Authentic DeAndre Hopkins Jersey 2020 online

The NFL’s new league year officially arrived on Wednesday and the Cardinals – sort of – confirmed they have, indeed, acquired star wide receiver Cheap DeAndre Hopkins Jersey in a trade from the Houston Texans.

The league sent a memo to all teams on Tuesday, informing clubs they can’t actually make any official announcements regarding newly-acquired players until those players passed physicals, which are getting pushed back because of the coronavirus situation.

Nevertheless, the Cardinals, like most teams, are at least getting the word out by citing media reports as to their acquisitions. Here’s how the Cardinals did it via the team’s Twitter account:

Also on Wednesday, the Cardinals made their second free-agent addition by agreeing to terms with outside linebacker Cheap Devon Kennard Jersey, a Tempe native and former prep standout at Desert Vista High School. According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Kennard has agreed to a three-year deal.

Kennard was recently released by the Detroit Lions.

Kennard, 28, was originally a fifth-round pick out of USC by the Giants in 2014. He spent his first four NFL seasons with the Giants until signing a three-year deal as a free agent with the Lions. He had seven sacks each of the past two years with Detroit, finishing with 58 tackles, nine for losses and 15 quarterback hits last season.

In 83 career games, Kennard has registered 307 tackles, 23½ sacks, 41 tackles for loss and 51 quarterback hits.

Cheap Nike Elite Arizona Cardinals Byron Murphy Jersey 2019

When the New England Patriots selected former Arizona State wide receiver N’Keal Harry with the 32nd and final pick in the first round of the NFL draft, you could hear the groans emanating throughout the media room at the team’s Tempe training facility.

However, it was the exact opposite upstairs in the Cardinals’ draft war room, where the place broke open with sighs of relief.

As much as General Manager Steve Keim and head coach Kliff Kingsbury liked Harry — and they liked him a lot — they liked Washington cornerback Byron Murphy even more. When Harry was snatched up at the tail end of Round 1 on Thursday night, it meant Murphy was still available for the start of the second round on Friday.

The Cardinals were happy to use the 33rd overall pick on Murphy, whom they had rated as the sixth-best prospect in the entire draft. A handful of other top-rated prospects were also still available at the time, but the Cardinals stayed true to their draft board and selected the best player available.

“It’s sort of like that first pick,” Keim said, referring to using the No. 1 overall selection on former Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray. “I wish I had 33, 34 and 35 because there are some guys to get really excited about, there are a number of guys that we had first-round grades on.”

None of them were rated as high by the Cardinals as Murphy, the former Scottsdale Saguaro standout. After a redshirt season in 2016, he started all 20 games he appeared in for the Huskies over his final two seasons and totaled 74 tackles, seven interceptions, 27 passes defensed, seven tackles for loss along with a sack and two forced fumbles.

“He has everything you look for in a corner in our opinion — feet, movement skills, tremendous ball skills for a corner,” Keim said. “He’s a guy that gets his hands on a lot of balls. He’s been coached well by a friend of mine, Jimmy Lake, up there at the University of Washington. Local kid, so we had a chance to spend a lot of time with him.

“Love the passion, love the intensity. The fact the he was teammates in the past with two guys that we’re very high on in Christian Kirk and Budda Baker certainly went a long way. He certainly fits that mold.”

The Cardinals already have their two starters in Patrick Peterson and newcomer Robert Alford, but that doesn’t mean Murphy won’t try to force his way into the conversation and compete with Alford for the No. 2 corner position.

“Yes, sir, definitely,” Murphy said. “Yes, sir.”

And just exactly how does he plan to accomplish that?

“First, come in and ask questions from the vets, the people that have been here,” Murphy said. “Obviously, I’ve got to learn new things, so just come in and get ready to work. Coming in and competing against whoever. I’m trying to earn my spot as well. Just coming in, asking questions and learning from everyone and get it going.”
Although challenging Alford for the starting job across from Peterson is his primary mission, competing for the nickel cornerback role should be considered just as important because every NFL team uses packages that feature five or six defensive backs in a game at the same time. There are plenty of opportunities to make plays at nickel corner, specifically, and it’s a position where former Cardinals safety Tyrann Mathieu made a name for himself.
Kingsbury wasn’t prepared to say exactly where Murphy will fit in, only that the rookie can expect to play a bunch.

“Yeah, he’ll compete, there’s no doubt,” Kingsbury said. “He’s going to be in the rotation somewhere. He’s that type of playmaker. You see the production, the pass breakups. He always seems to get his hand on the football somehow and a dynamic talent in the slot, at corner. Like Steve mentioned, we had him rated very highly as a defensive staff and as an organization. So, we are thrilled to death to get him.”

