Arians: Rashard Mendenhall is "a legitimate big-time threat"

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette - [Full Article]

Cardinals HC Bruce Arians signed RB Rashard Mendenhall to a one-year contract in free agency and is thrilled to have him.

“He’s a legitimate big-time threat every time he touches the ball,” Arians, the Steelers former offensive coordinator, said this morning at the NFC coaches breakfast at the Arizona Biltmore Resort. “He’s a big back who never has to come out of the game. He has a 230-pound body with 180-pound feet.”

Fantasy Impact: 

It certainly sounds as if Arians plans to start Mendenhall over Ryan Williams, but we'll know more once we get deeper into summer.
