Bruce Arians pleased with Justin Bethel

Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians believes that Justin Bethel has been the team's best cornerback during the off-season.

Bruce Arians has said that Justin Bethel has given him a "nice problem" following his performances during the off-season with the Arizona Cardinals.

The cornerback had been expected to continue as cover for Patrick Peterson and Antonio Cromartie in 2014.

However, the head coach told the Arizona Republic: "Over Patrick and Cro. They gave up more big plays in the spring than he did, and [he] got his hands on more balls than anybody did. That's a nice problem to have."

Bethel made just 21 tackles during the 2013 NFL season, featuring mainly on special teams.
