Arizona Cardinals training camp awards presented by Doug and Wolf

Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians

The Arizona Cardinals’ 2015 training camp has come and gone.

From July 31, when the players reported, until Aug. 28, when camp ended, the players took the field for 19 practices — all of which were open to the public.

Plenty of good happened at the place head coach Bruce Arians dubbed “Camp Cupcake,” with some younger players stepping up and veterans reaffirming their place on the team. There was also some bad, though, with injuries taking their toll.

Doug and Wolf on Arizona Sports 98.7 FM decided to take a look back at camp and hand out some awards, which can be seen below:
