Josh Rosen referred to last weekend’s rookie minicamp as an extension of college, because the majority of players participating were getting their feet wet at the professional level.

The first-round pick graduated to the big-time on Tuesday. The Cardinals held their first organized team activity – OTA of the offseason, mixing in the rookies with Womens Joel Bitonio Jersey the veterans.

Running back Chase Edmonds said there was a lot running through his mind during practice, and he had to remind himself to stay calm and remember the playbook. But it wasn’t lost on him that he was now alongside running back David Johnson and other NFL stars for the first time.

I live for stuff like George Blanda Jersey that, Edmonds said, to compete against the best.

Among the players sitting out practice Wednesday was left tackle Jared Veldheer (elbow). Arians said the injury was day-to-day. If Veldheer would not be able to play Sunday, rookie Will Holden would replace him – which would put backup tackles on both sides. John Wetzel is already playing on the right side.

The Cardinals’ offensive line will have new pieces, but holdovers A.Q. Shipley (53), Mike Iupati (76) and D.J. Humphries (74) will have a chance to remain.

The quarterback is settled (for now), but when the offseason started the Cardinals – and new coach Steve Wilks – thought about the offensive line just as much.

I always try to see the big picture, and the big picture to me is up front on both sides of the ball, Wilks said. That’s one thing I want to do coming in and really try to improve the offensive line.
