Powers has been working with the first-team defense in OTAs opposite cornerback Patrick Peterson, the Cardinals' official site reports.

Powers worked as the slot corner for the entirety of the 2014 season due to the presence of Antonio Cromartie in the secondary. However, Cromartie bolted to the Jets in free agency this offseason, leaving the No. 2 CB gig up in the air. While Powers may be better suited to operate in the slot due to his 5-foot-10, 187-pound frame, he'll aim to fend off Justin Bethel for the opening as training camp and the regular season approach. In two season in the Arizona desert, Powers has so far accumulated 118 tackles (108 solo), 28 passes defended, four interceptions, two forced fumbles, and one sack in 32 games.

Powers totaled 53 tackles (48 solo), 10 passes defended, three interceptions, two tackles for loss, one sack, and one forced fumble during the 2014 season.

During his first four years in the league, Powers never played more than 12 games in a given season. However, he hasn't been one of the game day inactives since joining the Cardinals in 2013, averaging 54 tackles, two picks, and one forced fumble per campaign. His tackle output this year was hindered by the presence of Antonio Cromartie, who was picked up in the offseason, but defensive coordinator Todd Bowles used six or seven defensive backs frequently, thereby allowing Powers to take the field for 70.3 percent of the defensive snaps, according to Football Outsiders. Cromartie is an impending unrestricted free agent, though, meaning Powers could regain a starting role next season.

Powers notched four tackles (three solo), one tackle for loss, and one interception during Sunday's victory versus Washington. Overall, he took the field for 49-of-60 defensive snaps, FOX Sports 910 Phoenix reports.

Powers now leads the Cardinals in both picks (three) and passes defended (four), which is impressive considering the pedigree of the talent in the defensive backfield. While he isn't receiving a full workload, the battered state of the linebacking corps has forced the hand of defensive coordinator Todd Bowles, who is utilizing six defensive backs more often than not in recent weeks. Taking advantage of the confluence of events, Powers is knotted up with six other defenders for the league lead in interceptions.
