The Cardinals traded away their lone fullback on the roster, so there is a need to replace him. Arizona traded Anthony Sherman to Kansas City for cornerback Javier Arenas last week.
If Arizona wanted to pick up a fullback, Mike Cox of the Falcons looks to be available. He started 12 games at that position in the last two seasons. Cox served as the lead blocker for Michael Turner but wasn't much of a threat in the passing game.
Then again, Sherman might have been the last fullback the Cardinals will keep on their roster given Bruce Arians' coaching philosophy. Arians likes to employ more formations with two tight ends, so look for Arizona to replace Sherman with a more versatile H-back.
Arians was quoted in the article as saying,
I want tight ends who are multiple. If you are a defensive coordinator and I send a fullback in and take out a tight end, I will get your best call for that. If I have two tight ends (in the game), and you don’t know if one will play fullback or one could split out wide, you’re going to give me a down-and-distance (defensive) call. You don’t have a specific call. The more flexible tight ends can be, threats at receiver or dual in-line backfield blockers, the more pressure you put on the defense.
The name of Tim Tebow comes to mind for a second, but he's unwilling to play anything other than quarterback so he's not a factor.
James Casey went from Houston to Philadelphia, so he is off the market.
After them, there aren't many who would be considered hybrid backs like that, so it's not likely that Arizona will replace Sherman with another true fullback.
