The Arizona Cardinals had their 2020 media day on Saturday
It wasn’t practice and it wasn’t a preseason game, however it was still a nice sight to see with new Arizona Cardinals receiver DeAndre Hopkins in a uniform for their 2020 Media Day. It’s something but unfortunately we are still at a point where we don’t know if the season will start on time.
That said, it was still nice to get that first glimpse. The team is scheduled to hit the field for their first training camp practice next week at State Farm Stadium.
That all of course hinges on no setbacks from the team or the league before then. The good news is the preseason games have been canceled so there is no rush to get to practice if there is any kind of set back.
We are still six weeks away from the regular season opener for the Cardinals at the San Francisco 49ers. If they take the field next week, that gives the team five solid weeks of practice to get ready.
Also unfortunate is we won’t get to see Hopkins first catch until September 13th but it should be well worth the wait. Hopkins was named 8th on the NFL Top 100 for 2020 this past week.
The Cardinals also saw Chandler Jones listed at 15 on the same Top 100 list. It will be fun to see him take the field with the upgraded defense as well.
Also getting into uniform for the first time in a Cardinals uniform on Saturday was first round pick Isaiah Simmons. He will number 48 for the Cardinals. The anticipation to see him in a Cardinals uniform is just as great, at least it should be for all fans.
Right now all we get are images of players going through some walkthrough’s but hopefully soon we will get to see so much more. We continue to hope for some kind of regular season.
