The NFL Preseason schedule has been announced and the Arizona Cardinals have drawn the Pro Football Hall Of Fame game against The New Orleans Saints.
Well after a day of head spinning interest in the NFL's new Nike uniforms for all 30 of it's teams, the league released it's 2012 preseason schedule on Wednesday, with the Arizona Cardinals having some interesting matchups this upcoming summer.
Many fans have complained about preseason football, but after it was taken away from them last summer due to the lockout, it certainly will be a sight for sore eyes. Here's a look at what team's they be facing off against. Cardinals fans will also get the privilege of taking part in the NFL Hall of Fame game in Canton, OH, taking on the New Orleans Saints as the first preseason game of the year.
This is will be the first time since 1986 the Cardinals have played five preseason games, and was also the last year they played in the Hall of Fame Game.
