2015 NFL countdown: 27 days left and Cardinals jersey No. 27

We missed a day, but the countdown is back.

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

There are 27 days left until the Arizona Cardinals open their regular season at home against the New Orleans Saints. I missed No. 28 yesterday, which has had players like Justin Bethel, Rashard Mendenhall and J.J. Arrington.

But today is about No. 27. It is now worn by cornerback Darren Woodard, who was on practice squad a year ago and is in camp battling for a spot in the roster. He likely will not make it.

The diminutive Michael Adams wore it from 2007-2012, somehow always finding away to make the roster. He had the reputation of being a good tackler.

Cornerback Jay Taylor had it from 1989-1991, a guy I remember when I first was a fan.

Probably the best of this number was Carl Allen, a cornerback who played in St. Louis from 1977-1982. He had six picks in 1978 and five more in 1979.

Do you have any 27 memories? Tell us about them. Here is the list.
