Cardinals don't expect turnover to alter defensive production

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Among the questions the Arizona Cardinals not only hope but expect to answer during training camp is that the defense once again can be one of the best in the league.

How good is the Philadelphia Eagles defensive line?

Trying to determine to value of an odd-front defensive line can be challenging given that the concept of a 3-4 defensive front is to two-gap, meaning the objective is to take on two blockers – offensive linemen – each in order for the linebackers to make the big play.

Calais Campbell says the Cardinals are real contenders with Carson Palmer

Sometimes I think that NFL fans overvalue the quarterback position – they tend to put all of the blame on a quarterback if their team loses, and shower the quarterback with all the praise if they win. Then again, last season the Arizona Cardinals proved that nothing is more costly than losing your QB1 to an injury. With Palmer healthy Arizona started out extremely hot and won eight...

Calais Campbell has got some skill on the basketball court

Arizona Cardinals defensive end is one heck of a football player, but he's not too shabby at basketball either apparently. Check this shot out:  Campbell was playing a game of N.F.L. (similar to horse) when he hit that shot over his head. Campbell was an All-State basketball player his junior year of high school in Colorado and is extremely athletic for a man of his size.

Who will be the Buffalo Bills break out player in 2015

For the past couple years the Bills have had one player break out and live up to their true potential. Remember when Marcel Dareus had the word bust being thrown around about him. Then somewhere around two years ago he just started to devour interior lineman. Or how two years ago people were screaming for Stephon Gilmore to be benched and then again with him he just flipped a switch...

The good news is that the Arizona Cardinals landed two players on this somewhat prestigious list in wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald (68th) and Calais Campbell (98th).
