Arizona Cardinals history of the number six jersey is a real kicker full of backup quarterbacks
The Kyler Murray noise has picked up significantly the last few days. Thanks to the schedule release and the lack of Josh Rosen in one of the hype videos, everyone all of a sudden thinks that Kyler Murray is a lock at the top spot. Whether that will be the Arizona Cardinals pick or not is to be determined. We have six days before that pick is made.
Thursday was the one week mark until the NFL Draft. It was also the No. 7 jersey on our countdown as well. It wasn’t a wonderful history, but there were some notable Cardinals on that list. Today we look at our next jersey. It has a very short, very miserable history. In fact the first time someone wore the jersey was the 1997 season.
Kicker Joe Nedney spent three seasons with the Arizona Cardinals. In his three seasons he converted 66.7% of his kicks. He went on to have a long career 16-year career, and spent his final six seasons with San Francisco.
The infamous Max Hall wore it for his lone season with the Cardinals. Hall started in three games, going 1-2. He finished with one touchdown to his six interceptions. He was sacked 14 times in six total appearances. Hall only spent the one season in the NFL.
Brian Hoyer wore it for the 2012 season. He made one start, losing it to the 49ers, tossing one touchdown to two interceptions. Hoyer was not retained and went on to Houston, before finding his way back to New England where he started his career.
Sixth round pick Logan Thomas wore it for 2014. Thomas only spent one season with the Cardinals before Bruce Arians released him the next preseason. Thomas plays tight end at this point in his NFL career.
Currently, Charles Kanoff wears the No. 6 jersey. If he can make the 2019 roster he will become the first player since Nedney to wear the jersey for multiple seasons.
Very short, very brief history. It will be like that for a few days.
