The Arizona Cardinals, in 2010, ran the football less than anyone in the NFL, gaining the fewest yards out of all 32 teams.

Expect that to change in 2011.

According to tight end Jeff King, who signed with Arizona in the off-season, one of the reasons he chose the Cardinals was because of the style of football the team wants to play.

"They want to run the football, they want to use multiple tight ends, I think that fits what I do best," King told Sports 620 KTAR's Doug and Wolf. "I've been happy with my decision thus far."

King came over from Carolina, a team that was proficient on the ground with both DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart, both of whom topped the 1,000 yard mark in 2009. The Cardinals certainly wouldn't mind seeing something similar happen for them with Beanie Wells and Ryan Williams.

King wouldn't be shocked if Williams, one of the guys he'll be expected to open holes for, becomes a star.

"I think he can be special," the tight end said. "I watched him, followed his career at Virginia Tech. I think he can be a really good player."

That's not to say, though, that King doesn't want to be involved in an aerial attack. The Cardinals traded for Kevin Kolb so that they could throw the ball a little bit, and King thinks he can help there, too.

"Three years ago I had 46 catches in this league, so I've caught the football before," he said. "Hopefully I haven't forgot."
