At the end of the Cardinals' three-day minicamp Thursday, Jonathan Dwyer was unsure of his place in the team's Andre Ellington-dominated running game. Dwyer said his goal throughout camp was to focus on his game, but added he was not uncomfortable playing a supporting role.
"My ideal situation is to do whatever I can to earn as many carries as I possibly can and do whatever I can to help the team win," Dwyer said. "If that's to push Andre, make him a better player, help him along the way and have a running-back-by-committee approach, and be the best running back group in the league, that's pretty much it for me."
We're expecting Ellington to lead the Cardinals in touches, but it's not clear if Dwyer or Stepfan Taylor will be his primary backup. Whoever gets the job may have some red zone value if the Cardinals want to limit Ellington's goal line work.
