When Cardinals GM Steve Keim was asked about fourth-round pick Dorian Johnson's liver condition, he responded with a joke. "Some think coach (Bruce Arians) and I have some liver issues but we're doing just fine." After a moment, Keim admitted it was a "terrible joke. But no, he's fine. He's doing alright." Arians said Johnson "knows how to manage it," referring to Johnson's condition that has his liver enzymes increased by five times higher than normal. Later Arians added his own quip: "I'm still learning mine."

Arizona added a slew of versatile players that can help them compete for a playoff berth this season. However, there was one position Arizona didn't address: Quarterback.
