Jerraud Powers: “No need to rush” on deciding where to play next

GLENDALE, Ariz. – History has proven that when the Arizona Cardinals are done with a player, and they don’t see that player in their future plans, all ties are cut off when it comes to re-upping that player.

Case in point: Rashad Johnson, who signed a one-year deal with the Tennessee Titans after receiving no contract offer from the Cardinals whatsoever.

It’s looking like the same scenario is playing out with Jerraud Powers.

Powers, who recently returned to Twitter, was asked by some fans, and Darren Urban from the team’s website about his status with the team this offseason, along with how his visit went with the New York Giants late last week. To the extent of Powers’ “knowledge,” he says the Cardinals have not made him one offer to return to the team this season.

Here’s what Powers had to say:

If it’s indeed the end for Powers in Arizona, he’s leaving on very good terms. He arrived in Arizona shortly after Bruce Arians – who was Powers in 2012 with the Indianapolis Colts – was named Cardinals head coach. Powers played in all 32 games (26 starts) in his first two seasons with the Cardinals. Last season, Powers played in 13 regular season games, along with both playoff games against the Green Bay Packers (NFL Divisional Playoff) and Carolina Panthers (NFC Championship Game).

In his three seasons with Arizona, Powers had 137 tackles, two sacks, five interceptions, 50 passes defensed, two forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries and three special teams tackles.
