Poll: Who was the best 2015 newcomer for the Arizona Cardinals?

New, comments

Another end of season poll for you.

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

The polls continue as we look back at the 2015 season. You, the readers, have decided with very lopsided votes that Carson Palmer is the team's offensive MVP, that Tyrann Mathieu is the team's defensive MVP and that David Johnson is the team's top rookie.

Now let's open a question about who was the best 2015 newcomer -- this can be a draft pick, an undrafted rookie or a free agent addition. Make your vote and discuss it in the comments below.

The candidates:

David Johnson: Your top rookie for the team, he was super important down the stretch. He scored 13 touchdowns and had over 1000 yards from scrimmage, despite getting very limited playing time until well into the last half of the season.

Mike Iupati: He was exactly what everyone hoped he would be as a run blocker and he was even better in pass protection than many said he would be. You never had to worry about the left side of the interior and he added toughness to the line.

Dwight Freeney: He was signed off the streets and picked up eight sacks, including some very timely ones late in games.

Markus Golden: With four sacks on the season and leading the team in quarterback pressures, he became the only consistent threat off the edge.

Chris Johnson: Perhaps you forgot about him, but he rushed for over 800 yards and was an absolute godsend to the running game, being the balance that made the offense so prolific early in the season. Believed to be washed up when he was signed, he was on pace to rush for around 1300 yards. He ended up a Pro Bowl alternate.
