We make a lot of stink about how poor the quarterbacks played last season, but if you go back and watch the games, you can see that often times, the receivers were of no help to them. Dropped passes, poorly run routes and an inability to get separation by the receivers often doomed the quarterbacks from the start.
That is why Bruce Arians may look to shake up the wide receiver position on the roster as well. That starts with Early Doucet. Just a couple of seasons ago, Doucet was thought to possibly be the replacement for Anquan Boldin as he had good size and toughness. But now, it looks like Doucet simply needs to go. He drops far too many passes and is always injured.
Evan Silva of NBC Sports and Rotoworld thinks it is a distinct possibility that Doucet is cut this offseason. Here is what he says:
After flashing promise as a slot receiver in 2011 and earning a two-year, $4 million contract last offseason, Doucet took a big step back in 2012 with a flurry of drops and multitude of injuries. Doucet fell to Arizona's No. 4 receiver by season's end, behind Larry Fitzgerald, Andre Roberts, and Michael Floyd. The Cardinals could free up $1.7 million in cap space by cutting him.
If you scroll further down the page, he also has an interesting tidbit on Andre Roberts. Silva believes that Roberts could also be shipped off via trade.
Could WR Andre Roberts be shopped by the Arizona Cardinals?
