As the Arizona Cardinals finish off the off-season in preparation for the start of training camp on July 25th in Glendale at University of Phoenix Stadium, we are going to take a look at the team roster from A to Z as it currently stands.  Next up is safety Rashad Johnson.

2013 season: Johnson played in 13 games last season for the Cards.  He started seven of them.  He had 58 tackles and three interceptions.  Oh yes and of course we must mention he lost his finger tip against the New Orleans Saints.  He was able to return to action three weeks later.  He’s one tough guy.

2014 season: Look for Johnson to be in the mix again this season.  His participation and performance have increased year after year since being drafted out of Alabama in 2009.  I see no reason why that progression won’t continue.  He had his most tackles and interceptions in a season yet and hopefully he will be able to improve on that this year.   He will compete for a starting job.
