Finally, after months of labor-related disputes, both casual spectators and hardcore football fans alike can look forward to football action in the near future. The Arizona Cardinals are expected to open up training camp on Wednesday. This start date, however, has not been confirmed directly by the team yet.
Preseason football will begin in the second week of August. Here's a full look at the Cardinals' preseason schedule:
Thursday, August 11th at Oakland Raiders (7:00 p.m.)
Friday, August 19th at Green Bay Packers (5:00 p.m.)
Saturday, August 27th vs. San Diego Chargers (7:00 p.m.)
Thursday, September 1st vs. Denver Broncos (6:00 p.m.)
The Cardinals have 17 days until their first preseason game against the Raiders. Beginning tomorrow, the Cardinals will have 16 days to sign free agents and rookies. All teams will have to fill out 90 roster spots, which is 10 more than in previous years.
The Cardinals will begin their regular season at home exactly a month from their first preseason game, on September 11th. The game, which will take place on the 10 year anniversary of the September 11th terrorist attacks of 2001, is scheduled to begin at 1:15 against the Carolina Panthers.
