In one of the best seasons in Arizona Cardinals history, they had one of their best offensive lines in team history.

Leading the way was recently signed free agent guard Mike Iupati.

Iupati in his first season with the Arizona Cardinals was a Pro Bowler and helped pave the way for the Cardinals best offensive seasons.

Iupati was a warrior in his career. Drafted in the first round in 2010 by the San Francisco 49ers, Iupati was part of the 49ers renaissance, going to three Pro Bowls and having one All Pro season.

After five seasons with the 49ers, the Cardinals signed Iupati and he played in 39 games in four years with the Cardinals.

Iupati would finish his career and tour of the NFC West with two seasons in Seattle as a Seahawk.

Overall, Iupati made four Pro Bowls and was a one-time All Pro in 140 regular season games and 11 playoff games.

Congratulations on the great career, Mike and enjoy retirement with that $50 million in career earnings.
