CB - SF
Week 7 Outlook
Newly signed CB Dre Kirkpatrick is listed as inactive for Sunday night's game versus Green Bay.
Kirkpatrick was brought in to replace Jason Verrett, who was lost for the season with a torn ACL. He may be available for next week's contest against the Seahawks.
Current free-agent CB Dre Kirkpatrick is reportedly visiting with the New Orleans Saints, per Ian Rapoport.
Kirkpatrick is set to visit with the New Orleans Saints after spending the 2020 season within the Arizona Cardinals' secondary, totaling 56 tackles, seven pass deflections, and three interceptions across 14 games. The veteran cornerback could help upgrade a thin Saints secondary, with former DROY Marshon Lattimore entering the fifth year of his rookie deal. He also visited with the Patriots last month, so he seems determined to sign with a contender. Fitzpatrick continues to be a stalwart athlete entering his 10th year in the league and could wind up starting for either New Orleans or New England, so continue monitoring his status throughout the week.
Former Cincinnati Bengals and Arizona Cardinals CB Dre Kirkpatrick is reportedly visiting with the New England Patriots, per Ian Rapoport.
The veteran cornerback is set to enter his 10th year in the league and is reportedly visiting with the Patriots on Thursday. Kirkpatrick started 11 games for the Cardinals in 2020, finishing the season with 56 tackles, seven pass deflections, and three interceptions. He could spend time as a slot cornerback in Bill Belichick's defense, adding immense talent alongside All-Pro CB Stephon Gilmore and JC Jackson. Continue monitoring this situation, as Kirkpatrick still has plenty left in the tank to strengthen a revamped Patriots' roster in 2021.
Cardinals CB Dre Kirkpatrick (concussion) is active for Week 4.
Kirkpatrick is a surprise "active" after not practicing on Friday. However, Arizona is missing starting safety Budda Baker. It sets up for a nice opportunity for Teddy Bridgewater and the Panthers' passing attack.
CB Dre Kirkpatrick signed with the Cardinals on Sunday.
The Cardinals lost Robert Alford (chest) for the season and added Kirkpatrick for depth. He will be reunited with defensive coordinator Vance Joseph. Kirkpatrick racked up 27 solo tackles, one sack and one fumble recovery across six games for the Bengals in 2019.