The chance to play in his home state and join forces with former high school and college teammates such as Kirk and running back D.J. Foster along with Baker and linebacker Zeke Turner couldn’t have made Murphy any happier. It would have been nice to go in the first round, where nearly every draft prognosticator expected him to go, but ending up with the Cardinals made it all worthwhile.

“It’s a dream come true,” he said. “I’ve been growing up watching the Cardinals since I was a kid. It’s my hometown. I grew up in Tempe. Right now, I’m staying in Scottsdale. So, everywhere right now feels like home. This is a special moment. When I got my name called, I had my family there supporting me. I had my agent who has been supporting me this whole time.

“I just want to thank God for this opportunity. I know he had a plan for me, I just knew I had to stay confident in myself throughout this whole process. I want to definitely shout out to the Bidwill family, Steve Keim, and Coach Kingsbury to be able to play for the Cardinals. It’s exciting.”

Murphy smiled when told that Kingsbury said he should expect to play as a rookie in 2019, even though the team has a healthy supply of other cornerbacks in veteran Tramaine Brock Sr., Josh Shaw, Chris Jones, David Amerson, Deatrick Nichols, Jonathan Moxey, Brandon Williams and Ryan Pulley.

“Just motivation,” Murphy said. “I’m going to just come in ready to work with whatever role I take. I’m just going to go in, one hundred percent. If I come in and play right away, I’m just going to keep doing my all. Special teams or whatever it is, I’m going to do my all and just go from there.”

Murphy knew he would make it to the NFL someday. The dream began, he said, as a 6-year-old when he fell in love with the game. The Cardinals were always his favorite team and he counts Peterson, Mathieu and wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald among his favorite players.

He had hoped to be a first-round pick like Peterson and Fitzgerald and admits to getting a little emotional when that didn’t happen. A private talk with his agent helped get him through the ordeal, however, and as he paced around his family’s home, trying to blow off steam, he tried his best to keep a proper perspective on things.

“It was a lot of emotions going through my head. The main thing for me was staying positive,” he said. “I just knew my time was going to come and I just had to wait because I had my whole family there as well. My name didn’t get called and I just wanted to make sure that they didn’t have any of the little sad faces. I didn’t want to see anyone down because the opportunity was going to come.”

It came for Harry, his longtime friend, with the 32nd pick to New England. They went through the entire draft process together and were roommates up until the end.

“Me and N’Keal, we grew up together. We went to Marcos de Niza High School together,” Murphy said. “But it was emotional when he got picked. I look at him as a brother. So when he got picked, it was emotional for me. … It’s just a crazy experience that we’re here together and going through this together.”

Would he have preferred getting drafted 32nd instead of 33rd?

“Whatever, I would have been happy,” Murphy said. “Like I said, God had a plan for both of us.”

2019 Arizona Cardinals Jerseys Cheap For Sale Online

MONTERREY, Mexico — The box score will tell the basics — highlighting the pair of home runs Marcell Ozuna crushed, the go-ahead blast Matt Carpenter provided and the five-run seventh that ensured Mexican-born reliever Giovanny Gallegos of an appearance in Sunday’s 9-5 Cardinals victory over the Reds at Estadio de Beisbol Monterrey.

But this was a game — a weekend, actually — defined by the much less tangible.

Aside from playing in the Major League cities of Toronto and Montreal, the Cardinals had never taken their big-league product international before agreeing to participate in MLB’s 2019 Mexico Series. What awaited them in Monterrey was, to use the words of one player, “special.”

The crowds were festive, and the passion for the sport striking, inside a ballpark that sits at the foot of the iconic mountain known locally as Cerro de la Silla. Cardinals shirts and hats and jerseys weren’t hard to spot. Nor was the potential for long-lasting impact.

“I think any opportunity to expand the brand is always positive for the organization as a whole,” said general manager Michael Girsch, one of several front-office members to accompany the club to Mexico.

“When it comes to recruiting and signing talent out of Mexico, it’s something we’re always looking at pursuing. I have no idea how two games in Monterrey, Mexico improves that. It can’t hurt. But certainly, it’s a unique opportunity to spread the game, spread the brand and just experience something different.”

The Cardinals’ presence in Mexico had already been on the uptick. After years spent focusing on improving the infrastructure and personnel resources in the baseball talent-rich Dominican Republic and Venezuela, the Cardinals, about four years ago, shifted their attention to other markets. That included Mexico.

