Along with the firing of HC Kliff Kingsbury, the Arizona Cardinals will move on from general manager Steve Keim, according to NFL Insider Ian Rapoport.
#AZCardinals GM Steve Keim is out, as well, sources say, as he's stepping down to focus on his heath. Arizona now needs a new head coach and a new GM, officially.

Keim has been away from the team for a few months now due to a health-related issue. But now, his 10-year span as the Cardinals’ GM has officially come to an end.
The Cardinals released an official statement on Monday morning.

However, sources do note that Arizona is interested in keeping Keim within the organization in a “lesser capacity,” according to NFL insider Jordan Schultz.
Both Keim and Kingsbury recently signed contract extensions over the past offseason. These extensions were meant to keep them through the 2027 season.
Unfortunately, as Arizona’s season took a turn for the worse, they will now begin the process of reshaping the organization.
