Arizona Cardinals jersey changes, salary info and other notes from the week.

Here are some things not discussed on the site this week.

Well, we have come to the end of another week and there was a lot of information worth discussing for the Arizona Cardinals. Since I wasn't able to get a post up about all of it, here are some tidbits from the week I either missed or couldn't get to.

Jersey numbers:

New outside linebacker Chandler Jones, who wore 95 with the New England Patriots, will not wear it here. Rodney Gunter already wears it, but Jones said from arrival he wanted a new number. Plus, wearing a linebacker number would make more sense. He will wear No. 55, which Sean Weatherspoon wore a season ago.

New offensive lineman Evan Mathis will wear the number he has throughout his career -- No. 69.


Mike Jurecki tweeted about Chris Johnson's new contract. His base salary is going to be $885,000. No word of his signing bonus and we know he can earn up to $3 million.

Salary cap:

With Chris Johnson's contract in the books, Arizona has a little more than $3.5 million in cap space remaining.

Free agency:

Ted Larsen had a visit with the Atlanta Falcons. Let's have him sign somewhere soon, right? It appears the Oakland Raiders never got past the initial interest level in Tony Jefferson.
