Glendale Ariz — Bruce Arians addressed the media

first_img Glendale, Ariz. — Bruce Arians addressed the media on Sunday:Where is Blaine Gabbert in terms of picking up the offense?B.A.: “Way ahead of where I thought he’d be. To be able to come in — having been a part of so many systems it’s obvious he’s a very bright guy. But changing protections, seeing ‘hots’ and ‘sights’, he’s way, way ahead of where I thought he’d be and very, very pleased with that.” 0 Comments   Share   Top Stories Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald (11) takes the field during the first day of NFL football training camp, Saturday, July 22, 2017, in Glendale, Ariz.

It’s going to be a tough one to get but yeah, that’s why he’s out there.”What have you seen from Scooby Wright at inside linebacker?B.A.: “He had a hell of a spring. If he’d just quit tackling them wide receivers and tight ends going over the middle. He’s very aggressive. He has a knack to play the linebacker position. He’s trimmed down. It’s going to be a big camp for him.”What are you seeing from punters Richie Leone and Matt Wile?B.A.: “It’s early. They both picked kicked really well this spring. They’re both holding solid, so the kickoff part will play into it, too. That’s going to be a nice battle all the way through.”Monday will be the first padded practice at University of Phoenix Stadium and Arians said of who he is looking forward to seeing them in pads: “Every one of those offensive and defensive linemen, for sure, A couple of young tight ends, outside backers and see how that goes.“Even the running backs in blitz pick-up. See where they’re at and their technique is usually bad but the courage factor is the thing you want to see.” Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impactlast_img
