The Arizona Cardinals have been rumored to quite a bit of NFL running backs including C.J. Spiller and Adrian Peterson, but a few hours ago, Mike Jurecki of Fox Sports Arizona, said to keep an eye on a big back.

Besides AP, Cardinals need a big back. MT @rsheridan9: MJ, with Shady in Buffalo does Spiller to the Cardinals seem more likely?
That big back notion rules out the CJ Spiller since he is a not a big back, but it does make you wonder if the Cardinals could be targeting Ryan Matthews? Matthews is a bigger back who has struggled to stay healthy over his career, but has really came on as of late.
The 6′ foot 220 pound back out Fresno State could be a great one/two punch for the Cardinals teamed up with Andre Ellington. The Cardinals could have one of the best backfields in the game, and Matthews will likely not have that big of a market.
