Draft Scout Andre Ellington News
03/29/17 - RB Andre Ellington will move to wide receiver this season, Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said Wednesday. Signed to a one-year deal earlier this month, Ellington has proven to be better in the passing game during his four seasons in Arizona and struggled in his lone campaign as the team's featured back. The 5-9, 199-pound Ellington saw his carries dwindle from 201 in 2014 to a total of 79 over the last two seasons, including 34 for just 96 yards in 2016.
03/13/17 - RB Andre Ellington is returning to the Cardinals on a one-year deal. The 5-foot-9, 199-pound Ellington played in 53 games (15 starts) in his first four seasons with the Cardinals after he was selected in the sixth round of the 2013 NFL Draft out of Clemson. Multiple injuries hampered the 28-year-old Ellington during his career, although he owns 1,697 rushing yards and nine touchdowns on 398 attempts (4.3 yards per carry average) while adding 999 receiving yards and three TDs on 112 receptions.
10/05/16 - RB Andre Ellington has the same number of carries as WR Larry Fitzgerald this season - two. But now that Ellington is the new primary backup to David Johnson because Chris Johnson was placed on injured reserve, the carries should go way up.
"I'm just excited to go out and play and get a chance to get a win," Ellington said, adding when asked how much more of a role he'll have Thursday night, "Your guess is as good as mine, man. I'm just going to be ready. ... I'm not exactly sure what's going to happen. My job is to just be prepared."
Head coach Bruce Arians said Ellington will be pulled from kickoff return duties because of his value at running back. Wide receiver Brittan Golden, elevated from the practice squad this week, will return kicks and play on all special teams units, according to Arians.
10/04/16 - RB Andre Ellington will be the team's No. 2 option at tailback now that Chris Johnson has been placed on injured reserve. David Johnson will continue to get the lion's share of the carries for Arizona, but Ellington better be ready, coach Bruce Arians said.
"It just gives Andre Ellington another chance now to get more reps," Arians said, "and we're not afraid to give the ball to Andre, that's for sure."
08/14/16 - RB Andre Ellington had a 35-yard gain, the Cardinals' longest run of the night against Oakland on Friday, and played a big role in Arizona rushing for 172 yards overall. Ellington is the team's No. 3 running back behind David Johnson and Chris Johnson, but he still figures to be a factor in the team's offensive game plan. "I know this, every time he touches, it it's got the potential to go to the house," coach Bruce Arians said.
