Draft Scout Justin Bethel News
04/20/16 - CB Justin Bethel underwent surgery to repair a left foot fracture that's expected to sideline him for OTAs.
Bethel is a key special teams contributor as a three-time Pro Bowl pick who could move into a permanent starting role at cornerback after signing a three-year, $15 million contract extension in December. He started four of the last five games at corner last season.
01/18/16 - CB Justin Bethel was teary-eyed after the game. He gave up a 60-yard 'Hail Mary' on fourth-and-20 that kept alive Green Bay's final drive.
12/05/15 - CB Justin Bethel signed a three-year contract extension that keeps the Cardinals special teams player under contract through 2018.
Terms were not disclosed by the team, but the deal is worth $15 million and includes $9 million in guarantees and another $1.8 million in incentives, according to NFL Media and ESPN.com.
Bethel, 25, has played with the Cardinals the past four years after being selected in the sixth round in the 2012 NFL Draft out of Presbyterian. The 6-foot, 200-pounder was selected to the Pro Bowl in each of the last two seasons as a special teams player.
10/26/15 - CB Justin Bethel can be a starting NFL cornerback for just about any team. Although he gave up a 31-yard completion to wide receiver Chris Givens down the right sideline that let Baltimore have some last-minute hope, Bethel did a bang-up job stepping in after Jerraud Powers went down with a pulled hamstring. "I was prepared to play corner and have enough practice for it and know I have the skill set for it," said Bethel, who forced one fumble and recovered two. "There was one play I wish I could take back, but other than that, I was prepared for it."
09/27/15 - CB Justin Bethel's 21-yard interception return for a touchdown came while being involved in his first defensive snap of the season. Bethel has a handful of packages designed for him to come in and play during nickel situations, but the opportunity never presented itself until Sunday against the 49ers. "He is the ultimate team guy," Cardinals defensive coordinator James Bettcher said. "You see all the plays he makes on special teams and he just waited his turn." Bethel has made the Pro Bowl twice as a special teams gunner.
