James Conner is set to visit with the Arizona Cardinals today


It looks like it could be the end of the road in regards to the Pittsburgh Steelers and James Conner. His offseason has been pretty quiet as he only gained heavy interest from the New York Jets. The Arizona Cardinals were viewed as a good landing spot for James Conner before the offseason started and it looks like both have interest in getting together today for a visit.


Fox Host Jay Glazer broke the news this morning on Twitter saying James Conner is heading to the Cardinals for a visit today. It would not be surprising if the Cardinals and Conner do get a deal done before leaving the facility because it would be very beneficial for both sides to come to terms. Conner can run next to Chase Edmonds in Arizona and that would give them a veteran running back to help develop him as well.

James Conner always had the talent to be a top running back in the NFL, but he needs to be able to do it alongside another running back. The Steelers found that out real quick when Le'Veon Bell decided to part ways with the Pittsburgh Steelers. He just couldn't stay on the football field when he was being used as the Steelers bell-cow.


Now the Cardinals could give him an opportunity to revive his career, but not be a bell-cow going into the 2021 season. It will be interesting if both sides can work out a deal today as Conner has been sitting on the open market for quite some time. If Conner does sign with the Cardinals this will be the first football team he has played with outside of Pennsylvania in his entire career.
