The Arizona Cardinals are making a push for the Super Bowl, and they are not going to back down from no one. Today they traded their starting offensive guard Jonathan Cooper to the Patriots for Chandler Jones, and they seem to have already had a replacement in mind for him.
The Cardinals hosted veteran guard Evan Mathis who won a Super Bowl last year with the Broncos in for a visit. According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Media Insiders, the Cardinals offered him a 2 year contract.
One reason the #AZCardinals felt comfortable trading an OL today? Source said Evan Mathis visited them today & they offered a 2-year deal.
