Arizona Cardinals Training Camp Podcast Preview: The Defense

What the Arizona Cardinals will need heading into the 2016 training camp season.

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

There's not much question about the 2016 Arizona Cardinals on the offensive side of the ball. The biggest issue is whether or not the new offensive line will be ready to take on the task at hand blocking for the offense.

Defensively though, there is plenty of unknown.

First though, we begin by talking about Darnell Dockett's retirement and how that will play out. Is Dockett a ring of honor type?

From there we got into the meat of the subject, the defense. On the defensive line, will Frostee Rucker stick? After Calais Campbell, Corey Peters, Rodney Gunter and Robert Nkemdiche, who fills out the line? At linebackers, who makes the roster on the outside?

We know it will be Markus Golden and Chandler Jones, but who comes on after that? Donald Butler had not been signed, but who are the back ups at the inside linebacker position?

The last position is the most difficult, what happens in the secondary? With Justin Bethel starting the season on PUP, what happens to the depth chart, can someone play themselves into a starting role?

All that and more on the newest Rise Up, See Red podcast.
