The Cardinals are one of five teams that can be forced to do Hard Knocks if no team volunteers. Most teams usually don’t want the distraction, but Cardinals owner Michael Bidwill sounds like he’s open to the idea.
“We’re always going to listen to everything,” Bidwill said on Arizona Sports’ 98.7 FM’s Doug & Wolf Show. “We’ll see what comes up. I think we’ve done a good job of being available and volunteering to do things, like All or Nothing. So we’ll see where we end up.”
The Cardinals have a few big names on their roster including Offensive Rookie of the Year Kyler Murray, future Hall of Famer Larry Fitzgerald and sack master Chandler Jones.
The NFL allows teams to refuse Hard Knocks if they’ve been on it in the last 10 years, if they have a first-year head coach, or if they’ve been in the playoffs in the last two years.
Five teams, including Arizona, don’t fall in any of those categories. The Lions, Broncos, Jaguars and Steelers are the other four teams.
The Cardinals were featured on Amazon’s ‘All Or Nothing’ series in 2016. Here’s a small clip from that series (open in YouTube):
