New, comments

The Arizona Cardinals have waited to hear their team called to represent in the NFL Top 100 and their patience paid off.

The NFL 100 list, the highly criticized and most talked about NFL rankings of each offseason has culminated with a busy night for the Arizona Cardinals.

That’s right, not one, not two, but three Arizona Cardinals players found their way into the top 28 of players in the NFL as ranked by… their peers.

First, the NFL leader in sacks and the man who jumped 57 spots in the rankings, Chandler Jones:

Jones was one of the most dominant players in the NFL in 2017 and his peers noticed it.

Then, there is the ageless one, Larry Fitzgerald, who ranked at 27 in 2018:

The amazing thing about Larry Fitzgerald, since the inaugural NFL 100, he has made every list.

His consistency and tireless work ethic is something that is loved by his peers and makes him so revered, even as he ages.

Finally, the one of the highest rated cornerback in the NFL, Patrick Peterson comes in at 23 on the list.

The Cardinals have three of the top 28 players in the NFL and may even have one more inside the top 20, even if David Johnson did nothing in 2017.

We shall see, but congratulations to Jones, Fitz and P2 on their continued excellence.
