The Cardinals are taking a flyer on a veteran pass-rusher, filling in a line on the depth chart before the draft.

According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, the Cards are signing former Cowboys defensive end Benson Mayowa.
They worked him out recently, and had also taken a look at Connor Barwin.
By all appearances, it’s Dorsey’s call. But if owner Jimmy Haslam and/or the homeless guy who counsels Haslam catches a wild hair between now and Thursday, maybe Dorsey’s decision will be influenced by what the guy who owns the team wants.
Haslam, of course, should let Dorsey make the decision. And if Haslam begins to get the itch to chime in (he surely loves Baker Mayfield, for the same reasons Haslam loved Johnny Manziel), Haslam should resist scratching.
Until then, we’ll all be scratching our noggins as we try to figure out what the Browns will do.
Cardinals running back David Johnson returned 22 kickoffs as a rookie, gaining a total of 598 yards 鈥?including a 108-yard touchdown.
Actually that’s going to be one that I don’t think I’ll like that’s going to go away, Johnson said during a recent visit to the PFT PM podcast. Because, like you said, that’s one of the biggest things that helped me get to where I am in the NFL, in the league, is starting my staple in the league was special teams, kick returns. That starts the game, starts the Jaylon Smith Youth jersey half. Those are momentum swings, if you have someone who can change the field 鈥?the line of scrimmage of the field 鈥?that way, you know, it could be a huge momentum swing. So I feel like that should definitely stay as part of the NFL.
With the elimination of the kickoff becoming so inevitable that they should just get rid of it already, Johnson’s vote won’t matter. What will matter for young players trying to get noticed beyond the confines of offense and defense will be finding a way to contribute to whatever the league will put in place of the kickoff. Because something has to be put in place of the kickoff, or a team that is trailing by two or more scores late in the game will have no chance to narrow the gap via the recovery of an onside kick.
Sources say Jones has been in the loop for a couple of weeks as to the possibility Witten could leave for such a job.
