Arizona Cardinals Training Camp Preview: Linebackers

This is the biggest question mark on the defense and quite possibly the entire team. Karlos Dansby took his talent and bolted to Cleveland for a four-year deal in free agency. Daryl Washington was suspended for at least a year in late May for multiple violations of the league’s substance abuse policy. It left a big hole in the middle of the Arizona 3-4 scheme and is going to force...

Bruce Arians: John Abraham a freak of nature

(photo courtesy of www.playersview.net)   With the demise of Daryl Washington stemming from a suspension of at least one year (according to Gregg Rosenthal of NFL.com), and the loss of Karlos Dansby to Cleveland, it is safe to say this off-season has been that of turbulent for the Arizona Cardinals.  However, the team is smart enough to know that the show must go on, as they search...

Bruce Arians on John Abraham: He’s a freak of nature

Cardinals linebacker John Abraham set a big goal for himself last month. Abraham said that he is shooting for 20 sacks this season, which would be both a career high for Abraham and one of the best totals since the league started using sacks as an official statistic. It would also be a pretty remarkable achievement for a player who turned 36 in May, but Cardinals coach Bruce Arians...

NFL's punishments should better fit crimes

Let's make something crystal clear. Cardinals linebacker Daryl Washington knew the consequences of his actions, whether it was smoking marijuana as his agent seemed to confirm in a prepared statement, or missing the league-mandated test as his teammate, John Abraham asserted last week in a tweet that has since been deleted. The penalty for both is clearly stated in the NFL'...

Cardinals notebook: Familiarity fosters increased expectations

TEMPE, Ariz. -- What a difference a year makes. When the Cardinals reported for OTAs last year, a new coaching staff greeted a new roster that had turned over nearly half its players. That lack of familiarity carried right over into training camp.  "Nobody was talking. Everybody was just quiet," said linebacker John Abraham, who invented a word to describe the scene. ...

With the 20th pick in the Cover32 Mock Draft, the Arizona Cardinals select…

Our first mock draft is up and the Arizona Cardinals “select” Dee Ford-DE/LB Auburn University. Ford would be a great pick to shore up the pass rush opposite John Abraham. His size 6’2″ and 252 pounds with a 4.59-second 40-yard dash time make him an asset.

Jared Allen on the Super Bowl-champion Seattle Seahawks is about as scary as NFL nightmares get for opposing quarterbacks.
