Quarterback Carson Palmer was the top vote-getter for the Cardinals now that the public part of Pro Bowl voting has ended. Palmer got the fourth most votes of any player — 514,967, to be specific — and was also fourth overall in the NFL, since QBs all finished ahead of him (Brady, Newton, Dalton).
Free safety Tyrann Mathieu dropped a spot to third at his position, but Frostee Rucker made a late surge to get into the top 10. In all, 11 Cardinals were ranked in the top 10 in votes at their respective positions. Players and coaches vote later this week league-wide to come up with the final Pro Bowl tallies/roster, and they get announced Dec. 22.
The full Cardinals’ list:
— QB Carson Palmer fourth
— RB Chris Johnson eighth
— WR Larry Fitzgerald fourth (with an impressive 410,095 votes)
— G Mike Iupati fifth
— DT Calais Campbell fifth, Frostee Rucker seventh
— CB Patrick Peterson fifth
— SS Rashad Johnson seventh, Deone Bucannon 10th
— FS Tyrann Mathieu third
— Special teams Justin Bethel fourth
