Cardinals GM is “hopeful” the team can get Honeybadger and Calais Campbell under contract

Cardinals Tyrann Mathieu is about to get paid

The Arizona Cardinals are one of my favorites to win it all this year, but if they want to stay on the top of their division they are going to need to keep their veterans locked up.  Both Tyrann Mathieu and Calais Campbell will need to get a contract extension and I would not be surprised to see them get a big pay day. Today Cardinals General Manager Steve Keim said that “there are always points in a negotiation when it’s more pressing than not” while providing an update of sorts on where things stand on the extension front.

“Hopeful, but people ask all the time whether I think we’re close or we’re not,” Keim said, via the team’s website. “I don’t think it’s fair for us or the player to make a comment because, really, I don’t know what close is anymore. We’ll just continue to stay aggressive, though. That’s the one thing I’ve said earlier: Whether it’s signing players, whether it’s readjusting guys who need to be signed for extensions, we’ll continue to stay aggressive and try to keep our foot on the gas pedal.”

I believe the Cardinals will find a way to get a deal worked out for their two stars. Both are playmakers and both help put the Cardinals in the driver’s seat for the 2016 season.
