Cardinals Defensive Player of the Year
There are a lot of positive storylines coming out of the defense. Kingsbury added former Denver Broncos head coach Vance Joseph to his staff to run the defense.
That means the Cardinals will go back to a 3-4 defense and Jones can run after opposing quarterbacks from the middle as a linebacker. Jones lead the league in sacks in 2017 from that position.
Suggs could be the darkhorse here. He is returning home to play in the same are he played his college ball in. He will be out to prove he can still play after 16 seasons with the Baltimore Ravens.
Alford and Murphy are going to get their shots to show their stuff with Patrick Peterson absent for the first six weeks of the 2019 regular season. Alford is the assumed starter but Murphy will give him a run for his money.
Baker is getting better and better. Not only is he doing his part in the defensive secondary but is a hard hitter on special teams. He had 78 tackles a season ago.
