The Arizona Cardinals will come together for the last time this week until training camp
You’d better get your Arizona Cardinals fix in this week. This will be the last time the team gets together as a whole until training camp starts in July.
The team will hold it’s annual mini-camp to finish off their offseason activity schedule. They will be in Tempe for mini-camp Tuesday through Thursday this upcoming week.
Then it is the time most football fan dreads, the down time. For the players it is much needed. The whirl wind of camps, OTA’s, the draft, free agency, will all be in the past.
It will be time to continue to stay in shape on their own but get some needed rest, take family vacations. Then it’ll be training camp and off and running they will go in July.
Cornerback Patrick Peterson already made his return to the team last week during the last round of OTA’s. At least that has been put behind us. No more apologies or statements, just time to get some last work in.
We should hear from head coach Kliff Kingsbury on his thoughts not only on camp but how things are looking, status on the team and players, and what to look ahead to in training camp. He is scheduled to talk to the media each day of camp this week.
We should also hear from rookie quarterback Kyler Murray on Tuesday as he is made available to the media. Don’t expect anything Earth-shattering from either one of them but they could be the last soundbites we get until the end of July.
The team has been lucky up until this point as far as injury goes. They still have a few players trying to rehab from previous injuries sustained last season.
The Cardinals still have not announced their training camp schedule. Hopefully we will hear about that this week at some point.
