Cardinals drop a wide receiver, sign a linebacker

AP

Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said this week that he is not happy with the team’s wide receiver group and one member of it lost his job on Friday.

The team announced that they have waived wide receiver Marquis Bundy and signed linebacker Ryan Langford to take his place on the 90-man roster.

Bundy signed with the team as an undrafted free agent last year and spent most of the season on the practice squad before getting promoted to the active roster in November. He did not play in any games and had five catches for 73 yards in a pair of appearances this preseason.

Langford spent time with the Texans last summer before being cut as the team dropped down to 53 players.

  1. The weekly Bruce Arians soap opera continues. Has this guy ever done anything to make him such a maven?

  2. Well, I’m not sure that making a minor pair of preseason transactions makes Arians or any other coach a “maven.” Arians has won 66% of his games as a head coach and made the playoffs with a backup QB at the helm. That’s certainly better than most head coaches in the NFL.

  3. Arians is 1-1 in the playoffs with a healthy starting quarterback. They did lose another game with Ryan Lindley, their 4th stringer, but no team wins with their 4th stringer at the helm. Funnily enough, the same team that beat Arians also beat the Seahawks. Guess that means Rivera is a better coach than Carroll too.

  4. The Cards had a good defensive-minded draft this year and then picked Chad Williams in the third round. He’s got an aging, but still beast of a teammate in Larry Fitzgerald. Then there’s the speedy John Brown, hopefully healthy again. Additionally, he’ll be competing with Jaron Brown, Golden, and JJ Nelson for 2nd and 3rd.

    There’s a lot of depth at the 2nd and 3rd and 4th string WR positions. Arians likes to light fires by moving quickly and boldly.

    Arians is 1 for 3 in the Playoffs (if you include his interim HC position with the Colts then he’s 1 for 4).
    Pete Carroll is 10 for 17 in the Playoffs.

    Carroll has more Playoff games and wins than Arians, so in any argument Carroll is a better coach, but that doesn’t mean Arians is a bad coach himself. Give respect where respect is due.

    Long-time Cardinals fan.
