Just a little closer.

Today's number is 32, as there are 32 days until the Arizona Cardinals open the regular season against the New Orleans Saints at home.

32 is a very popular number these days. It belongs to safety Tyrann Mathieu, one of the most popular players on the team.

In previous years, running back Edgerrin James wore it. He did from 2006-2008.

But the man at 32 was Ottis Anderson, the franchise's all-time leading rusher. He was No. 32 from 1979-1986. He had 7999 yards rushing as a Cardinal and was a Pro Bowler his first two seasons and a 1st team All-Pro as a rookie, when he rushed for over 1600 yards.

He then would go to the Giants and win Super Bowls.

Are there other players who have worn 32 you remember? You can see the full list here.

Tomorrow will be the one-month mark fro the start of the regular season. At least for now we have fake real football in the preseason.
