Quick Hits With The Arizona Cardinals – 5/15 Edition
Another Friday in the office has arrived my friends, and I’ve found the perfect way to start you day. Simply check out the latest news pertaining to your Arizona Cardinals.
LaMarr Woodley hasn’t given up yet – Darren Urban of AZCardinals.com
"Woodley knows the perception is that his career is winding down. But he just turned 30 in November, and not surprisingly, he disagrees with the assessment.“I think people lost track of how old I was because of the success I had early,” said Woodley, who had 57 sacks in his first seven NFL seasons. “You look at my second year, I was starting, went to the Super Bowl, had all these sacks. People are like, ‘Oh, he’s getting old.’ No, I’m just 30 in November. I’m not (old).”Both Woodley and new Cardinals linebackers coach Bob Sanders, who was on the Raiders’ staff last season, said Woodley was playing well in Oakland before the injury even if the statistics did not show it. Woodley also felt he was playing somewhat out of position, working as a defensive end in the Raiders’ 4-3 alignment instead of his familiar outside linebacker role in a 3-4."
Former Arizona Cardinals LB Dansby claims Patriots cheated in 2008 game – Josh Breech of CBSSports.com
"During an interview with ProFootballTalk.com on Thursday, Dansby claims that while he was with the Cardinals in 2008, there was a problem with his headset while the team was playing in New England and he doesn’t think the problem was an accident.“My headset was working fine, every game,” Dansby said. “Until the very last game of the year. We get in Foxboro, they couldn’t get my headset fixed, for nothing in the world.”The game against New England was Arizona’s 15th game of the season, which means that the Cardinals‘ headsets worked perfectly for 14 games and then somehow malfunctioned in Foxboro."

Patrick Peterson takes batting practice and throws first pitch at D-Backs game – by Arizona Sports
"The four-time Pro Bowler did not limit himself to pitching, though. He took batting practice with the D-backs, and didn’t look half bad in the process.“I needed a round of warmups first, but once I got it going I felt pretty comfortable in the batting cage and started hitting some — not any homers — but started hitting some balls that I could keep in play and hopefully get to second base on,” he said.Peterson said he played some baseball when he was younger, but obviously did not stick with the sport."
