Andre Ellington will have a new role as
Andre Ellington rejoined the Cardinals this week, and he'll apparently have a new role in the offense in 2017 as he pulls a reverse Ty Montgomery.as of now, #azcardinals plan is to use Andre Ellington more at WR than RB. Hell do both but Cardinals like him at WR. Kent Somers Richard Rodgers Jersey (@kentsomers) March 14, 2017Ellington was a running back in his first four years with Arizona, and showed promise in his first two seasons. But the emergence of David Johnson (along with the signing of Chris Johnson) led to a smaller role for Ellington, who has had limited touches in the last two years.Moving him to receiver will be an interesting project for coach Bruce Arians and his staff. Ellington has nice skillsbut hasn't been able to carve out a role for Lane Taylor Jersey himself in the last two years despite remaining mostly healthy.Although he's not a prolific receiver out of the backfield,Ellington had 39 and 46 catches in his first two years, respectively. Those are solid numbers, and it's something Arians hinted at several years ago when the young running back arrived."Hes a runner (and) weve kind of turned him into a receiver, Arians said in 2013. I think that Randall Cobb Jersey s his role as a future player, as a 30-down player. I dont think his body-type is going to be the lead-dog runner.If nothing else, he'll be able to add depth at the position as the team has some question marks there. Michael Floyd is gone,Larry Fitzgerald is Mike Daniels Jersey agingand John Brown has lingering injury concerns. Ellington already knows the system, and coaches have likely seen something to make them confident in this move.Heading into last season, Arians said of Ellington:Youd like to look for more opportunities for him to touch the ball. Looks like they've found a way to do so in 2017.
