Training camp is here.
In six short days the team will open up the 2017 NFL season and we can finally get past talking about quarterbacks of the future, Blaine Gabbert, and the loss of Calais Campbell... and now talk about quarterbacks of the future, if Blaine Gabbert is good and if the loss of Calais Campbell actually hurts.
Here is all the information on 2017 training camp from the Arizona Cardinals.
