The Arizona Cardinals will look to bounce back from a miserable 2018 season with a first-time NFL head coach and a rookie quarterback that was the top pick of this past draft.
The Cardinals hired Kliff Kingsbury, who was let go by Texas Tech and then was set to be the offensive coordinator for USC. With the first pick, the Cardinals selected Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback Kyler Murray – who turned down a contract with Major League Baseball to play football.
Arizona will also have another season of wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald. He has been the main staple of the Cardinals’ offense and now will have an opportunity to mentor a young quarterback in Murray during his first professional season.
The Cardinals had one of the worst defenses in the league last season. The addition of Terrell Suggs should help going forward. The Cardinals will also have rookie Zach Allen starting on the defensive line. Patrick Peterson returns in the secondary with new addition Robert Alford.
