Arizona Cardinals News and Notes from Monday

NFL: Preseason-Oakland Raiders at Arizona Cardinals Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

The Arizona Cardinals had another training camp practice on Monday, here are some notes from Bruce Arians press conference and what went down at practice.

Love Arians talking about the fact he is telling Fitz to relax a little. We’ve seen quite a bit at this camp that the Arizona Cardinals know what they have in certain players, we’ve seen numerous veterans days off. Arians is not worried about Fitz, outside of actually being injured.

As the kids would say... It’s lit!

I talked with a couple of writers yesterday and the conversation was about how weird this entire John Brown thing is. Right after it happened it was "He’s real close" then it went to he didn’t even travel to San Diego, then they get back and he’s fine. Concussions are different for everyone, so let’s hope this is just Brown and the Cardinals being overly cautious and not a real issue. (Not for the Cardinals either, for Brown personally)

Again, conversations you hear go a long way in developing a makeshift 53 man roster. This is one I have heard before, but I still wanted Wetzel on the roster.

This is so weird, yesterday when asked about the depth behind Okafor he talked about how Kareem Martin has a heck of camp and Shaq and Tristan were getting better. Now? Reminds me of the Barkley praise then ripping.

Practice notes:

Adele Voice: Helloooo...

Rucker and Mathieu bounce right back in, as does John Brown, but Justin Bethel has quite a bit to prove.

It’s getting close, guys and gals.

Something I talked about yesterday. Mathieu looked extremely quick, made decisive cuts and was flying around when he put himself into drills and workouts. This is a different recovery than the first time. Much like Palmer, it almost seems like it made him stronger.

Similar to yesterday, the defense just seems to be in a better place than the offense right now. Offense seems off, for some reason.

Switch, flipped.

That’s it for today.
