NFL Notes: Bruce Arians, Cardinals, Packers, Saints

Bruce Arians

Former Cardinals HC Bruce Arians tells Peter King of TheMMQB.com that he plans to still be around the game this summer and could pay a visit to his former assistant Jets HC Todd Bowles.

“Yes and no,” Arians said when asked if he’ll miss the game. “I will be in a training camp this summer. It might be the Jets [with friend and former assistant Todd Bowles]. It depends on who the Cardinals hire. I will be at training camp. I will miss the players, I will miss the coaches. The game, I think the game and me, we owe each other nothing. We’re even.”

Arians added that he’s hoping to get a media job and begin a career in television.

Hopefully I get to join your side, in the media,” Arians said. “I hope to continue some kind of a career in television, and start some new journey that gets me excited to be around people and stay in the game. I hope it works out. I’ll probably have to give a whole paycheck back for cussing all the time on the air, but I would love to do it.

Cardinals

Cardinals veteran WR Larry Fitzgerald said during an interview with Golf Channel that he wants to see what Arizona does with their head-coaching vacancy before making a decision whether to return for the 2018 season.

“I don’t have a head coach right now so there’s a lot going on,” Fitzgerald said. “I’m going to take some time to figure it out. Our owner and president Michael Bidwill and General Manager Steve Keim are out right now interviewing head coaches. I’m interested to see what’s going to happen. I’ll make a decision shortly after I would imagine.”

  • Howard Balzer reports that the Packers brought in WR Ja’Juan Story for a tryout this week.

Saints
