Cardinals Unlikely To Trade For Or Add A Free Agent RB

Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic writes that the Cardinals “aren’t enamored with any of the backs available” and would only consider signing someone if they suffered another injury.

Somers makes a good point that any of the available options would only be a “stop gap” until Beanie Wells is able to return.

Arizona will move forward with William Powell, La’Rod Stephens-Howling, and Alfonso Smith.


ESPN’s Adam Schefter mentioned that Cardinals RB William Powell will “likely” get the first shot at replacing Ryan Williams, while appearing on SportsCenter.

“Unfamiliar name right now to some people, but he did lead the NFL in rushing this preseason, and there’s a buzz in the Cardinals’ organization about him,” said Schefter, via Rotoworld “The players believe he can do it. He’ll have to prove he can during the regular season. But there are some people in the Cardinals’ organization who believe Powell can get the job done for Arizona.”

LaRod Stephens-Howling should see some limited work as well, but Powell figures to be the better option for anyone considering him for their fantasy team.
