In 2020, Haason Reddick became the Arizona Cardinals‘ breakout player

And apart from Budda Baker, you can argue that Reddick was the Arizona Cardinals‘ defensive MVP. Some may even place Reddick in the top spot, given his skyrocketing production when the team lost Chandler Jones.

So here we are, just weeks before the new league year begins in March. We can only hope the Cardinals find a way to hang onto their breakout star as he tests the free-agent market. But if Reddick leaves, the Cardinals have more than a few names who showed flashes in 2020, poised for a 2021 breakout.

Today’s post will cover three Cardinals who can break out in 2021. The following players have either started their careers as backups and are set to move into more prominent roles, young players looking to make The Leap, or underperforming players with the potential for a big season.

Let’s discover who’s on the list. Why they’re set for a big season. And what it means for the Cardinals.
