The Arizona Cardinals officially kicked off their first mini camp of the 2010 offseason on Friday as a complete success. The second day takes place tomorrow(Saturday), which is also the Cardinals annual "Fan Fest". You can view the information on it here. Some notes on the first day:
- The turnout for the Cardinals first mini camp was very encouraging. Every player but guard Deuce Lutui(who has yet to sign his tender offer) was on duty for the 90-minute practice. Matt Leinart commented that they want Deuce to show up but must keep moving whether he's there or not.
- Leinart also commented on his first practice, stating that his "accuracy wasn't there" but that it was only the first day and he liked how things felt other then that.
- Darren Urban posted a rookie reporting video with Bryan Robinson speaking to rookie Dan Williams. Robinson explained that he wanted Williams to win the starting nose tackle job and he'd do everything he could to help him.
- We saw the first glimpse of the offensive line. The starters were (T)Levi Brown, (G)Alan Faneca, (C)Lyle Sendlein,(G)Reggie Wells), Brandon Keith(T). Most of us predicted a line up similar to this but it's very early and things can change quickly.
- This mini camp will take place till May 2nd, while the OTAs will be May 18-20, May 25-27, June 1-4, and June 7-10.
So far it sounds like the first day of mini camps were very productive and just what Ken Whisenhunt was looking for. It also makes Saturday's Fan Fest even more intriguing. Any thoughts on the first day?
