2015 NFL countdown: 60 days remaining and Cardinals jersey no. 60

We look at yet another jersey.

With 60 days remaining until the Arizona Cardinals start the 2015 regular season, we look at yet another uniform number -- No. 60.

Who is the guy to wear it now? That would be guard Antoine McClain. Don't know who he is? That is because he is new to the team. He came from Clemson (we know the Cards like Clemson guys) and has been a practice squad guy. He was on a roster in 2013, but he has yet to play a game in the league.

I don't expect we will hear much about him. He probably won't make the team.

In recent years, there have not been impactful 60s. Center Nick Leckey wore for a couple of seasons last decade, as did center Mike Gruttadauria. Guard Anthony Redmon wore it from 1994-1997, when he was a starter for the team after being drafted in the fifth round.

Defensive lineman Al Baker who was a 3-time Pro Bowler and an All-Pro while in Detroit, played for the Cards from 1983-1986.

BigRedBilly will have more on him, but a guy to remember was Roger Finnie, who started on the offensive for St. Louis from 1973-1978. He was the unsung left tackle on the record-setting 1975 line.

The unforgettable Conrad Dobler wore 60 for one season in 1972
