TMZ got a hold of some video of NFL defensive end John Abraham punching another man at a strip club.
Cardinals defensive back Tyrann Mathieu locked himself inside of a car for a new ad that PETA just released in order to help spread awareness so people can see just how dangerous it is for animals to be left inside of a car during the summer.
“I seriously couldn’t imagine, leaving my dog in a car like this,” Mathieu said. “If you’re going to make a dog a part of your family, then make him a part of your family. Don’t treat him like you wouldn’t someone you cared about or someone you loved.”
Props to Mathieu for lasting eight minutes.
Former Wisconsin running back Melvin Gordon met with the Arizona Cardinals on Monday, per Rand Getlin of Yahoo! Sports.
RB Melvin Gordon is meeting with the #AZCardinals today. Lot of talk about Adrian Peterson. Gordon a younger, cheaper option.

Gordon would be a nice addition alongside Andre Ellington.
Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com says the Cleveland Browns attempted to trade for Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald prior to his contract getting re-done.

I’m sure Fitzgerald is relieved the trade never went down.
There was a report last week that the Arizona Cardinals would be interested in trading a high draft pick for Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson.
Peter King of The MMQB says the Cardinals aren’t interested in acquiring Peterson because of his salary.
There’s some noise out there that Adrian Peterson could be traded to Arizona. Well, I guess he could, at some point. But the money would be a major problem. I spoke with a reliable Cardinals source Sunday night, and the three years and $45 million left on Peterson’s contract is an absolute non-starter with the Cards. “We haven’t had contact with the Vikings about it, to the best of my knowledge,” the source said. “And there is no way we could live with those numbers. We just got Larry Fitzgerald’s contract under control. No way we’d add that salary.” Two other detrimental factors: Arizona loves the running-back crop in this draft, and the Cardinals, with the 23rd and 55th overall picks, would be able to get a very good one. And Peterson turns 30 on Saturday. Not an optimum age for a back, even one who got so little wear on his tires in 2014.

NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport says the Arizona Cardinals, Jacksonville Jaguars and Tampa Bay Buccaneers are all in the mix to sign Dallas Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray.

Former San Francisco 49ers offensive lineman Mike Iupati plans on signing with division rival, the Arizona Cardinals.
49ers free-agent G Mike Iupati has told people he plans to sign with the Arizona Cardinals, per sources. Iupati vs. SF DT Darnell Dockett.

It looks like Buffalo Bills running back C.J. Spiller will have quite the market when free agency kicks off next week.
This from Rand Getlin of Yahoo! Sports.
— Rand Getlin (@Rand_Getlin) March 7, 2015
I’m still wondering why the Bills are going with a declining back in LeSean McCoy over keeping Spiller.
It looks like Darnell Dockett is getting close to deciding on which team he’ll be playing for un 2015 after the Arizona Cardinals cut him just last week.
Former Cardinals DT Darnell Dockett expected to decide today between 49ers and Cardinals, though Rams and Seahawks also interested.
— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) March 4, 2015
Unlike Rex Ryan and the Buffalo Bills, Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians was smart to stay away from trading for LeSean McCoy.
Arians says on @NFL_AM he knew McCoy was available in trade. Says he “wasn’t a fit” for Cards.
— Gregg Rosenthal (@greggrosenthal) March 4, 2015
McCoy wasn’t a fit because he’s declining and is about to turn 27 years old.
Adrian Peterson, the Minnesota Vikings all-time leading rusher and 6-time Pro Bowler had his suspension overturned by U.S. District Judge David S. Doty on Thursday. The decision overturned a season long suspension handed down by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell to Peterson after a September indictment for severe discipline on his 4-year-old son. Peterson was placed on the commissioner’s exempt list and has remained there ever since.
In November, Peterson pled no-contest to a lesser charge of misdemeanor and did not serve any jail time. During the saga, Peterson has been vocal about his suspension and has been back and forth on his stance to remain a Viking and his lack of trust with the organization and appears ready for a fresh change of scenery. The Vikings can release or restructure Peterson’s contract during his stay on the exempt list but no trade of the star running back can be consummated until the NFL’s new league year begins on March 10th. In a report from NFL.com, Peterson is rumored to be wanted by the Arizona Cardinals, Indianapolis Colts and his home town Dallas Cowboys. Peterson, 29, is in the prime of his career and is currently 29th on the NFL’s all-time rushing list with 10,190 yards and has an outside chance at catching Hall of Famer and former Cowboy Emmitt Smith, who holds the current record of 18,355, if he remains healthy and productive.
The big story now is how the NFL Players Association and it’s President DeMaurice Smith will battle the NFL on reinstating Peterson, who under a November 2014 ruling is indefinitely suspended until at least April 15th. Smith argues that the NFL Collective Bargaining Agreement has a policy for player conduct and the NFL is clearly violating it in Peterson’s case. Expect this case to rev hotter in the coming days as the new league year and free agency are a week away.
This is a huge surprise.

Looks like the Cardinals could bring back Dockett.
Can confirm @NBCdianna report Cards will cut Dockett. AZ retains interest in re-signing him at lower rate once he sees what his market is
