Recap of Cardinals' pressers, OTAs
By Josh Weinfuss
TEMPE, Ariz. -- Monday’s news conferences with Arizona Cardinals coach Bruce Arians and quarterback Carson Palmer revolved around one topic: the year-long suspension of linebacker Daryl Washington. Arians made it clear Monday was the last time he’d be talking about the player and the questions took advantage of it.
Here are a few notes from practice and the pressers:
• Arians said Monday would be the last time he would address Washington.
• Arians said Larry Foote -- right now a leading contender to replace Washington -- can be a two-down linebacker but not likely a three-down backer.
• Foote filled Washington’s role at inside linebacker alongside Kevin Minter.
• Rookie tight end Troy Niklas was back on the field Monday going through drills.
• Monday was Bobby Massie's day to work with the first-team offense.
