Glendale, AZ — Wednesday morning marked the final full practice for the Arizona Cardinals before making their way to Cincinnati for Friday's preseason debut against the Bengals. Similar to their first exhibition game, numerous starters for the Redbirds opted for a reserved approach during practice with their eye on Week 1 come September 11th.
Glendale, AZ — With the regular season just over a month away, we’ve reached the final two days of training camp at State Farm Stadium. After Wednesday’s open practice to the public, the Arizona Cardinals will return to their facility in Tempe with preparation mounting toward the Kansas City Chiefs come September 11th. Questions have arose regarding key players’ health,...
It was a pretty quiet day on the practice field. Most of the action happened during the closed portion of training camp on Thursday. But the fireworks came in the press conference room when quarterback Kyler Murray showed up for an unscheduled meeting with the Cards' press. Here are the highlights from Day 2:
Two days after their franchise quarterback was outed for having an independent study clause in his $230 million-dollar agreement, the Arizona Cardinals were finally back on the practice field to kickoff training camp in 2022. While newly acquired wide receiver Hollywood Brown remains sidelined with a hamstring pull, coach Kliff Kingsbury downplayed the significance of the injury long-term.
Contrary to many opposing fanbases outside of the Valley, when the pads come on, Kyler Murray is a bonafide superstar at the position. At his best, he's a top five quarterback in football with the capabilities of carrying this once dismal franchise on his modest 5'8 back. Since drafting the former Oklahoma Sooner, Murray has improved both statistically and by wins every year he's been in the NFL. He's also made the Cardinals relevant again, which was something that was greatly missing in the post-Bruce Arians era of Arizona football.
Disrespect, as it relates to any Phoenix based sports franchise, is not something that is foreign to Valley fans. As that disrespect relates specifically to the Cardinals, however, it is something that has followed this organization dating back to their time in St. Louis. From elite players and coaches alike, no matter if you're Don Coryell or Ottis Anderson, the bird on the helmet tends to initiate a certain level of mediocrity.
Arizona Cardinals Pro Bowl center Rodney Hudson is missing in action and no one outside of the two parties knows when he'll be back.
Another year, another former first-round linebacker for the club that is apparently testing the waters on numerous positions to begin summer workouts. Zaven Collins, the 16th overall selection in the 2021 NFL Draft, was originally selected by general manager Steve Keim as the heir-apparent at MIKE linebacker to Jordan Hicks. Entering year two, even without the threat of Hicks on the roster, Collins still isn't cemented as the man in the middle to call the defense.
Add running back Darrel Williams to the latest list of “Steve Keim Specials.” According to Jordan Schultz, the Arizona Cardinals are adding the former Kansas City Chiefs running back on a one-year deal. https://twitter.com/Schultz_Report/status/1529150809979736068 The move won’t break the bank for the salary cap-strung Cards, and it’s a significant addition of a veteran player at a low price that could...
When the Arizona Cardinals opted to sign running back James Conner last spring to a meager one-year deal, it was viewed by most as nothing more than an insurance policy. Insurance that then starter Chase Edmonds would be unable to shoulder a large portion of the workload. Insurance that the club may fail to land one of the draft's top backs in Alabama's Najee Harris or Clemson's Travis Etienne. Insurance that the team may need to tap into Conner's prior days in Pittsburgh as a bellcow rusher capable of scoring touchdowns in bunches.
