(Eds: APNewsNow. With AP Photos.) By BOB BAUM AP Sports Writer The shout comes from the crowd, ''Go Honey Badger.''
It's a nickname Tyrann Mathieu wanted to leave behind, a reminder of the sorry premature end to his college career as he looks to make it in the NFL.
But now he realizes it's a moniker he can't kick, and he's decided to -- in his words - `just go with it'' for now.
It's so far, so good a few days into his first NFL training camp. The Cardinals are helping the likable, diminutive defensive back.
Meanwhile, Mathieu is flying all over the field, trying to make the kind of plays that made him a sensation before everything fell apart in Baton Rouge.
BEST OF MAXIM
APPROPRIATELY NAMED, TOO
The Arizona Cardinals are giving fans that come out to training camp the chance to cool off in their Big Az Beer Garden. How great of a name is that?
Carson Palmer is grateful that the Arizona Cardinals and his new teammates have embraced him following the quarterback's offseason arrival.
But making friends isn't atop Palmer's priority list. Winning is - even if he has to ruffle some red feathers along the way.
That became obvious when Palmer downplayed praise Sunday from new head coach Bruce Arians about the leadership...

On a day that racial tension and rumors of a supposed bounty swamped the football Twitter world, Darnell Dockett of the Arizona Cardinals came to the rescue and slipped in his own version of comedic therapy to his followers.
The running back is infamous for his outspoken Tweets -- some of which have gotten him in trouble in the past -- and today was no different.
Here is Dockett...
The recent years have been frustrating ones for the fans of the Arizona Cardinals. After Kurt Warner retired it has been one frustrating season after another. Heck, it's darn near enough to drive a fan to drink, but as bad as the team has played that would have resulted in a lot of angry drunks.
The product on the field appears to be changing though. With the arrival of new...
GLENDALE, Ariz. Early in training camp, the Cardinals defensive line has shown more looks than your average runway model.
One nickel package on Monday included four linemen with John Abraham lined up on the right side standing up, Calais Campbell inside of him, Frostee Rucker to his left and Matt Shaughnessy as left end. At other times, the Cards are in their base set with Campbell...
GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Cardinals rookie safety Tyrann Mathieu just can't seem to shake his old moniker, "Honey Badger."
"I tried to, but it seems it's on my shoulder" Mathieu said through a smile Sunday. "I don't know. I just go with the flow."
Mathieu has, however, been able to shake his off-the-field issues, at least so far, as he tries to...
Times are good for Kurt Warner. The former quarterback has a beautiful family, good health and a great gig on the NFL Network.
