Arizona Cardinals RB Stepfan Taylor will compete for playing time this year behind RB Rashard Mendenhall. As The Arizona Republic's Kent Somers suggests, Taylor isn't a very fast running back, but he's elusive and durable. RB Ryan Williams has had serious injuries in each of the last two years.

Arizona Cardinals RB Rashard Mendenhall never was 100 percent healed from his serious knee injury last season, according to Pittsburgh Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert. Although Mendenhall returned for the Steelers' fourth game, Colbert believes he never got back to the shape he was in 2011. 'Honestly, I don't think he ever quite got to the point where he was 100 percent as we've seen him before,' Colbert said.

Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians praised RB Rashard Mendenhall Wednesday, March 13, just one day after the free-agent was signed. 'As a running back he's the total package,' Arians said. 'He's a big, strong every-down back with speed who can pass block and also catch the ball. I've said before: he's a big man with little-people feet, meaning he can run like he's 180 (pounds) but also pound the ball like he's 230.'
