Overheard at camp: "Good job, boy." Those three words were a common refrain from cornerback Patrick Peterson throughout practice, whether they were focused at fellow cornerback Justin Bethel after a pass break up or other defensive backs after they made a play. Peterson was more vocal this practice than he has been throughout camp praising and encouraging his defensive teammates throughout the two-and-a-half hour practice.

Rookie report at camp: On a day when coach Bruce Arians called out the receivers of all levels for turning in their worst performance in five years the day before, rookie Chad Williams was steady throughout practice, making a handful of catches on 11-on-11 drills. He had one about midway through practice in traffic that caught the attention of the sideline.

Best play at camp: Linebacker Scooby Wright, who has developed a reputation for his aggressive play, started a practice full of highlights Tuesday with an interception of quarterback Drew Stanton early in the session. It was an athletic play, that saw him shift his body and tip the ball to himself. He continued his impactful day with physical hit later in practice along the sideline while in coverage.

Cardinals rookie WR Chad Williams told a story after practice today of him trying to emulate Larry Fitzgerald nine years ago … trying to catch a fish. Yes, that's right. A fish. Fitzgerald caught a fish one-handed during an appearance on Sports Science. A young Williams saw that and wanted to try his hand at catching fish while on a fishing trip with his brothers. Williams remembered catching 32 fish that day, but he didn't catch any of the fish – mostly bass – his brothers threw to him. Williams, who was the Cardinals' third-round pick this year, said he hasn't told Fitzgerald the story. Yet.
