After a couple of injury-plagued seasons,
The Cardinals will need a healthy Mathieu to offseason the loss of former defensive coordinator Todd Bowles and cornerback Antonio Cromartie. In two seasons, Mathieu has 100 tackles and three interceptions but has been hampered by nagging injuries.
"It just feels good to be free," he said.
But according to a report from FOX Sports 910 in Phoenix, Washington is unsure about his status with the league. He was suspended a year ago on May 30, 2014 for being a multiple offender of the NFL's substance-abuse policy.
However, he was expected to apply for reinstatement a month ago but did not do so.
Assuming Washington is reinstated to the NFL at some point he will likely be subjected to punishment under the NFL's domestic violence policy. On March 24, 2014, he pleaded guilty to assaulting his ex-girlfriend.
"He knows the clock's ticking," Arians said Tuesday, via the team's official website. "It is for a lot of guys on this team. You get a window to make a run and most of it depends on your quarterback. Right now, it's our window. There is a sense of urgency."
The Cardinals were 8-1 last season before Palmer went down with a season-ending ACL tear.
Thomas appeared in two games for Arizona last year, going 1 for 9 for 81 yards and a touchdown. Harnish has been a backup for the first three seasons of his career with the Colts and Vikings and has not appeared in a game.
Palmer, who is six months removed from surgery to repair a torn left ACL, was limited to 7-on-7 drills instead on Tuesday.
"Just felt good to not be around cones and hurdles, and step overs and all the different on-field things that we've been using -- bags," Palmer said. "It felt good to be around other humans and going 7-on-7 and have that competition, that speed, that quickness of the game because I got a lot of work to do, a long way to go."
Palmer added that he'll play the entire season with a knee brace.
"I've been politicking with the trainers and the physical trainers because 12 plays just isn't enough for me and I need more action out there," Palmer said.
