Arizona Cardinals defensive back Tyrann Mathieu was drafted 69 overall in this years’ draft. After all the negative things NFL Network’s draft analyst Mike Mayock said about the former LSU cornerback, Mathieu says he’ll “blow [Mayock] a kiss” the first time he makes a game-changing play.

Following the news of Colin Kaepernick wearing a Miami Dolphins hat and Cam Newton admitting he still roots for the Atlanta Falcons (when he’s not playing against them), the Cardinals’ website has reminded us that star wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald remains a fan of the Minnesota Vikings. “I grew up a Vikings fan and I would be lying to you if I didn’t say I was still...
