Draft Scout News
12/01/16 - S Tony Jefferson leads all NFL defensive backs with 11 tackles for loss. According to Stats, Inc., no other defensive back has more than six.
11/10/16 - S Tony Jefferson is having his best season as a pro and his improvement has been ten-fold, according to head coach Bruce Arians. "Just about in every phase," Arians said Wednesday. "Starting with his body chemistry. His body fat was down, his muscle was up. He's leaner, faster. Probably the best shape he's ever been in. He had to assume a leadership role that he didn't have to have before with Rashad (Johnson) and Jerraud (Powers). He's the guy that's the voice back there now, and D.J. (Swearinger), and they're both really coming on and doing a really good job of communicating and taking that leadership role and not being a follower."
09/19/16 - S Tony Jefferson tied his career high with 11 tackles against the Buccaneers after a 10-tackle performance in Week 1 against the Patriots. In addition to his 11 tackles against Tampa Bay, Jefferson had two tackles for loss, a fumble recovery and a quarterback hit.
08/18/16 - S Tony Jefferson said the team took coach Bruce Arians' disdain for fighting in camp to heart. Jefferson said there was no way any Cardinals players were going to take swings or cheap shots at Chargers players during two joint practices. "I don't think there's anything to be said," Jefferson said. "B.A. doesn't roll with that so that's just what we've got to do. Turn the other cheek."
04/18/16 - S Tony Jefferson, a restricted free agent, signed his one-year tender qualifying offer with the Cardinals. The 5-11, 212-pound Jefferson set career highs with 75 tackles, two sacks, two interceptions (one returned for a touchdown) and three forced fumbles last season while playing all 16 games (seven starts). Jefferson joined the Cardinals in 2013 as an undrafted rookie free agent from Oklahoma and has played in all 48 games (18 starts) in his first three seasons, collecting 165 tackles, three sacks, two interceptions and four forced fumbles.
