Teams are being told the free-agent RB Rashard Mendenhall (Cardinals) is retiring, according to sources. He hinted at the possibility in a Feb. 25 column.
Huddle Up: It sounds like Mendenhall, whose best years were back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons in 2009-10, may be done at 26 years old. He gained 821 yards from scrimmage and scored 8 TDs this past season on a 1-year deal in Arizona.

Arizona Cardinals impending free-agent RB Rashard Mendenhall hinted at retirement in a piece he posted on The Huffington Post Tuesday, Feb. 25. 'That day I sat on my couch two years ago was the very next day after I tore my ACL in week 17. The journey I envisioned is the two years of rebuilding that would follow. And as I write this, today is the day that the journey is over, and I am fully at peace. Eagerly looking to a new way, which lies ahead,' Mendenhall wrote.
Huddle Up: Mendenhall, who has played 6 pro seasons, rushed for only 687 yards and averaged 3.2 yards per attempt this past season but did find the end zone 8 times -- 11th among all RBs. It appears, though, the Cards are prepared to move on, and if Mendenhall does suit up again, it likely will be in a new uniform in a No. 2 role.

Huddle Up: Mendenhall will get the start but Andre Ellington is still expected to get 15-20 touches and is the preferred fantasy play. Mendenhall is only worth flex consideration in the deepest leagues.

Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians said RB Rashard Mendenhall (toe) participated in practice Monday, Nov. 4, and looked good.
Huddle Up: Mendenhall missed the Week 8 game against the Falcons and also had the bye week to recover. His return obviously would cut into the touches rookie Andre Ellington would receive.
