One of the many bright spots in day one of the training camp that caused a very big roar from the crowd, was a grand entrance from safety Tyrann Mathieu (A.K.A) the Honey Badger. Mathieu made his entrance to camp mid-way through the day and to the roar of the crowd he waved his hands in appreciation. The crowed stood the entire time it took for the blond mohawked star safety to make his way down the side-line. A very spirited Mathieu shook hands of trainers and teammates before heading to the side of the field where the defensive backs were meeting, he is a gamer and it is evident that sitting out is killing him.
Mathieu still dressed as if he were in game mode with the patented roll up of the sleeves on the practice jersey, the only thing missing was a helmet and ankle tape, but it was a cool moment for the fans as they all know just how valuable this young kid is to this team.
The team has not released any recent dates to expect him back on the field as they just put him on the PUP list for training camp, which gives him enough time to cover the 6 to 8 weeks he says he is still away from making a return.
The Cardinals have a bye in week number four this year and a come back in week five would be ideal for a return, but the team has already said they will not rush him back and they will definitely not leave it up to him because if they did that he would have ran out of that tunnel onto the field to practice today.
