OTA’s have ended for the Arizona Cardinals. Now comes the hard part for fans. Waiting for training camp to start at the end of July in Flagstaff.
After OTA’s ended officially on Thursday, the next scheduled team event will be reporting day at training camp headquarters at Northern Arizona University. According to Darren Urban from azcardinals.com, most players will be off until that takes place. However, rookies and some younger vets will stay around for conditioning.
Hard to believe we are only a little more than a month away from training camp opening. With all that goes on in the NFL’s “off-season”, it’s no wonder it seems to move fast. My only concern is the players that don’t stick around for any strength and conditioning don’t go put tons of weight on and report to camp out of shape. This organization is just starting to learn how to win. They need to learn how to consistently do that. Ignoring that in a short amount of time can cost you a whole season. With all the new faces on the team, it is even more important players continue to work at maintaining their shape.
