Coach Kliff Kingsbury and his Arizona Cardinals outfit endured a disappointing end to their 2020 NFL campaign. With Kyler Murray as their starter, the Cardinals finished 3rd in the NFC West with an 8-8 record. They made a few alterations to their roster in the summer.

He spoke about how the people in and around Phoenix have treated him like ‘one of their own’. There is no doubt that the former Texans man is eager to win a Lombardi before he calls time on what has been a distinguished career. Maybe Arizona is the right place for him to achieve that goal?
