  • Isaiah Simmons, Zaven Collins Expected To Start

    Arizona Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury said it's fair to assume that linebackers Isaiah Simmons (last year's first-round pick) and Zaven Collins (this year's first-rounder) will line up together as starters this season. It means that Jordan Hicks is the odd-man out, and it was reported this week that the organization has given Hicks permission to seek a trade. It doesn't mean that a trade will happen, but Hicks' role would be significantly downgraded if he were to remain with the Cardinals. Collins was taken 16th overall by Arizona in this year's draft and will give the team plenty of versatility as another defensive chess piece.

  • Jordan Hicks Given Permission To Seek Trade

    The Arizona Cardinals have given linebacker Jordan Hicks permission to seek a trade, according to a source. The Cardinals selected linebacker Zaven Collins with the 16th overall pick in the first round of this year's draft, and he will be the starting Mike linebacker in his rookie season. Hicks took a $3 million pay cut and will now make $2 million in base salary with a chance to make $1 million in 2021. It's possible that he'll remain with the team as a reserve linebacker, but first he'll gauge the market. Hicks also has $2 million available this season in playing-time incentives. The 28-year-old signed with Arizona in 2019, and he finished with 118 tackles and four passes defensed last season.
