According to their official website, the Arizona Cardinals currently have 100 players on their roster.
Forty-seven of them weren’t on the roster when the 2012 season ended.
But maybe the one new face getting the most attention is veteran quarterback Carson Palmer. Acquired in a trade with the Oakland Raiders in the offseason, Palmer is being counted on to jump-start a woeful passing offense that ranked 28th in the National Football League last year.
New head coach Bruce Arians has no doubt that Palmer will be able to resuscitate the Cardinals’ offense.
“He’s still got the arm, he can make all the throws,” Arians told NFL AM on NFL Network. “What I love about him is he brings spirit to the locker room. He’s on fire every day when he comes in there — he’s the first one in there, the last one to leave and (he’s) everything you want out of your quarterback.”
