New faces on the sidelines for Cardinals
Another day, another new player.
Vonnie Holliday, acquired in the deal that sent Tim Hightower to Washington, made his Cardinals debut Wednesday morning.
Holliday was on the sideline watching practice even though he had practiced three times with the Redskins prior to the trade.
A 14-year veteran, Holliday called the trade a “little bit of a surprise” but then added that “the situation here (in Arizona) is better.”
He knows he’s here to “help bring the young guys” around and be a role player.
One of those young guys is his cousin, O’Brien Schofield. “Good to see him. Still not sure what he has going on with that hairdo.”
Schofield has bleached a stripe down the middle of his hair.
Among the players waiting for the new collective bargaining agreement to be completed thus allowing them to practice (hopefully Thursday, August 4) is cornerback Michael Adams.
“I might hit the first three people that I see catch a ball.”
Adams is anxious to show off his “bionic arm” after off-season shoulder surgery.
Patrick Peterson has switched numbers. He’s now #21 while Hamza Abdullah is #23.
