Defensive tackle Robert Nkemdiche was the 29th overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft. But despite his lofty draft status, Nkemdiche has been mostly ineffective in his first two seasons with the Arizona Cardinals.
New Arizona head coach Steve Wilks has said Nkemdiche will have a clean slate with the new staff. The fresh start could be what Nkemdiche needs to get his career pointed in the right direction.
I’ve seen the improvement and I’m excited about where he is, but once again, it’s early, Wilks said. Once we get the pads on and start preseason games, we’ll see exactly where he is.
Gary Myers isn’t the only Hall of Fame voter who wants a T.O. do-over. Ira Kaufman of JoeBucsFan.com has written a scathing column that culminates in Ira jokingly (we think) asking for his ballot back.
Irvin recalled on Undeniable with Joe Buck that in his rookie year with the Cowboys, when they went 3-13, he grew angry, depressed and frustrated with the losing. He was shocked to find how many of his veteran teammates didn’t let losing bother them.
Irvin wanted to win badly enough that if he had to snitch to get rid of bad teammates, then he was happy to snitch.
Blake Jarwin is the only other tight end on the roster with experience, having played three offensive snaps in one game last season. Dalton Schultz and David Wells are rookies, and Rico Gathers spent his first two seasons on the practice squad and injured reserve respectively.
The hierarchy of players, I mean, the dispersion is not very great, Swaim, 24, said of being the oldest tight end. Witt was 15 years, I was three years. That’s a huge disparity. I’m going into my fourth year. Blake’s going into his second year. We’re all on the same level. We’re all working hard. We’re all competing. And we all know it. It’s pretty easy when you look at it like that.
