The Arizona Cardinals conducted their first training camp practice on Saturday
It was a beautiful day at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale on Saturday. The Arizona Cardinals had their first practice of training camp under new head coach Steve Wilks.
The focus on Saturday, at least on the offensive side of things, for both fans and media, was the quarterback play. Both Sam Bradford and rookie Josh Rosen practiced.
Judging by social media posts by fans and by the media, Bradford looked good for the most part, except to those who don’t want him here in the first place. No matter what Bradford does will be good enough for them.
Rosen had his first NFL training camp practice on Saturday. Many were fixated on his interception he threw. That will happen, so learn to roll with the punches.
According to arizonasports.com, there were a few other items of note but nothing extraordinary. It is just the first day of practice.
Unless something spectacular happens we won’t report on every single tidbit of every practice. However today was a big day being the first day of camp.
A new era starts for the Cardinals with the new coaching staff and new quarterbacks. It has been the Bruce Arians and Carson Palmer show for the last five years.
One thing that hasn’t changed is Larry Fitzgerald at receiver. He was back out there. It was nice to see the familiar face once again.
There are a lot of new players to get used to but looking forward to following those we have grown to love. Guys like cornerback Patrick Peterson commanded a lot of media attention on Saturday, to no one’s surprise.
The team will have another open practice on Sunday at the same time as Saturday. Practice is from 1:30 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. They also have an open practice on Monday, however that will take place in the morning from 8:00 a.m. until 10:40 a.m.
