The article focuses on the football team Arizona Cardinals. OLB Karlos Dansby has the physical tools to become a dominant player, but he has been troubled by nagging injuries in his first two seasons. He's big enough to play the strong side, where he often has to take on tight ends. He has good speed, and his long arms are an asset in the pass rush and in coverage. Coach Dennis Green didn't keep enough experienced backups on the roster when the team broke camp. Converted DE Fred Wakefield and journeyman Adam Haayer are more comfortable at tackle but are starting at the guard spots.
