Cardinals Offseason Update

The Arizona Cardinals staff and front office are the process of evaluating free agents and draft prospects. Plus an injury update inside.

STRATEGY AND PERSONNEL

The coaching staff and pro scouts are in the process of evaluating free agents now. But re-signing a couple of their own players should be the team's priority.

General manager Rod Graves continues to negotiate with the agent for defensive end Calais Campbell. If Campbell isn't signed to a multiyear deal, the team will use the franchise tag to restrict his options.

Cornerback Richard Marshall is also a priority. He became a starter midway through the year, and also played safety when Kerry Rhodes was injured.

MEDICAL WATCH

--RB Ryan Williams is progressing normally after missing all of last season with a patellar tendon tear. Williams probably won't participate in practices this spring but plans on being 100 percent by training camp.

--CB Greg Toler is running and expects to be fully recovered from a torn ACL by this summer. Toler could get some work in practices this spring and summer.

--RB Beanie Wells underwent arthroscopic knee surgery shortly after the season ended. It was a fairly minor procedure and Wells should be able to participate fully in practices this spring.
