Happy Monday one and all. Hope your weekend was exciting, relaxing, entertaining, or whatever you wanted it to be. As long as you were not banking on the Diamondbacks to finish their road trip above .500, you should have at least gotten something out of the weekend.
Not a ton of Arizona Cardinals news out there, but we are inching... really inching, closer to the start of the camp season, so I am going to start every Monday giving us a look at what is going on with teams from the Arizona Cardinals schedule in 2017.
We will still have our NFC West round up semi regularly, but every Monday will be notes from teams like the Detroit Lions, Indianapolis Colts and Dallas Cowboys to get you at least familiar with what is going on outside of the Arizona Cardinals and NFC West.
Onto the news.
