Cardinals 53 Man Roster: Offensive Edition

With Darren Urban compiling his potential roster next week, I figured now is the best chance to put mine out for you guys. Let us begin

Name Age Year
Carson Palmer 33 11
Drew Stanton 29 6
Caleb TerBush 23 R


This position is easy. For once we have a solid Quarterback leading the team, and a more than able backup to fill in just in case. What could be difficult to solidy however is that 3rd quarterback position, If we even carry three. The two guys vying for that position are Caleb TerBush and Ryan Lindley. I think Lindley has a future (let the boos commence), and I know very little about TerBush, but I have seen the guy throw, and I believe TerBush will usurp Lindley.

Name Age Year
Rashard Mendenhall 25 6
Ryan Williams 23 3
Stepfan Taylor 22 R
Andre Ellington 24 R


Again, easy to describe. Both Taylor and Ellington are to valuable to put on the practice squad since another team could very well scoop them up. They also provide a baby blanket with both Mendenhall and Williams injury history. Mendenhall is already the starter as Arians has said, but Williams spot isn't so safe with Taylor or Ellington looking at that position with hungry eyes.

Name Age Year
Larry Fitzgerald 29 10
Michael Floyd 23 2
Andre Roberts 25 4
Ryan Swope 22 R
LaRon Byrd 23 2
Robert Gill 29 R


The top 3 are locks at their positions. Swope is raising concern amongst the fans about his concussion concerns. Byrd has been called out about being inconsistent, and Gill blames his lack of speed at Fan Fest due to his hamstring. So the last three could very well switch around. Watch for Swope to be put on the Designated to Return IR if his concussion symptoms persist.

Name Age Year
Rob Housler 25 3
Jeff King 30 8
Jim Dray 26 4

Tight Ends:

The Cardinals keep the same three guys from last year. Dray will likely see more snaps this year because he fits Arians scheme more. DC Jefferson will hit Practice Squad (Watch the Cowboys), and knowing Kings history of minor injuries, could be promoted.

Name Age Year Position
Levi Brown 29 7 LT 1
Nate Potter 25 2 LT 2
Bobby Massie 23 2 RT 1
Jamaal Johnson-Webb 23 R RT 2
Johnathan Cooper 23 R LG 1/C 2
Senio Kelemete 23 2 LG 2
Lyle Sendlein 29 7 C 1
Daryn Colledge 31 8 RG 1
Earl Watford 23 R RG 2

Offensive Line:

This years offensive line looks on paper 10x's better than last seasons. The average age on this years line is 25, with a lot of young talent, albeit rather raw. Massie was top notch late last season, Potter filled in nicely when we finally replaced D'anthony Batiste.

So here's my Offensive side of the ball for 2013. Give your input, attack it, bash it, make amends. I'm curious as to who you see on that 53 man roster come September.