The organization hired longtime Mexican League player Ramon Garcia in 2015 to oversee scouting in a country that has produced 13 current and former Cardinals. It was under Garcia’s watch that the Cardinals recently signed reliever Jesus Cruz, who is pitching in Triple-A Memphis’ bullpen, and Ramon Urias, an infielder ranked as the team’s No. 25 prospect by MLB Pipeline.

This weekend further enhances the organizational outreach.

“It’s two days out of the entire year, so you have to put that in perspective a little bit,” assistant general manager Moises Rodriguez said. “But it’s great that we can bring our brand and bring our organization to Mexico to show that we support international initiatives by MLB. It can’t hurt.”

The exposure went beyond the on-field entertainment, too. Spanish-language broadcaster Polo Ascencio spent much of his weekend passing out team gear to the locals. Gallegos and Andrew Miller took time to play ball with children from a nearby orphanage.

It was an immersion experience for the visitors, but also a familiar one to the Spanish-speaking players who found the atmosphere feeling familiar. Several of them helped key Sunday’s win, too.

Ozuna, a native of the Dominican Republic, delivered a three-run homer to jump-start the offense and then padded the lead late with his fifth home run in seven games. Puerto Rican catcher Yadier Molina helped extend the seventh inning with a two-out hit, paving the way for Venezuelan-born Jose Martinez to pad the lead with a two-run, pinch-hit single.

ARLINGTON, Texas – Dak Prescott wasn’t in the lineup and neither was Ezekiel Elliott for the Cowboys, but then again, the Cardinals didn’t play Larry Fitzgerald or David Johnson (or Josh Rosen) either.

So, yes, it felt a little less like a dress rehearsal than perhaps a third preseason game normally would Sunday night at AT&T Stadium. But that didn’t make the five first-half turnovers forced by the starting defense and special teams mean any less to coach Steve Wilks, nor the 27-3 victory over the Cowboys.

By the time the game was over, the Cardinals (3-0) had forced eight turnovers. They are now a plus-15 in three preseason games, having turned it over only once themselves.

“Back when I first started, (getting turnovers) was the mantra we had in Chicago, and that’s stayed with me ever since,” Wilks said. “That’s a staple of our defense.”

Without Prescott or Elliott or most of the Dallas starting offense, caveats are necessary. Then again, the Cardinals were without their top three defensive tackles, and interestingly, spent the game almost exclusively in nickel, with two linebackers and three safeties.

And after a pair of muffed punts gave the Cards their first two turnovers, the defense – which had already forced eight turnovers in the first two preseason games – helped make the game a blowout.

Patrick Peterson had interception he returned 30 yards for a touchdown, and submarined Cowboys running back Rod Smith on a tackle to force another fumble. Safety Budda Baker stopped Dallas’ lone chance at first-half points with an end-zone interception.
“Honestly, this is what I envisioned, what I’ve been talking about all spring,” Peterson said. “This defense is really … set up for us to make plays, at any position.

“We’re flying around, playing together, communicating. It’s fun to see us.”
Wilks raved about his star cornerback.

“I can’t say enough about Patrick Peterson,” Wilks said. “The guy is playing lights out.”

The defense didn’t just do well getting the ball. The top goal of the week was stopping the run and, yes, the Cowboys were without Elliott and that excellent offensive line, but the Cards shut down Dallas with only 52 rush yards.

The Cardinals (3-0) needed the turnovers. Not only did Johnson and Fitzgerald not play, but quarterback Sam Bradford was in for only two series, completing just 1-of-4 passes for six yards and absorbing his first sack as a Cardinal.
“I was hoping he wasn’t hurt and he wasn’t,” Wilks said.

Rosen, nursing the right thumb injury suffered in practice last week, dressed but didn’t play. That meant Mike Glennon and Charles Kanoff got plenty of snaps, and the passing game never really did get untracked. It’s hard to figure out who you might want at receiver when there are only 52 total yards passing – although Wilks lamented multiple dropped passes.

The Cardinals also could only convert 2-of-13 third downs.

The running game did impress, however. Rookie Chase Edmonds had 55 yards on 11 carries starting in place of Johnson, and T.J. Logan – getting a ton of work after D.J. Foster looked to suffer a serious knee injury on a special teams play – gained 86 yards on only six carries, including a 59-yard touchdown run. The Cardinals rushed for 146 yards total.

The offensive imbalance didn’t worry the locker room. Said left tackle D.J. Humphries, “I know what we’re capable of.”

The Cardinals have a short week, hosting Denver in the final preseason game Thursday. They’ll only get one day of practice. The vast majority of the main players likely won’t see the field.

But Wilks emphasized that what the Cardinals showed Sunday – run-heavy on offense, and an opportunistic defense – was his team’s identity. It probably won’t be worth eight turnovers a game, but confidence is high.
