(Mathieu reportedly turned down a Pro Bowl invite before this year's game, but there were other safeties who outplayed him.)Mathieu's .1 million cap hit in 2018 is the largest for any safety, with Eric Berry the only other safety over million.
If Mathieu is on the roster on March 14, million of his 2019 salary will become guaranteed, essentially locking the Cardinals into another .1 million cap hit next season.
The Cardinals could designate Mathieu as a post-June 1 release and free up million in badly needed cap space this year while pushing .2 million in dead money onto their 2019 cap, when Arizona is set to have million or so in cap space. Matt Barkley, Blaine Gabbert and Drew Stanton are free agents.
The most logical move would be for the Cardinals to hand Mathieu a new deal before March 14, one that provides the 25-year-old some security over the next couple of seasons while decreasing his 2018 cap hit. The most qualified quarterback left on the roster is franchise icon Larry Fitzgerald, who finally completed his first pass in 2017 after three previous tries.
My boyfriend of about seven months planned a holiday vacation (to Morocco) without consulting me or considering me. So, I’m wondering: Does it matter how long a couple has been dating in terms of making solo vacation plans without consulting the other person?
It seems likely that the Cardinals will part ways with Jared Veldheer, who was disappointing at left tackle and hasn't been much better on the right side. Arizona also might cut Mike Iupati, although I suspect they'll hold onto one of their two expensive linemen by virtue of having so little behind them in depth. The Cardinals should try to bring back Alex Boone to form a competent guard duo.
