Free Agency-Cardinals Capsule

By The Associated Press

ARIZONA CARDINALS (3-13)

UNRESTRICTED FREE AGENTS: G Mike Lupati, K Phil Dawson, LB Deone Bucannon, LB Josh Bynes, S Tre Boston, DE Benson Mayowa, LB Thurston Armbrister, DE Markus Golden, TE John Phillips, T Joe Barksdale, LB Gerald Hodges, FB Derrick Colemaan, G Oday Aboushi, DT Rodney Gunter, DE Zach Moor, DT Olsen Pierre, WR J.J. Nelson.

RESTRICTED FREE AGENTS: G John Wetzel.

NEEDS: After one of worst seasons in franchise history, Cardinals have plenty of holes to fill. Arizona certainly could use some help on offensive line after QB Josh Rosen spent good portion of rookie season running for his life. Cardinals got big boon when receiver Larry Fitzgerald decided to return for 16th season, but need some depth behind him and Christian Kirk. Could use some help with pass rush to complement Chandler Jones and Corey Peters. Arizona also needs someone to play alongside Patrick Peterson at cornerback and to fill hole left by Bucannon at linebacker.

AVAILABLE SALARY CAP SPACE (approximately): $35 million. Cardinals could be active in free agency, but key will be convincing players to join struggling team with rookie coach in Kliff Kingsbury.
