“I truly regret my incredibly poor judgment and inexcusable actions,” Keim said. “Everyone associated with the NFL and its teams is held to a high standard of behavior and I obviously failed to meet that. I sincerely apologize to our organization and its fans as well as to my family. I accept full responsibility for my actions and hold myself completely accountable. Moving forward, I will take the steps to ensure that I never put myself or the Cardinals in this type of situation again.”
Keim initially joined the organization as a college scout in 1999, and he quickly worked his way up the ranks. He was named general manager back in 2013, and the Cardinals won at least 10 games and had a pair of playoff appearances during his first three seasons at the helm. Back in February, Keim signed a four-year extension with the team that would last through the 2022 season.
This is the second offseason incident for the organization, as second-round wide receiver Christian Kirk was arrested for disorderly conduct and property damage in February (with the news emerging following his selection in the draft). Michael Floyd was the last member of the organization to be arrested for a DUI, an incident that ultimately led to his release.
