The Arizona Cardinals open their 2014 version of Training Camp today at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale. With the start of any training camp come a number of questions that need to be answered as the Red Birds look to build on a very promising 10-6 campaign in 2013.

The Red Birds commence their second training camp at University of Phoenix Stadium at 2 p.m. this afternoon, one of 18 open practices between July 26 and Aug. 22.

Admission and parking are both free for all open practices.

Bruce Arians is entering his second season at the helm of the Cards and there is an air of stability around the club now. Players know what to expect, his offensive system is firmly in place and the Red Birds are a much more confident group presently then they were last year coming off a dismal 5-11 season.

While Arizona tries to capture its first playoff berth since 2009, many questions remain to be answered.

For example, can quarterback Carson Palmer perform like he did in the second half of last season throughout 2014?

Will dynamic second-year running back Andre Ellington, who led all NFL rushers with a 5.5 YPC average last year, handle his new role as the feature back?

How much will the Red Birds miss play-making linebacker Daryl Washington, who is suspended for the 2014 season? Can LSU product Kevin Minter step in and help fill some of the enormous void?

How much does new cornerback Antonio Cromartie have left in the tank?

Will free agent signee Jared Veldheer live up to his $35 million contract as Arizona's new left tackle? Can he protect Palmer's blind side? Who will win the open right tackle battle?

How much will the arrival of Ted Ginn, Jr. aid both their special team and wide receiver units?

Will 38-year-old Jay Feely win the kicker battle during camp?

So many questions. Not enough answers.


Those questions will be answered in due time.

Football is back – enjoy!
