Cardinals fire GM Rod Graves

After a promising 4-0 start, the Arizona Cardinals finished 5-11 in 2012, prompting changes in the organization.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the team fired general manager Rod Graves Monday.

Graves has been with the Cardinals organization since 1997 and has held the post of general manager since 2003 when he replaced Bob Ferguson.

Graves was one of six African American general managers in the league before his departure.

This season, the Cardinals became the first team in NFL history to start a season 4-0 and finish 5-11.

Numerous reports indicate that Steve Keim, the Cardinals' vice president of player personnel, is a strong candidate to take over the GM post. Keim has been rumored for other general manager openings, including Cleveland, where the Browns fired Tom Heckert Monday morning.
