David Johnson took to the standard practice of holding out of mandatory minicamp as his representatives worked with the Arizona Cardinals on a contract extension.

He was missed — if not by his teammates then by loyal Cardinals fans who quite simply worry that his long-term future might not include Arizona.

So the guys from the Bickley & Marotta show on 98.7 FM Arizona’s Sports Station thought they’d wear their emotions on their sleeves and sing their hearts out. Led by producer Jarrett Carlen, they’ve been putting together a parody song a day as long as the Cardinals running back has been away.

Finally, bless your eardrums, Johnson is back. He reported for duty July 23 and joined the rest of the full roster Friday as training camp began.

Here’s a running tab of all the parodies the 98.7 FM crew covered as Johnson’s contract situation gets sorted out behind the scenes.
