    Note the high percentage of DB's in this group.

    If true - timing of release is a bit strange considering report of Butler injury. Maybe Butler's injury not considered as serious & he won't go on IR?

    Probably while landing making a one handed catch, the one not with the ball lol. Way I understand it, he makes the one handed catches & drops more of the catches using both hands. Maybe he should run routes with one hand tied behind his back lol?

    I'm excited about the speed Isabella brings to the team & looking forward to him making plays. That being said, he's got big shoes to fill there. JB gave us everything he had until he was diagnosed with the illness, put up big numbers. We can only hope Isabella does the same?

    What we need to know is the unique skill-set each new WR brings to the offense.

    What I see in Isabella is a unique combination of mobility, hands and pure speed which makes him especially dangerous when he catches short passes in space and turns them into long TD's.

    JB relied less on mobility and more on pure speed coupled with Arians' play-calling/design.

    Big remaining issue - who do we have to replace Butler in 50-50 toss-up situations competing for the ball?

    Cardinals have traded DB Rudy Ford to Philadelphia for DL Bruce Hector. Hector played in eight games with the Eagles last season and had three tackles and a half sack. 2018 undrafted free agent.

    Hector (6-2, 296) played in eight games with the Eagles last season and had three tackles and a half sack. The 24-year old Hector originally entered the league with the Eagles in 2018 as an undrafted rookie free agent from South Florida.

    Did not see Michael Crabtree during open portion of practice. It's unlikely he plays in final two preseason games. Needs to learn playbook, get in game shape.

    Probably KJ? I was gonna say RSJ could be a possibility, for corner of the end zone jump balls, but after he missed that catch in the corner of the end zone against the Raiders..............? Geez, cracked me up that the announcers said the defender made a good play, ball hit him right in the chest & he missed it lol. Had he caught that, we would've won the game on the late TD pass to Wilson. I know it's only preseason but I'm greedy & wanna win them all. Even if Butler comes back this season, he hasn't done anything good in games yet, he is way behind. Guess he could just run to the corner & jump for it if we need that? I agree with everything you said about Isabella, I'm excited about his potential.

    Let the dude with pencil in his beard game plan for everything under the sky for week 1. Kliff should have a change of heart like Frank Reich and sit most of his starters for 3rd preseason game.
