Cardinals retain slot receiver Early Doucet


ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the Cardinals have agreed to terms on a deal that will keep free agent receiver Early Doucet in Arizona.

Statistically, Doucet set career highs across the board in 2011 while working in the slot between Larry Fitzgerald and Andre Roberts. Though Roberts was technically the “starter” and Doucet played only in three-receiver sets, Doucet was the more productive player.

The No. 95 overall free agent on the PFT Hot 100, Doucet figures to play the same role in 2012.

  1. One more decent receiver off the FA board for the Bills to pick up…..Average receiver hopefully not receiving Manningham or Meachem-esque money….

  2. Good to hear Early has re-signed with Cards. Although he’s been injury prone, when healthy he’s a solid receiver. Now, they just need to get better play from the QB position and the Cards will be contending again.

  3. Good to have Early back. Had injury problems early in his career. Proved to be a Beast in Play- off mode. Smart move by the Cards to let him see what his value was in free agency and then get him resigned at a reasonable price considering the Cards don’t have much room in the Salary Cap.

  4. Dude’s a stiff. Hands of stone, doesn’t make the clutch play. Horrible re-signing. Cards better find a legit #2 someplace before September, and damn sure better take a tackle in the 1st round.

  5. This is thrilling news !! Tremendous !! Fantastic !!
    The Cardinals’ free agency movement is stratospheric !! My head is literally spinning from all the excitement the Cards have generated in improving their roster from lasts year !!
    There’s no doubt the Cards will only go up, up, up !! Biggest splash in free agency by any team, by far !!
    What can you say ? The Bidwills have done it again !!!!!!!!
