Cardinals coach Bruce Arians would like to plan more joint practices but said planning them is difficult because both teams have to wait until the preseason schedule comes out in April. Arians has had discussions with Oakland coach Jack Del Rio about a joint practice and both coaches would like to do it but "we just haven't hooked up," Arians said. If the Cardinals had done a joint practice this year, it would've been this week in Atlanta, Arians said, but he chose not to since Arizona will be playing five preseason games this year. "It was just going to be too much," he said.

There are a lot of very established coaches that don't get a chance versus some young guys but sometimes you got the right connections."

The biggest benefit for Cardinals linebacker Deone Bucannon being taken off the PUP list Tuesday was his ability to start being a part of the Cardinals' walk-throughs, coach Bruce Arians said. "It's great just to be a part of it," Arians said. "To be able to walk through, get his going, get his keys. From watching film and standing behind, you don't get that, that view of where he needs to be. He's nowhere near ready but it's a good beginning."
