Day one of the 2019 NFL Free Agency tampering period brought the Arizona Cardinals Terrell Suggs.
What does day two hold before things can become officially official on Wednesday?
Here’s what we know:
The big name is C.J. Mosley and it appears the Cardinals are still on the list but likely near the bottom.
That’s because they can’t compete with the two top teams:
Jets made an aggressive push today for Ravens LB CJ Mosley, per sources.— Manish Mehta (@MMehtaNYDN) March 12, 2019
They had stiff competition from others, including the Colts.

And I’m told that even as they close on LB Anthony Barr, the Jets remain in the thick of the race for Ravens LB CJ Mosley. Not an either/or proposition. They could land both.— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) March 12, 2019
Rodger Saffold hasn’t been a name out there yet, but interest is coming in heavy from the Tennessee Titans and Minnesota Vikings, so if he really wants $10-12 million a year, it may be too much for the Cardinals.
However, there is an alternative:
Turner is younger and will likely be cheaper, but it could be difficult for the Cardinals as the Denver Broncos have re-engaged in talks with the lineman:
Broncos also re-started talks with versatile O-lineman Billy Turner today, although his status is now unclear given the agreement with RT Ja'Wuan James. #9sports— Mike Klis (@MikeKlis) March 12, 2019
Brandon Marshall seemed like a no brainer, but there is a lot of interest in the veteran linebacker:
The Cardinals could use an inside LB. They’re one of the 5 teams interested in Brandon Marshall I’m told. His former head coach Vance Joseph is the new DC there so they know him well. Also the Chargers, Ravens, Jets, Bengals are interested in Marshall I’m told.— James Palmer (@JamesPalmerTV) March 11, 2019
The question becomes, what is Marshall looking for, money, opportunity to win or a combination of both?
We’ll have the free agency day two updates as they come along.
