Cardinals and NFL stories to start the day.

With the Arizona Cardinals playing on Monday, it means there was a lot more to discuss on Tuesday. Catch up on the many stories there were.

Cardinals:

Cardinals Blogs | Keim: Extension meetings with agents upcoming
On this Tuesday morning, General Manager Steve Keim is flying out. It’s to visit Ohio State, he said during his appearance on the "Doug and Wolf" show on Arizona Sports 98.7, and it’s also to speak to agents about contract extensions. Now, Keim was careful not to mention who. It could be about a veteran like a Chris Johnson or Jermaine Gresham, guys that are on one-year deals. It could also be about one of the many defensive backs who are coming into free agency, like Justin Bethel or Rashad Johnson or Jerraud Powers. Maybe a combination, or someone else. But given the amount of potential free agents the Cardinals can have after the season, locking someone down seems prudent if a deal can be reached.

Cardinals Blogs | Arians explains his second-down pass

The Cardinals punted the ball back to the Ravens with two minutes to go Sunday after the Cards were called for intentional grounding on a second-down pass play.
