Mike Garafolo of NFL Media reports that former Packers DC Dom Capers has been mentioned as a potential candidate for the Cardinals’ defensive coordinator position.
Garafolo adds that hiring Capers would be similar to the Rams’ blueprint of pairing Wade Phillips with Sean McVay.
On Wednesday, Cardinals GM Steve Keim confirmed that they’re looking for a veteran coordinator who could run a 3-4 defensive scheme.
Capers, 68, has worked for a number of teams of his NFL career including two head coaching stints with the Panthers and Texans. The Packers hired him as their defensive coordinator in 2009 and he spent the nine seasons in Green Bay in charge of their defense before being fired after the 2017 season.
Capers produced just one top-10 defense and that happened to be the year they won the Super Bowl.
We’ll have more regarding the Cardinals as the news is available.
