Arizona Cardinals near bottom of wide receiver and tight end rankings

New, comments

The Arizona Cardinals rankings at wide receiver and tight end are among the worst in the NFL.

For the offseason, the main thing that comes out usually involves lists. It is a simple idea that draws much ire, debate and can create a viral article in no time.

Not to say they don’t offer much more than that, but the rankings usually bring in clicks through seeing where your team ranks and then spreading that if you like it and spreading it even more if you hate it.

Well, it will be clear that Arizona Cardinals fans will hate the Bleacher Report rankings of their wide receiver and tight end personnel, even though they may begrudgingly agree:

29. Arizona Cardinals

The Arizona Cardinals don’t have a lot of receiving talent. They have future Hall of Famer Larry Fitzgerald and not much else...

Things aren’t much more appealing at tight end. Jermaine Gresham was serviceable last season—he caught 33 passes for 322 yards—but he’s entering his ninth NFL season and has never been a prolific pass-catcher. The Cardinals don’t have a special tight end on their roster.

That’s the thing, the wide receiver room doesn’t offer a ton of proven talent, which isn’t a surprise to anyone, but they should offer some hope with the addition of Christian Kirk. However, the tight end room is one of, if not the worst in the NFL, which makes this ranking make a little more sense.

However, Brice Butler and J.J. Nelson can add a lot to this roster, but when you type those words out, you can see why the feeling on the Arizona Cardinals receiver personnel is so low.
