cardinals about his contract.

    What do you want to do about the 2021 RB situation?

    I guess draft one in the 3rd or maybe 5th?

    Not that huge of a concern imo

    Any names in mind? You know this class a lot better than I do.

    I'd be very scared about relying on a 5th round guy alongside Edmonds. 3rd is still iffy. I feel this offense needs a true #1 guy.

    Would you look to a veteran at all in free agency, or just potentially roll the dice and say Edmonds/Eno Benjamin/a low draft pick or post-draft pickup is going to be the way we go?

    The offense needs a good interior OL. That’s what we should be building first & foremost. That will make the offense go.



    A 5th rounder is fine. I like Elijah Mitchell out of Louisiana Lafayette.


    I’d go Elijah/Chase/either Ward or Eno as the 3.

    Get a dominate O line and that will solve most of our running problems. Keep Chase and get a thumper RB who is fast enough

    Jones would cost about the same as Drake I think.

    I'm more inclined to draft for one personally. Trade back a few picks, pick up an extra 3rd. Something like that.

    Jones is probably the top RB in free agency. He's going to be a $8-$10 million dollar investment. I don't see how the team can afford him.

    I think Carlos Hyde should be considered by the team. He is a durable back who produces and would be complimented by Edmunds.

    On another note, it's being reported that Alshon Jefferies and Malik Jackson are going to be released by the Eagles. I think Jefferies can be had for half of what he made in Philly ($4.5 million) and being across from Hopkins should give him a good amount of single coverage.

    Jackson is probably better than anyone the team presently has on the interior of the Dline. You can probably get Jackson for $2-3 million. His salary with Philly was only $1 million.

    Alshon is so injury prone and I think kinda washed at this point. The only even somewhat good game he had was against an equally washed Peterson.

    Drake is way overpaid and my guess is he’s about to find that out. Wait to see who gets hung out in free agency and who goes late in the draft. They just need someone who hits the hole quickly and doesn’t dance. Add in a low fumble rate and you’ve got your back. I’d consider a trade down to take an early back but I doubt they’ll find a match.
