The NFL Network’s top 100 countdown continued tonight, and another Cardinal made the list, even though his body of work isn’t with the Cardinals. Linebacker Chandler Jones, who had 12.5 sacks last season for the Patriots, was named No. 48 on the list. He’s the second Cardinal thus far; defensive tackle Calais Campbell was No. 71.
Jones figures to have a huge impact on the Cards this season and at least repeat his sack total from a year ago. He was a needed piece to the defense, and here’s one validation in case anyone wasn’t sure.
Meanwhile, the countdown is down to 40 players. Will there be a rash of Cardinals still coming? You figure Larry Fitzgerald, Patrick Peterson and Tyrann Mathieu will all be on the list. Will quarterback Carson Palmer?
