The Cardinals have released their first depth chart, and since coach Bruce Arians already explained what would have been the most noticeable move — LB Daryl Washington as third string, as the team prepares to not have him for the first four regular-season games — the rest of it kind of falls in line with how they have been practicing.
“I wouldn’t get too tied up with where anybody is at,” Arians said. “They might me listed as third in one package and be a starter in another package. I’m really not interested in answering a bunch of question where a guy is on the depth chart for this game.”
John Abraham is listed third at WILL linebacker behind Lorenzo Alexander and Matt Shaughnessy, but Abraham will be on the field in pass rush situations. Of that there is no doubt. Javier Arenas is listed as the No. 1 kickoff return man. Kerry Taylor is listed as the No. 4 receiver for now. Arenas and Antoine Cason are the backup cornerbacks to Patrick Peterson and Jerraud Powers. The rest of the lineup filters out pretty much exactly like they have been practicing in base looks on offense and defense.
Again, the whole chart is here.
