The Arizona Cardinals have signed six players to future contracts with the club.
Defensive linemen Ricky Lumpkin and Everrette Thompson, linebackers Colin Parker and Tim Fugger and running back Fozzy Whittaker were all on the team's practice squad last season and have been re-signed for 2013. Offensive lineman Jeremiah Warren has been inked to a new contract.
Warren, a South Florida product, spent most of 2012 on the New England Patriots practice squad after signing as an undrafted free agent. He started 38 career games in college and was named to the All-Big East second-team in his senior season.
Red Birds still searching for their new head coach
Nothing new to report at this moment as Arizona looks for a new head coach after Ken Whisenhunt was fired on Dec. 31.
Cincinnati Bengals offensive coordinator Jay Gruden was the latest to interview (last Thursday). It was his first interview for an NFL head coaching position. Gruden, 45, has been the Bengals' offensive coordinator the last two seasons.
Now that the Broncos have been eliminated from the playoffs, will offensive coordinator Mike McCoy get a second interview? McCoy may be the leading candidate for the job at this time and with Denver out of the playoffs in shocking fashion, he has more free time to interview. It should be interesting to see what happens this coming week.
