As the weather heats up in the Valley, things have slowed down somewhat in Arizona Cardinals country. Here are a few tidbits though:

**Details have not been made known yet but don't forget the Arizona Cardinals Fan Fest on June 11 at the University of Phoenix Stadium. It's always a fun time for Red Birds fans.

**The Cardinals will resume their final set of OTAs next week from Monday through Friday. Mandatory minicamp will follow from June 11-13.

**In general NFL news that also affects the Red Birds, the NFL Draft has been moved back from late April until May 8-10 next year. The NFL made this announcement which was posted on

“The change in the date of the 2014 Draft will have no effect on when rookies may begin to report to their clubs, the dates of off-season programs, or the length of off-season programs. Clubs will have available to them the same number of practice days that they currently have and no changes in the off-season calendar are being considered that would reduce the number of practice days or the overall length of the off-season program. At this time, changes are not anticipated in the off-season calendar for 2015 and beyond that would reduce the number of practice days or otherwise limit the off-season program.”

This will certainly benefit rookie players.
