Arizona Cardinals predicted to sign Mike Evans, Chase Young in 2024 NFL free agency moves

If one site's NFL free agency predictions for the Arizona Cardinals are correct, the NFL team will be making a huge splash this offseason.

Or make that a tidal wave.

USA TODAY Sports' For the Win recently predicted new teams for 30 great NFL free agents and the Cardinals were predicted to land two of them.

Two of the biggest names on the list: Cory Woodruff had Arizona signing wide receiver Mike Evans and defensive end Chase Young in his predictions.

Of Evans, who has 94 touchdowns in 154 career games for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, he wrote: "We’re going to go a bit outside of the box here and suggest the Cardinals surprise everyone and throw a huge contract at Evans that he cannot refuse since the team has that kind of money to spend. The Kansas City Chiefs are a definite possibility here, but what if they can’t fully give Evans the deal he wants? The Cardinals easily could. Paired with a possible Marvin Harrison Jr. pick in the draft, the one-two combo of Evans and MHJ could boost the Arizona passing game substantially for Kyler Murray."

Free agency: Arizona Cardinals listed among NFL teams that could make a lot of noise in 2024 offseason

Of Young, who has 16.5 sacks in 43 career games with the Washington Commanders and San Francisco 49ers, he wrote: "Young would be a great fit on the Cardinals defensive line, one that desperately needs a player of Young’s caliber to help its continued growth. Prying him away from the NFC West’s San Francisco 49ers wouldn’t hurt, either, and Arizona has the money to lure him to Glendale."

USA TODAY Sports recently ranked the Cardinals No. 3 on a list of 10 NFL teams positioned to make a lot of noise over the next few months.

Landing Mike Evans and Chase Young in NFL free agency would certainly qualify as a lot of noise.
