Most people believed that meant that the Cardinals front office and coaching staff felt confident in the crew they were bringing to camp. Now after OTA’s and the team’s mini camp, things don’t look so settled. Coming in to the offseason the majority of those in the know around...

Arizona Cardinals: “Outstanding” OTA’s– and a few other Takeaways

(photo courtesy of ktar.com)     The organized team activities, though optional, still serve its purpose.  It is strictly voluntary work; but almost all players will show up none-the-less. There are a few veterans missing here and there, but regardless, the OTA sessions act as filler more or less, just for the team to see what it’s working with. “It’s mostly assignments...

Is Massie ready to claim right tackle job?

TEMPE, Ariz. -- Bobby Massie made an assumption that a lot of college stars make when he they arrive in the NFL. "I was going to go out and do the same thing I did on Saturday on Sunday," said Massie, the Cardinals' fourth-round draft pick out of Mississippi in 2012. "It ain't worked out like that, obviously." Massie started all 16 games at right tackle...

Look for Arizona Cardinals to fill right tackle job from within

There were lots of good questions during my video chat on Thursday. (Warning: it's about 20 minutes long.) Many of the questions were about the Cardinals' plan for the draft next month.

Cardinals season preview: Offensive line

Poor quarterback play was the Cardinals defining characteristic the past three seasons, but poor offensive line play wasnt far from grabbing the mantle. To address those problems, the Cardinals selected left guard Jonathan Cooper with the seventh pick in the draft -- the first time theyd selected a lineman higher than the fourth round since Levi Brown in 2007.
