2019 Arizona Cardinals season is the franchise's 100th season in the National Football League, their 32nd in Arizona and their first under head coach Kliff Kingsbury, following the firing of first-year head coach Steve Wilks the previous season. The Cardinals are one of two teams, along with the Chicago Bears, who are the original members of the American Professional Football Association that celebrated its 100th season in 2019. The Cardinals will look to improve on their 3–13 campaign in 2018 and make the postseason for the first time since 2015.
Offseason [ edit ]
Signings [ edit ]
As the result of a negative differential of free agent signings and departures that the Cardinals experienced during the 2018 free agency period, the team received four compensatory selections for the 2019 draft. 
The Cardinals traded their seventh-round selection and the rights to former
head coach Bruce Arians to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in exchange for the Buccaneers' sixth-round selection.  The Cardinals received a second-round pick from the Miami Dolphins, number 62 overall, and a 2020 fifth-round pick in exchange for quarterback Josh Rosen. Supplemental draft
The Cardinals selected
Washington State safety Jalen Thompson in the fifth round of the 2019 supplemental draft that was held on July 10. As a result, the Cardinals will forfeit their fifth-round selection during the 2020 draft.
 Roster changes
In addition to receiving the number one overall draft pick, the Cardinals also have the top spot on the waiver wire by virtue of having the worst record in the NFL during the 2018 season. The Cardinals picked up Pharoh Cooper (wide receiver, previously from the Los Angeles Rams), D. J. Swearinger (safety, previously from the Washington Redskins), Tanner Vallejo (linebacker, previously from the Cleveland Browns), Robert Alford (cornerback, previously from the Atlanta Falcons), Brooks Reed (outside linebacker, previously from the Atlanta Falcons), and Charles Clay (tight end, previously from the Buffalo Bills).
