Just hours before free agency officially began Youth Harold Landry Jersey , the Arizona Cardinals have decided to release safety Tyrann Mathieu, according to Jay Glazer of Fox Sports:Cardinals have informed the Tyrann Mathieau The Honey Badger they are releasing him— Jay Glazer (@JayGlazer) March 14, 2018Last week, it was reported that the Cardinals wanted Mathieu to take a pay cut.聽 as he was making about million a season. It would appear as though the two sides couldn't restructure his contract, which is why the 2015 Pro Bowler has been released.The release of Mathieu comes a day after it was announced by multiple sources that the Cardinals were signing quarterbacks Sam Bradford and Mike Glennon. In releasing Mathieu, the Cardinals save valuable cap space and can now pursue some more of the top names on the market.Mathieu was drafted with the 69th pick by Arizona in 2013, and the 5-foot-9 Cheap Customized Jacksonville Jaguars Jerseys , 186-pound safety instantly became one of the best defensive backs in football. Through his first five NFL seasons, Mathieu has 16 interceptions and 41 passes defended.With virtually all of the top-tier NFL free agents already finding new homes, Mathieu is arguably a top-five player on the open market. But NFL Network's Ian Rapoport noted that there's one team already in line to pursue Mathieu:The #AZCardinals are releasing versatile DB Tyrann Mathieu, source said. They tried to redo his deal but it wasn鈥檛 to be. Keep an eye on the #Giants and his former defensive coordinator.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) March 14, 2018Plenty of teams will be in the market for a ball-hawking safety. Besides the New York Giants, teams like the Pittsburgh Steelers, New York Jets Darius Leonard Color Rush Jersey , Cleveland Browns and Indianapolis Colts could use a player like Mathieu in their secondary.For the Cardinals, losing Mathieu doesn't hurt their defense as much as it would appear. Patrick Peterson is arguably the best shutdown cornerback in all of football, while Antoine Bethea and Budda Baker round out the team's safety position.Given his world class talents and age (25), Mathieu should have no problem finding a new home. If anything else, it'd be surprising to see him available on the market for more than two days.
LOS ANGELES — The Los Angeles Kings play a pivotal game for their postseason chances against the Arizona Coyotes on Thursday night at Staples Center.
The Kings (42-28-7) play the front end of a Pacific Division back-to-back set against a pesky Arizona team that has been a thorn in their side this season.
Though the Coyotes (27-39-11) are in the Pacific Division cellar, Los Angeles has lost two of the first three games (1-0-2) of the season series, the most recent a 4-3 shootout loss in Arizona on March 13. The win was the lone NHL victory for goaltender Adin Hill Brian Urlacher Bears Jersey , who stopped 34 of 37 shots and 4 of 5 shootout attempts.
The Kings are third in the Pacific Division and the importance of winning this game is magnified with the Ducks on the docket Friday night in Anaheim. Los Angeles and Anaheim are tied with 91 points but the Kings maintain the third and final automatic Pacific Division postseason qualifier because it has more regulation and overtime victories.
Los Angeles coach John Stevens noted that he expects playoff-level intensity from the Coyotes, who have played well despite competing in games of no postseason consequence to them. He cites their improving goaltending situation and a key to being more competitive.
“I’d say the last 20 games, Arizona is one of the best teams in the league,” Stevens said. “Give them credit. They’ve stuck with it. They’ve really got their team to buy in to the way they want to play.
“They have finally solidified their goaltending, which has been an issue all year, with a lot of it due to injury. But with Antti Raanta and Darcy Kuemper (a former King acquired at the Feb. 27 trade deadline) they are very capable.”
The Kings enter the game down a significant player as defenseman Jake Muzzin left Los Angeles’ 3-0 win over Calgary on Monday with an upper-body injury which has him listed as week-to-week. Rookie Kevin Gravel will likely draw in on the third pair alongside Christian Folin.
Stevens does not name his starting goaltender prior to games and with the Kings facing a back-to-back, the question is if he will start Jonathan Quick in both contests or have rookie goaltender Jack Campbell take one of the starts.
Campbell has played well since being recalled from the the AHL on Feb. 22. He has not lost a game in regulation in four starts Billy Price Jersey Elite , registering a 1-0-2 record with 2.61 goals-against average and .927 save percentage.
The Coyotes won their second straight road game against a first-place team, defeating the Pacific Division-leading Vegas Golden Knights 3-2 on Wednesday night. Arizona defeated the Tampa Bay Lightning 4-1 on Monday and then flew across country to win the penultimate contest of its six-game road trip.
Kevin Connauton scored two goals and Antti Raanta stopped 27 of 29 shots in the Coyotes’ first win against Vegas this season (1-2-2).
“We played a pretty complete game,” Connauton said. “After the first two periods we were happy with where we were as a team. We stuck to our system and kept it simple, we weren’t making the risky plays that we do went we don’t get the results in game we want. It was a full 60 minutes.”
Clayton Keller registered an assist to extend his personal career high and Coyotes rookie record point streak to 10 games (five goals, nine assists). He is one of eight players in franchise history to record a streak of 10 games or more.
Kuemper could get the call between the pipes for the Coyotes and could have extra motivation facing the team that traded him Feb. 21. Kuemper was acquired from Los Angeles in exchange for forward Tobias Rieder and goaltender Scott Wedgewood. Kuemper has a lifetime 3-1-2 record against the Kings in seven games with a 2.33 GAA and .924 save percentage..
