64 Days Until Kickoff

When the Cards don’t have an athlete wearing the days corresponding jersey number in 2021 I’m going to drop a quick stat, a “did you know” or maybe even a “you ain’t gonna believe this” below. You’re gonna need to click each day to find out what you get….

In ’64 the Arizona Cardinals selected Defensive Tackle Ken Kortas from the Cards with the 9th overall pick in the NFL Draft. Since that time the Cards have added 14 additional first round picks, with the most recent being Mekhi Becton to the New York Jets with the 11th pick in 2020.

Becton is a large human, but not even he can overshadow the birth of our country. Happy 4th to all the CC readers out there. Enjoy the day and please don’t do anything stupid...-er than you normally would.
