There are 90 days until the Arizona Cardinals play the San Diego Chargers on Monday Night Football for their regular season opener.
So let us look at jersey number 90 and the history of that number.
Currently, and since 2004, defensive lineman Darnell Dockett wears the number. He is the unquestioned defensive leader and one of the more important players to ever suit up for the Cardinals. He was third round pick out of Florida State and has only missed two games in 10 years. He has 40.5 sacks in his career.
Before Dockett, Andre Wadsworth wore 90 from 1998-2000. Wadsworth is one of the more famous first round busts for the Cardinals. He was the third overall pick in 1998, but managed only 36 games in three seasons before his NFL career was over. His knees were bad.
Mark Campbell wore it in 1997. He was a third round pick of the Broncos in 1996, but did not play. He played five games for Arizona.
Keith McCants wore it in 1994 and 1995. More well known for his drug problems, McCants played a season and a half for the Cardinals.
Michael Brandon also wore it in 1994, but he only played in one game for the Cardinals.
Tyronne Stowe was No. 90 for the Cardinals from 1991-1993. He had played four season in Pittsburgh before coming to Phoenix. He played 43 games in three seasons, starting 33 of them.
Eldonta Osbone was the man with 90 in 1990. I don't remember him at all, but he played 12 games for the Cards, logging one sack. He was an undrafted player who only played that season in the NFL.
Karl Wilson wore 90 in his one season with the Cardinals in 1989. He started six games that season and had a sack. He had a nine-year NFL career, playing for eight different teams.
Back in the St. Louis days, Robert Stallings wore it in 1986, playing in three games. Billy Cross wore it in 1951, but was an offensive player and returners. Vic Schwalll wore it in 1950. He was a halfback.
