The Arizona Cardinals have enjoyed some very successful OTAs and minicamps recently.

That's the good news. The bad news, to some degree anyway, is that head coach Bruce Arians would like to see his Red Birds contingent get into better shape, be better conditioned.

"We're not in the best shape," Arians told "We've got to get in better condition to play as fast as we want to play, especially offensively. Other than that, I've been extremely pleased. I like where our football team is right now."

The Cardinals won't all officially reconvene until training camp but many players will get together on their own before then. New Arizona signal-caller Carson Palmer will spend time with wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald, for example, at his camp in Minnesota.

Their hard work will not end just because minicamps have concluded.

"I'm not going to get away from anything," Palmer said. "I won't be taking any time off, and I don't think guys will be, or should be, taking time off. That first game isn't that far away."
