Arizona Cardinals Bird Droppings: Where The Offseason Feels Like A Barren Desert Edition

Ranking situations at free safety - NFC West Blog - ESPN
A Facebook discussion on Kerry Rhodes' prospects as Antrel Rolle's replacement in Arizona left me mentally ranking the situations at free safety in the NFC West, based on a combination of ability and potential. 

Word From the Birds Blog - A Predictor Of Leinart's Success
SI.com has a story posted today about the “Rule of 26-27-60″ as a guide (although not a guarantee) of NFL quarterbacking success. And, according to the rule, Leinart should work out. The idea? If a guy scored at least a 26 on the infamous Wonderlic exam at the combine, had at least 27 college starts and completed at least 60 percent of his collegiate passes, usually, it means the guy can succeed on the NFL level.

About those rookie contracts
Ran into general manager Rod Graves yesterday before he was going to start a lunchtime workout and we had a brief chat.

TV time for Beanie and Dock
Longing for some glimpses of some of your favorite Cards before training camp? Well, here’s your chance.

The Learning Curve Of Jorrick Calvin
Getting a college degree is important to Jorrick Calvin, although he understands why a cursory glance of his circumstances might say otherwise. The cornerback, a sixth-round pick of the Cardinals in April, wasn’t able to play his senior season at Troy because he was academically ineligible. It sounds bad, he knows. He insists it isn’t really him.

Driven By Denial
Marshay Green’s effort doesn’t fade in the heat. Dressed in a tight black tank top and white compression pants, the undrafted rookie cornerback looks more like he is training for the Olympics than football.

Arizona Cardinals star receiver Larry Fitzgerald has turned his hometown of Minneapolis into the summer hot spot for NFL receivers past and present.

Word From the Birds Blog | The Williams workouts
Dan Williams hasn’t shied away from workouts this offseason, and it’s made a difference. As the rookies go through their final week with coach John Lott before getting a little off time prior to training camp, the Cardinals’ No. 1 pick and nose tackle of the future looks to be in good shape and he said he is "right back to where I need to be" — which is in the 325 to 330-pound range (the roster officially lists him at 327).

Raising Zona | The Best of the NFC West: Quarterbacks
Arizona Cardinals: Matt Leinart. Leinart takes over for Kurt Warner and doesn’t have many career stats to back him as an "All-Star". He’s far from it, but he’s who Arizona has now. He has 14 career TD’s and 20 interceptions.

Niner Noise | The Best of the NFC West: Quarterbacks
Arizona Cardinals: Matt Leinart. Matt Leinart has championship experience, albeit in college and by learning from former QB Kurt Warner ever since he entered the league Leinart has the potential to be a successful quarterback for the Cardinals. Leinart takes over the team with just 17 NFL starts.

azcardinals.com | Helping Put The Puzzle Together
Explaining everything T.J. McCreight and Quentin Harris do for the Cardinals takes a little time. Or maybe just by pointing out Nehemiah Broughton and his spot on the roster.
