But while we wait for football season to finally begin, the ROTB Writing Staff took their shot at answering three questions surrounding the Cardinals franchise.
Don't forget to answer the questions yourself in the comments below!
1) Who is one player that will have a lot to prove in the upcoming pre-season?
Alex Mann: There's a lot of guys... Particularly the guys on one year deals... However, my pick is Ryan Williams. This is probably his last chance to prove that he's got what it takes to play in the NFL. If he can't prove it this season, I find it hard to believe he would find a team after.
AndyStandsUp: The guy, to me, that needs to step it up is Dan Williams. Former regime pick that IMO, hasn't lived up to first round status with Lumpkin, Carter, and Scott lined up behind him ready to take his slot. I'll hedge a little that he should be okay from the Turk, but I could see a possibility that he could be let loose. Jamell Fleming is also supposedly walking a tightrope and his injury doesn't help.
Randy Fields: Ryan Williams, he's got a tag of being fragile and it's going to be hard to shake that tag. Just seeing him in the twitter photo from camp the other day with ice on his knee freaked me out. This is his last chance to prove he can be a 1/2 type RB, and if he blows it he might be in a Tim Hightower situation where he'll get a chance somewhere else because of his talent but be one injury away from calling it a career. Whether by his choice or not.
Jess Root: There are a couple. One is Ryan Williams because he has to prove he can stay healthy. Another is Levi Brown because he is coming back from injury, and he has Nate Potter catching up to him.
2) In your opinion, who should the Cardinals start as Punt/Kick Returner?
Alex Mann: At punt, it's solidified as Patrick Peterson it seems. However, the kick return game isn't so solid. Right now I'm going to go with the guys who are our two best players with the ball in their hands. Patrick Peterson and Tyrann Mathieu.
