Cardinals Shopping Deone Bucannon

The Cardinals are “stepping up their efforts” to trade former first-round pick Deone Bucannon before the deadline, Jason La Canfora of CBSSports.com tweets. JLC reported that Bucannon was on the block over the weekend, but it sounds like the Cardinals are pushing even harder now to get a deal done. 

Bucannon was a first-round pick of the Cardinals in 2014 and broke out in 2015 with a team-high 112 tackles plus three sacks and three forced fumbles. Injuries have slowed him down since then, and he has failed to find a consistent role in coach Steve Wilks‘ defense. Bucannon saw time on 66.57% of the Cards’ defensive snaps last year, but has played on just 53.04% of Arizona’s snaps this year. Over the last three weeks, he’s been in on less than a quarter of the plays.

The Cardinals are 1-4 and also have Haason Reddick on the block, so they could be extremely active between now and the Oct. 30 trade.

    Every time I’ve watched the cardinals, which isn’t too often, I was always impressed with Bucannon. Surprised they can’t find a role for him.

    Only problem with Arizona is Steve “ Give me another drink” Keim is running the team and the horrible head coach he hired. Steve “ If only I had a clue “ Wilks.

      You mean the guy that found David Johnson, hired Bruce Arians, built an elite D, and now drafted a super promising QB in a rebuild after not even finishing bad enough to land a franchise qb in a regular draft….
      That Keim?
      Cant deal with a rebuild year bandwagoner?
