"He came in like he was one of the guys. He got this playbook down so fast. I'm surprised the Patriots let him go, to be honest." – Arizona Cardinals ILB Kevin Minter on new teammate, OLB Chandler Jones.

On a per game basis, Brady's play is worth about 5.5 points per game, according to the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook. Even so, New England is currently favored in three of the four games for which he'll be suspended.

Simply put, Arizona is looking good

The Cards have achieved a rare feat in the NFL -- they're returning every player who caught a pass from Carson Palmer in 2015 and every player who scored an offensive TD last season. With so many returners, Arizona won't have to fully reteach its offense and can instead continue building on last season, write Josh Weinfuss. Under-the-radar storylines

"He's long and he's everything that you thought he was. He's a great worker. I'm glad he's on our team right now. I think he's going to have a great year." – Arizona Cardinals coach Bruce Arians on new OLB Chandler Jones.

Who carries the ball the most for the Arizona Cardinals will be determined on game-by-game basis, coach Bruce Arians said Thursday. When asked about how many carries RB David Johnson will get per game in 2016, Arians said: "If he's hot, he's staying in there. But there's no script right now for who's toting the ball and how many times." This is in line with Arians' philosophy of riding the hot hand, regardless of position, experience or status on the team.

Cardinals coach Bruce Arians doesn't think he'd retire if he won Super Bowl 51. "Be more apt to try to get two."
