You knew Denny Green was going to try to make a statement with his young Cardinals team this year. He isn't content with a five-year plan most coaches anticipate when they take over a gutted franchise.
No, Green, who for some time was a party to the lawsuit filed by the widow of Korey Stringer claiming Green and others pushed Stringer beyond his endurance, has found himself treading similar ground.
The Cardinals announced Monday that their remaining four days of developmental camp have been canceled. The ruling comes after several Cardinals players complained to the NFL Players Association that Green was violating union rules for offseason practices. The claims included that Green was pushing them too hard for July practices and workouts.
Green is the second "old-school" coach who has been forced to reduce the number of days the team can have minicamps and developmental camps. In May Tom Coughlin, a coach known to be tougher than a $2 steak, was forced to surrender two practice days for the Giants after a similar complaint.
