Five candidates for Arizona Cardinals MVP through week six

1 of 5

The Arizona Cardinals are 4-2 through six weeks thanks to contributions from many players

When you look at how the Arizona Cardinals have performed over the first six weeks this season, there are a number of players that stand out for team most valuable player.  What’s even more great is you can take several players from offense and defense to find your guy.

Even in the two losses there have been bright spots for the Cardinals.  Here are the five Cardinals players I feel are the best current candidates for MVP.

5. Rashad Johnson

Quietly the Cardinals safety leads the team with three interceptions.  He seems to always find himself around the ball.

Johnson also has recovered a fumble and made 25 tackles so far.  Like I said, he is always around the ball.  Those are the types of defenders you want on the field at all times.

He’s in his seventh season in Arizona and is getting better and better each season.  He had a very good 2014 season with four interceptions but only being six games into the 2015 season he likely eclipses his 2014 total soon and blows that away.
