Arians: Mendenhall is an "every-down back" - [Full Article]

Cardinals HC Bruce Arians on new RB Rashard Mendenhall.

“As a running back he’s the total package,” Arians said in a release by the team. “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.”

Fantasy Impact: 

The Cardinals gave Mendenhall a one-year contract, which doesn't indicate a ton of confidence. If Ryan Williams is healthy, this could be an interesting camp battle this summer.
