The Arizona Cardinals have enjoyed a prosperous offseason, but there is a caveat with adding young and veteran talent via the draft and free agency: Veterans of the team—young and old—have been put on notice and may be out of jobs soon.
Even new free-agent signees have work to do thanks to some of the rookies added during the recent NFL draft.
Some have seen the writing on the wall since Steve Keim and Bruce Arians took over the team a year ago; some should have seen it coming after a catawampus 2013 season; and others, though they may not agree with it, may not get much of a chance to prove their worth on the field after signing with the team this offseason.
Who are they? You already know most of them well. Here are five Cardinals veterans who have been put on notice this offseason.
