The truth appears to be that the Arizona Cardinals never expected that Clemson All-American S/LB Isaiah Simmons to fall into their laps with the #8 pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.

In free agency, GM Steve Keim signed two LBs in SAM OLB Devon Kennard (Lions) and WILB De’Vondre Campbell (Falcons) to join BANDIT OLB Chandler Jones and MIKE ILB Jordan Hicks as the 4 LBs of Vance Joseph’s 3-4 defense.
