The Arizona Cardinals will have a lot of decisions this offseason regarding personnel. They have 16 unrestricted free agents, including six starters.

Here is the list, per Mike Jurecki:

Unrestricted free agents (at least four years in the league):

  • Rashard Mendenhall, RB
  • Karlos Dansby, LB
  • Jeff King, TE
  • Jay Feely, K
  • Antoine Cason, CB
  • Andre Roberts, WR
  • Eric Winston, T
  • Dave Zastudil, P (re-signed for two seasons)
  • Matt Shaughnessy, OLB/DE
  • Javier Arenas, CB
  • Yeremiah Bell, S
  • Frostee Rucker, DL
  • Mike Gibson, C/G
  • Kory Sperry, TE
  • Bryan McCann, CB
  • Jim Dray, TE
Restricted free agents (three credited years in the league; if tendered by team, Cardinals may match any contract offer):
  • Jake Ballard, TE
  • Marcus Benard, OLB
  • Ronald Talley, DE
  • Alfonso Smith, RB

Exclusive rights free agents (less than three years in the NFL; if teams offers them tender, these players may not go elsewhere):

  • Alameda Ta'amu, DT
  • Everrette Thompson, DE

Who of these players do you expect to return? Who do you want to return? Who do you want not to return?
