Arizona Cardinals announce nine captains for 2021 NFL season

NFL: Arizona Cardinals OTAs The Republic-USA TODAY NETWORK

The Arizona Cardinals have announced their team captains for 2021.

Six of the players are returning captains, as the Cardinals will have Kyler Murray, D.J. Humphries, Chandler Jones, Budda Baker, Jordan Hicks and Dennis Gardeck.

The three new captains are DeAndre Hopkins and two new members of the organization in Rodney Hudson and J.J. Watt.

That is quite the collection of talent if things work out for the Cardinals and especially Watt staying healthy.

The most interesting one to me is Hicks, who is unlikely to be a starter, but is so respected by his teammates he is still looked at as a captain of this team.

Murray, Hopkins and Hudson are a strong trio on the offensive side of the ball, while the addition of Watt to the group on defense gives you one of the more accomplished voices in the NFL.

Do any of the captains stand out to you?
