Even though he says he's not paying that much attention to it, David Johnson says he's ''very encouraged'' about ongoing contract talks between his agent and the Arizona Cardinals.

Johnson said he believes the Cardinals and the team's fan base know how good he is, but he believes others around the NFL may have forgotten.

Arizona Cardinals running back David Johnson told reporters Monday that he's "encouraged" by discussions about an extension as he enters the final year of his rookie contract. Todd Gurley reset the running back market in July despite having two years remaining on his contract, signing a four-year, $57.5 million deal with $45 million guaranteed and a $21 million signing bonus. Johnson did indicate to reporters, however, that his 2017 absence -- when he missed all but half of the regular-season opener with a wrist injury -- has impacted contract talks.

Sam Bradford got the day off as the rest of the Cardinals labored in the friendly confines of Arizona’s indoor stadium, so it was Josh Rosen’s time to shine with the ones.

Josh Rosen’s promise overshadowed by lackluster support in preseason debut for Cardinals

Saturday, August 11th, 2018

Josh Rosen didn’t exactly shine as the last first-round QB of the 2018 NFL draft to take the field during preseason action, but he did show plenty of promise for the Arizona Cardinals as he navigated constantly collapsing pockets and delivered catchable balls to receivers whose hands had other ideas. After leading the Cardinals out of the tunnel, the No. 10 overall pick was under center for all but one drive in the first half and finished his night at 6-of-13 passing for 41 yards and no touchdowns or interceptions. The furthest the Cardinals reached on the field during Rosen’s four drives was a 22-yard trek to the Chargers’ 39 yard line.
