FTP: Aeneas makes for great stories

8/2/2014

Flush the Pocket will be your daily morning dose of the Arizona Cardinals. It will recap the top storyline from the previous day and give you a look at what everyone is saying locally and nationally.

Training camp may be going on but all eyes around the football world are focused on Canton, Ohio, for Saturday's Pro Football Hall of Fame induction ceremony. One of the seven inductees is Aeneas Williams, who will become the first Arizona Cardinal to be enshrined.

Throughout the weekend, plenty of great writing will be done on Williams and his journey to the Hall of Fame, from growing up in New Orleans to walking on at Southern to playing for the Cardinals and Rams.

Here's a tidbit of what's out there:
