Cardinals taking part in offseason workouts

Several Cardinals have been in participation during player-only workouts at Arizona State University.

About 30 Arizona Cardinals players have been at workouts this week at Arizona State University, and center Lyle Sendlein explained some of the issues they have to deal with.

After Sendlein put seven athletic sandals on the playing field, he said, "These represent defensive players. It's like I'm a kid playing football in the backyard again."

Still, work is being done, and that's what important. Several players traveled from out of town to be there. Said second-year quarterback John Skelton, "We're doing a lot of (team-specific) stuff, while other players are sitting on their couches."

Varying numbers of players have been working out over the last month. Former Cardinals receivers coach Jerry Sullivan came from Austin, Tex., thanks to Fitzgerald, to help.

Said Sullivan, "This is good; they need the structure. These guys haven't been down this road before. They need to be in the right mind when they go to camp."
