A profusion of change highlighted the Arizona Cardinals’ 2013 offseason, and with that change comes hope that the new regime can introduce a winning mind-set to a locker room in need of strong leadership.
Let’s dust off the team awards and predict which players will earn them based on offseason work, preseason action and “potential” production this season.
A few newcomers to the team’s roster have made positive impacts on the preseason playing field, and even more have made watching training camp a delight. Quarterbacks Carson Palmer and Drew Stanton have solidified the most important position on the field, while rookies Jonathan Cooper, Kevin Minter and Tyrann Mathieu have impressed virtually everyone who’s laid eyes on the team this offseason.
Will any of these players win team season awards come January?
It’s a safe bet at least one will, but let’s go over the entire list of players predicted to walk away with an award.
