Dan Williams missed the Saints game and was away from the team all of last week including the Bucs contest. The players wanted to show him their support.
“It was tough,” Talley said. “But Dan looked so strong it was admirable at the same time. Seeing him with his family, seeing him with his daughter, and just seeing his entire family mourn but at the same time celebrate, and to see Big Dan smile ... He smiled so many times.
“It meant a lot. That’s all we wanted to do is say, ‘Hey, that’s our brother.’ We want to lend whatever hand of support we can.”
Williams, who was expected to rejoin the team Tuesday night, sent out text messages during the weekend thanking his teammates for making the trip.
“It’s one of those things you just definitely put your arm around him and tell him, 'We got your back,'” defensive end Calais Campbell said. “Simple as that.”
With the players off Tuesday, there wasn’t much news coming out of Cardinals’ camp. Here are a few of my stories and one about Super Bowl XLIX in Glendale.
