2012 was a the tale of two seasons for Bobby Massie. In his first eight games, fans were clamoring for his benching, despite the horrid play from the entire offensive line. In the second eight games, Massie locked down the right side allowing less than five sacks for the remainder of the season.

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Cardinals offensive lineman Bobby Massie doesn't have to be told what's at stake in his third NFL training camp. He knows plenty well himself, and from the way he's talking early in training camp, he's fired up about it.

Arizona coach Ken Whisenhunt is shifting D'Anthony Batiste to left tackle and moving in rookie Bobby Massie at right tackle as he works to stabilize what has been a shaky offensive line since the loss of Levi Brown to a season-ending injury.
Whisenhunt liked the combination in last Thursday's loss at Tennessee and plans to play them only a small amount of time in Thursday...

When Bobby Massie, once a projected 2nd round pick in a weak offensive tackle class, fell to the Arizona Cardinals in the 4th round of the 2012 NFL Draft, many saw it as a steal. Massie seemingly fell for no reason, a belief backed up by Adam Schefter tweeting that he asked a high level executive in the NFL why Massie fell, to which he responded “no idea.” It appears the Cardinals...
