Suspension could affect Cards' tight end situation

The Cardinals' situation at tight end could get more interesting as the regular season approaches. A four-game suspension for Ben Patrick, reported by Adam Caplan of scout.com, could create opportunities for other tight ends.

Arizona is all but holding open tryouts at the position. Stephen Spach is coming off serious knee surgery. Leonard Pope arguably projects as the likely starter if Spach isn't 100 percent, although former Rams Anthony Becht and Dominique Byrd are also getting a look.
