The Arizona Cardinals have begun the construction of their 53 man roster and one of the first moves made was the addition of a young cornerback, Marcus Cooper.

Cooper has spent the previous three seasons with the Kansas City Chiefs. He was an anomaly his rookie season, drawing praise and rave reviews from fans and Pro Football Focus alike.

Yet, the his play and playing time diminshed over the last several seasons with the Kansas City Chiefs, so a fresh start will be given in Arizona.

Cooper's time in Kansas City was a tale of two careers, the first nine games of his career were fantastic. It has been a free fall since.

But, as we all know, NFL also stands for "not for long" for a reason.

From then on he has not recovered.

Could Cooper be this years D.J. Swearinger?

That's what the Arizona Cardinals would love.

Of course if he is not, that conditional pick could be nothing at all.
