Here are the greatest players in Arizona Cardinals team history.
When people think about the origins of the NFL, and the teams that started it all, the Green Bay Packers, Chicago Bears, and a few others come to mind. The Arizona Cardinals likely do not. However, despite a lack of success that makes those other teams memorable, the Cardinals were one of the charter members in the NFL, and are the oldest franchise in the NFL, continuously operated since 1898.
They began in Chicago, and remained there through the start of the NFL in 1920. In 1960 they moved to St Louis, and then in 1988, moved again, this time to the state of Arizona, first as the Phoenix Cardinals, then as the Arizona Cardinals.
Though they haven’t had a great deal of success, outside of two championships when they were still in Chicago, they have had their share of great players at every position, but especially in the secondary. Here’s a look at the top 25 players in Cardinals franchise history.
The players on this list were ranked solely on their time with the Cardinals franchise, and any time spent elsewhere did not factor in.
