The Cardinals have named their captains for the season, and they really come as no surprise: On defense, it is cornerback Patrick Peterson and defensive tackle Darnell Dockett. On offense, it is quarterback Carson Palmer and wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald. And on special teams, it is linebacker Lorenzo Alexander and kicker Jay Feely. Center Lyle Sendlein isn't a captain for the first time in a couple of years, but I'm sure he doesn't mind. There had been a void since there really hadn't been a quarterback to step into that role. Palmer is definitely that guy. The choices were made through a player vote.
