Longtime defensive chess piece Tyrann Mathieu exits the desert, signaling just one of the many spots in which fans of the Arizona Cardinals will see new faces in 2018. Sam Bradford and Mike Glennon enter the quarterback room after Carson Palmer called it a career and Blaine Gabbert and Drew Stanton left during free agency. Both John and Jaron Brown also left from the wide receiver room as did Justin Bethel and Tramon Williams from the secondary.

This team will be almost completely different at many of the most polarizing positions come opening day as of their 26 unrestricted free agents from a season ago, only three return under the new regime (having signed contracts that is). That's not to say they haven't brought in some new faces, as they added the aforementioned duo at quarterback, brought in Andre Smith at tackle, Brice Butler at wide receiver, Justin Pugh at tackle and both Marcus Williams and Bene Benwikere at cornerback

There has been much turnover on the Cardinals roster, even before the draft, so with that in mind, what do PFF Senior Analysts Steve Palazzolo and Sam Monson think of their offseason so far?
