With the lockout maybe, possibly and wishfully nearing an end, the time for teams to begin readying for the next season may be at hand.
A few Cardinals, though, are tired of waiting around. They want to make sure everyone is ready to go.
According to Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic, veterans Adrian Wilson and Larry Fitzgerald are trying to schedule a minicamp within the next couple of weeks.
“We’re trying to get three days in, or three practices in, depending on what guys have to do,” Wilson said. “We’re not trying to take up guys’ time but we are trying to get better as a team, get better as individual units.”
While this is certainly a nice idea, it would probably be difficult to get an entire team together, especially when many key players are free agents. Add in the fact that the starting quarterback is likely not even on the roster and one could question just how productive these practices would be.
Still, fans would rather see their team’s players practicing and getting better as opposed to sitting around and getting fat, so from an effort standpoint the Cardinals seem to be on the path back to success.
