There should be more turnover on offense than on defense in terms of starters and rotation players, but these players could also find themselves on the roster bubble when Cards camp 2014 gets going.
OG Paul Fanaika
Started all 16 games at right guard while Colledge filled in for rookie Cooper. Played admirably but could be out of work if Colledge is retained.
ILB Jasper Brinkley
Started first four games at inside linebacker while Daryl Washington served four-game suspension. Was great run defender and below average at everything else. Development of Kevin Minter and possible re-signing of Dansby could affect his status in 2014.
ILB Daryl Washington
Strictly a money issue. Washington is one of best inside linebackers in the NFL, but a $10 million roster bonus could throw a wrench into things. Something to watch in coming weeks. (Don’t expect this, but don’t be surprised if he's cut or traded.) It's worth noting that Kent Somers of AZCentral.com reports the Cardinals are expected to pay the bonus.
CB Jerraud Powers
Under contract through 2015 but was picked on by opposing quarterbacks throughout season. No one allowed more receptions in 2013 than Powers’ 73, according to Pro Football Focus. Roster spot could depend on draft, free agency and potential re-signing of Antoine Cason.
S Curtis Taylor
Saw playing time in only one game and on special teams only (Week 16 at Tennessee). May not make it on roster to early May.
